In other news, I was able to squeeze in a rummage sale on Friday evening at a church in U. City. They had a "vintage" section with some cute things, but it was a little overpriced for my blood. Instead, I picked up some newer items...
|A nice white basket for living room storage|
|A brand new bamboo cutting board|
|And a straw purse with faded leather straps and a brass hippo clasp|
On Saturday my parents and I hit up some estate sales. There were a couple good ones in there with lots of vintage things, some with newer, and some people just blatantly false advertising. I went to one listed as a "rummage" sale that turned out to be a really poorly stocked garage sale, and another advertised as an estate sale that was the same quality as the earlier "rummage" one. Do you guys run across that, too? And get annoyed like I do? :)
In any case, I can't complain about the final haul...
|I'm going to hang this tin on the wall to use as a chalk holder for my chalkboard|
|A vintage salt shaker with a mustard lid|
|A metal frog|
|A Farrington jewelry box in really great shape...|
|Will go well with my great-aunt's that I use on my dresser|
|A couple vintage tea towels|
|A Moosewood cookbook (hooray!)|
|More Ball (and a couple Atlas) canning jars|
|A very '50s set of luggage|
|And a Cosco chair/step stool that's in really great shape for its age. A little wear on the rubber, but it goes perfectly with the red metal cart in the kitchen.|
This chair has made me alter the palette in the kitchen a bit...now it's going to be mostly light blue and red, with some mustard sprinkled in for good measure (and to keep it from becoming too "USA").
What goodies did you pick up this weekend??
