This past weekend I intended just to check out an estate sale near my house, but circumstances kept having me stumble onto other yard sales and before Saturday was over I had spent a grand total of $46 on some sweet deals.
a green glass bottle for me;
a little storage bench
TWO BLUE JADITE BOWLS
FOR 50 CENTS EACH
Yes, 50 cents!
They were stacked in amongst lots of old pots, but
I have the instincts of a truffle-seeking pig when
it comes to great finds.
Lesseee.....oh, yeah, I got
a chair for $2
and some shutters
I was going to paint the chair but
the worn patina grew on me,
especially after I had washed
it in vinegar and water, then
polished it with baby oil.
I think the Baby will want this one.
The final purchase of the weekend was
four of these:
Four antique Bentwood chairs for $20
My sister says I have an antiquing angel
hanging with me.
