Before I tell you about my awesome garage salen day on Friday, I wanted to show you this wooden pulley that I forgot to post a photo of last week. I bought it at the same garage sale that I bought the Jarts at and with all the excitement over the Jarts, I totally forgot about it.
OK, on to this week.
I found this picnic basket at a neighborhood garage sale for $3.00. They had two other picnic baskets there that I was looking at, but didn’t buy. Sometimes you have to leave things for other people to have the thrill of discovering. And save yourself some cash.
I had bought a similar square picnic basket last year, so, stacked one on top of the other, they should make a nice arrangement for my 4th of July decor.
I fell in love with this extremely rusty old scale as soon as I laid eyes on it. It’s a Perfection Slanting Dial Scale for only $5.00.
Did you ever buy something and then have no idea why you bought it? Meet my $3.00 yellow Pyrex 2 1/2 Quart mixing bowl. I really have no need for another mixing bowl and although I like Pyrex I don’t really collect it. It is sort of cheery though and could actually be used for potato salad!
If you’re interested in dating your Ball canning jars, this site is a good reference.
And the $3.00 shelf they are sitting on is another one of my garage sale finds. It used to look like this.
I am planning on painting it at some point in the next week or so. Green possibly. Probably won’t be applying any 1980’s wallpaper to it though.
