The garage sales were still few and far between. I came out of a couple empty-handed. I am convinced that the more poorly worded your garage sale ad is, the more likely I'm going to score some GOOD JUNK. So, let's see what I picked up this weekend.
This cabinet is from one of those aforementioned poorly worded garage sales. One of those sales that listed "old typewriter" and I knew I had to be there as soon as they opened their doors. Of course "old typewriter" was something similar to what I used as a kid growing up in the 90s. It had elctronic settings and plugged into the wall. I was rather disappointed until I spied this cabinet, which had a price tag of $4. How could I say no? It will be used as a display piece once it gets a face life. I had to wipe spiderwebs off the bottom before it could be fully loaded in my truck. I walked back up to ask if I could throw away the paper towel and I spied these...
Simple, but beautiful stained-glass windows that they had saved from a house long, long ago.
These were the rest of the non-holiday finds.
An old phone and a chalkware Virgin Mary. She was a little rough around the edges and had been touched up in a couple of spots, but I knew she had potential (I owe my knowledge on these to Gina).
A weirdo clippy thing that I will use to display postcards or pictures, a lard tin, an Old Spice shaving mug, an ironstone platter, 2 art deco light covers, 2 floral frogs, and 2 cookie cutters.
The holiday finds were this (hand made) Santa face pitcher that will match all my mugs and these Lefton holly berry mugs.
Well, that's it for the finds, which brings me back to my original question: how am I going to top last week? And then it hit me. I owe you guys a giveaway!
Included in the giveaway is everything pictured above: 2 vintage embroidered linens, 7 unused vintage mini spring cards, an adorable vintage Easter postcard, a mini vintage Easter card, 6 Dennison spring gummed labels, a pair of vintage souvenir S&P shakers from Indiana, a cute little vintage plastic deer, and a vintage Si-Nax bottle from Indianapolis, Indiana.
