Managed to sneak out to some yard sales 2 weekends ago. I really wanted to look for an old suitcase to an underbed storage thingie I saw in a Better Homes and Gardens Storage magazine I picked up. Since I only had 1 kid with me I thought I could quickly stop and check out a yard sale or two. I made it to 2 and hit jackpot at both!! The first one was right across the street from me!
Found this cool bar set thingie at my almost neighbours house. She sold me 3 things for $1, so I guess that means I paid $0.33ish for this little gem. She didn’t even know what was inside. When I shook it and asked, ‘what’s in there?’ she said ‘I don’t know it was my Dad’s’. It even has the key!
Then I decided to just follow signs if they happened to be along my way to my final destination and I happened upon this lovely find.
I was so nervous asking how much it was, in my head I was praying they didn’t notice how great it was and name some crazy price. She said “$2?” I couldn’t believe it! So I just acted kind of cool and said “hmmm . . . . ok I guess”. hehe! As I was walking away I heard her say it was her great grandfathers!! Who sells something like that!? It’s in wonderful condition. I can’t see any year or anything that tells me what year it’s from. There is some writing on the front that says “Made in Czechoslovakia” but that’s it.
Here’s a shot of the project I was hoping to find a suitcase for. It’s in the summer 2010 Storage magazine by Better Homes and Gardens. I can’t bear to cut the top off to use it for the underbed storage, I’ll have to keep looking for one suitable for that project.
The next weekend I wandered around some sales with some friends and found these awesome dishes! They’re in fantastic condition.
I also grabbed these cute little mugs! It’s a set of 4 and they were all individually wrapped in plastic and then they were sitting in a little cardboard tray and wrapped in plastic again. They are flawless, such a cute and fun find.
I can’t wait to go out again before the summer is over!
