In the last week or so I’ve shopped a little at an estate sale, and a couple of thrift stores. I took pictures along the way. They are all from my phone, some of them were texts to jamie to see if she wanted me to pick up something for her.
First stop—estate sale! I entered through the garage, and walked right into the basement. When I saw this fridge, I knew it was an indication of the type of “loot” I was about to see.
There were several of these old school chairs for $4 each.
4/$6 with an extra tray
The same day I went to the estate sale, I went to Tickled Pink.
I don’t remember, but it looks like this folding chair was $4.99.
Typing table $8
Typewriter (I didn’t notice the mooning man while I was taking the picture!)
clear glass plate .75
I ended up buying both the vase and the plate for myself, thinking it would make a great birdfeeder totem.
The name says it all folks!
There are treasures abound, but you have to dig for them.
Stuff is piled up everywhere. Can you spot the bed?
I sort of wanted these 2 mirrors for chalkboards, but being plastic, and $8 each, I passed.
Most items aren’t marked at this Junk Store—I don’t like that. I feel like they size you up to see if you’re willing to pay—that they might give someone else a lower or higher price. I thought of my good friend Rose when I saw this red toolbox.
It’s almost time for Glendale preparation, so I have to pick up some chalkboard victims.
I love painting these oversized artwork pieces with chalkboard paint. I sure hope I never paint over a priceless masterpiece!
So, I ended up getting both typewriters, a couple of kids vintage chairs and a clock (not shown) for Jamie, the two paintings (5 for both) and the large wooden (former headboard?) piece. Also, as I said the two glass pieces.
There was “one that got away”. I was at Tickled Pink before they opened. I was in line to go into the garage, otherwise known as the “rough room”. There were about 5-6 people in front of me. When the door opened, most people went to the left. Only one person ahead of me went to the right…he was only two steps ahead of me, but SNAP, he ripped off the price tag just as I was moving in on a vintage record cabinet. Jamie was so disappointed! It’s like it all happened in slow motion. It was only $10. Sorry baby girl, I tried!
I haven’t been to a yard sale all summer. It’s been too hot. It was good to get some junkin’ in. What would you have snatched up? Have you found anything lately?
