Garage Sale Finds
Ready to see my treasures I accumulated last week at my town’s community garage sales? I found some really fun stuff. Most of it is pictured here but there are a few bigger pieces that I didn’t get pics of before they were stashed away. A couple chairs, a desk, 2 end tables, a writing desk, and the couch we got for my daughters room. I shared a pic of that on Instagram. I’ll shoot some pics of it in its new home soon too.
My teenager insisted I had to buy this cute bike. How could I resist those white wall tires and that banana seat?! And the price tag was pretty compelling too – $5. The bike came home with us. My 8 year old is thrilled with it. It’s larger than her current bike and the wheels are bigger so it goes faster and easier. She begged me not to re-sell it – I told her it is hers as long as she fits it
The pink chair shown behind the bike in the pic above this one and this little green chair I picked up for a buck each. I intended to give them each another coat of paint and take them along to my next even. My 8 year old claimed them too though, and hauled them up to here little ‘playhouse’ in the top of our playset. She set them beside each other and declared it a ‘bench’. She has quite the conglomeration of stuff up there – I told her I need to do a photo shoot of it all and blog about it. Love that she is playing outside and using her imagination in her play.
I seem to have a fetish for old baseball bats. I have quite the collection now and need to make something with them or display them somehow. Or resell them if I”m not going to do anything fun with them.
Old toolboxes. My husband sometimes claims them but these two he let me have!This was all the stuff I hauled home in my car. The big stuff I had to have Travis use the truck to pick up. I will get pics of it as I pull it out to give it makeovers or to pack to haul to an event.
Do you love vintage finds and have you found any lately?
