It's time to show my garage sale loot for the weekend. These are my Friday finds.
This was the first time I had ever seen this Fire King piece in this pretty robin's egg blue before and now I'm going to be hunting for more pieces in this color. I don't think the photos do the color justice. It is gorgeous. I am in love with it. I might have to sleep with it under my pillow tonight.
And a cute silver pedestal bowl, because I am on a mission to save all the homeless silver pieces in the world.
Now you might be asking yourself much I paid for all this awesome stuff? Well, I bought it all for 45 cents! When I gave the lady two quarters she started digging for the nickle in change. I let her keep the nickle. I was being generous that day.
On Saturday I went to a community garage sale. Normally these things happen in developments, but in this instance it was a bunch of houses on a couple of country roads that all got together to have their sales on the same day. Lots of neat stuff and lots and lots of driving between houses.
So, do you think this guy is having a yard sale? I just loved his over the top advertising scheme.
But then I saw these wooden slatted things. I thought they were neat looking, but had no idea what they were, so I asked one of the farm guys about them. Old windows/vents from the barn. You can't tell from the photo but this is a substantial piece - probably weighs 10-15 pounds and is at least 6 inches thick. They were selling them for $2.00.
