What a Bust!

Please pop over and see what treasure everyone found!

Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays
A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words for 2nd Time Around Tuesday


Coloradolady for Vintage Thingie Thursday


Well, last weekend was disappointing, to say the least.
The weather was beautiful,
so I expected to see LOTS of garage sales...
no such luck.
We
My daughter and I hit a small one and picked up
a pink Depression Glass plate and a container of small ornaments.

I'm sure the plate is a reproduction, but it's still pretty
and for a buck I couldn't leave it there.
I'll figure out some crafty thing to do
with the ornaments (.50) come winter.


We then stopped in at Salvation Army.
Their prices are kinda high, but we were desperate!
I walked out with this pretty pillow sham ($2)
and a Rosemary Tile ($1)


Depressed by the lack of the hunt
we headed over to the Antiques Mall.
With 15 vendors, there's always lots of
eye candy to cheer ya up ☺




I walked out with some great magazines ($1 ea).
 I'm a magazine-aholic.
With prices for mags are through the roof,
love it when I nice find used ones.

I noticed this vintage reindeer candle ($1),
she's lost her wick but I fell for her.


Then I spied an adorable napkin holder ($5).
Not sure if you can see, but it is a cup of coffee
with steam rising.
I'm going to use it to hold by Mr Clean Eraser.
It will keep it right at reach.


I've been looking for shelves to place on top of
a small cabinet I have in the living room.

When I saw this hutch I knew it would work.
I do need to give it a light makeover,
but love the shape.


So, I guess we turned a dud Saturday around!

  2. I would say that you found some great treasures! Ours was a complete bust though. No sales, nothing at the SA, and the antique mall I had just been to and didn't find ANYTHING I couldn't live without!

  16. Found you from NTT. LOVE the hutch. It's a great size, one that can be moved around easily when you want to mix things up. I'm sure you'll fill it with beautiful things.

  22. I hate it when there aren't any good sales but i must say the pickings have been excellent around here recently. I know what you mean about getting desperate when the pickings are slim. I resort to eBay ... (bad girl!!)

    ReplyDelete
  23. That's a lot of stuff for one day.

  24. I certainly know how you feel about a disappointing yard sale day or thrift shop hunt. I can't seem to go home until I get my "fix!"
    I do love that sweet little reindeer, I would have purchased her too!
    Fondly,

  26. You ended up with a few good things! The reindeer is so cute and I love the pillow sham too. Can't wait to see the hutch done up.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Don't you love it when a 'so-so' yard saling trip turns into a "WooHoo" trip? I have had that happen to me more times than I care to think. Just when you are ready t pack it up and go home, you find a goldmine! Great finds.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yes, garage saling is just awful here too. I love that hutch that came home with you, especially the curvaceous sides! I can't wait to see what you're going to put on it!
    Happy VTT!

  31. I love your reindeer candle - it brings back such memories for me, we had a little wax lamb ornament with silver glitter when I was little. It predated me, I think it was from the 40's??? And I love the napkin holder - I was a bit lost at first and then it began to take shape. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I really like your hutch! Old magazines, especially favorite ones are always a treat!!

    Love,
    Susan and Bentley
