This weekend there was a huge indoor yard sale at our county fairgrounds. Twice each year 100+ people rent spaces and bring in their lovely, weird, wacky, and wonderful items to sell to treasure hunters (or junk hoarders) like me. I thought it would be fun to show you some of the things I saw (and bought) – like you were there with me! 😉
Since I didn’t bring my big camera with me, these are cell phone pics (as you can tell by the fuzziness!) –
And below are the lovelies that I bought! Since I’m always looking for unique items for my booth, I usually buy whatever I fall in love with (if I can get it at a decent price). Sometimes once I get it home though, I have a hard time parting with it!
I am madly in love with this table… and I am always on the lookout for colored glass.
I love the colors in this vase – and it’s about 18 inches tall!
This old camera just oozes coolness. And the box below it will look cool once I paint it. 😉
This vintage cake plate is so whimsical. I don’t even bake, but I might be tempted to keep it anyway.
I shared this Fisher Price camera on my Facebook page this weekend – I had one as a child so I just HAD to buy it for my boys. (Plus they’ve come to expect a “new” toy whenever I tell them I’m going to yard sales… *sigh*)
And of course I bought the mirror. You can’t beat $3.00! It will look gorgeous painted.
This chair and the table above are probably my favorite scores. Of course the chair needs a ton of work and I haven’t quite decided what I’m going to do with it yet. It’s missing a small piece from the top and that leather is in terrible condition – but the carvings and the square tacks stole my heart!
So how did I do?
Is there anything I bought that you would’ve bought – or anything you would’ve passed on?
Let me know, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
