My Big Yard Sale Find

Memorial Day Week-end Finds

There are yard sales everywhere in the neighborhood and I determined not to stop at any one of them. Then I saw the small antique hutch and suddenly I was pulling over, walked directly to the lady calling out the prices of each item and I asked how much?
50.00

I said to her, "Remember me, I am going to the bank to get cash and I will be right back. Don't sell it to anyone else". I allowed myself to buy this one thing and that's it, but I took out a little extra just in case. When I came back there were more things put out for sale and as the day progressed they kept bringing out more as the lady stated "to get rid of". I asked if it was an estate sale and it came as a surprise to me when she said, "No, but who needs all these old things", (Huh?) She would give a price and then ask if it was too high? The prices were so low I determined once I spent my limit, not to buy anymore since I have no room in my home for anything else.
5.00 handmade carpet.

Dish rack 10.00
This is a project where I will need to sand and paint in the dark choco-black and then distress it. It will be a great bit of fun with lasting reward.


Have a wonderful start on your Memorial Day week-end; I did.
