Ugly pics, first, lol...this is some sort of hammered brass container, some really nice, heavy brass sconces and look, I found ANOTHER one of those bucket things, this one is purple and you know I am painting that! I got all of this for a quarter, yes, a quarter! The brass items came from a lady who was GIVING everything away...now, I have seen "Free Boxes" at garage sales, but I have never seen a GIVEAWAY garage sale, wow! (Oh, the purple thing costs $.25 at a different garage sale, I think I got ripped off, lol!)
I also got some pretty yellow cloth napkins, 2 old Electronic/Electrician books (my dh is an electrician) and a vacuum cleaner...for my 4 year old...both of my boys are fascinated by vacuums, my 13 year old can tell you all about Dysons and even all about Mr. Dyson himself, too funny :)
I wish I had brought my camera, because we had to walk down a LONG HILL to get to the car and my 4 year old would not let anyone help him with the vacuum, too cute!
OK...grab your sunglasses because the next pic is going to be BRIGHT! And FUCHSIA, yes, FUCHSIA...I'm so sorry...
I paid $1 for each of these, at different garage sales...and I need these for our faux fireplace in the basement...what a project our basement will be, can't wait to post a WWYD post about it soon :)
OK, now on to my $1 Store Garage Sale...this lady had NICE stuff and EVERYTHING was $1...even the Spiderman I-Dog that my 13 year old bought, wow! Make sure to click on this pic, to see the items better...those black damask things are Brighton heart shaped tins...you know where they're going, straight to our bedroom!
(Oh, the little picture with the cupola was from another garage sale, also only a $1...it goes so well with that black birdcage candle holder, love how that worked out! I also LOVE the clock, it is marked Hill Street PTO 2001 and it WORKS, so sweet!)
These are COASTERS, you put PICTURES in them...how neat is that, especially for $1:
Then I went Christmas shopping! Look at those RED GENUINE LEATHER JINGLE BELL NAPKIN RINGS!!! Aren't they fun, only a $1, wow! 3 cute little crystal-like trees, an ornament lidded bowl, a sled that I can get creative with and the NOEL blocks candle holder which I just fell in love with...got everything for a great price, too!
The Jingle Bell napkin holders deserve a close-up:
I am getting addicted to garage saling again, lol. Which is not good because the season is almost over...and we really don't have alot of them out here where I live, but so far, so good, so I'll keep plugging along!
In 2003, my dh was working in Kokomo, IN and our older son and I would hit the garage sales all of the time there for something to do, it was alot of fun. That was before DS2 came along, so now it is fun to take him along...he thinks it's Christmas all over again! lol
If anyone has any suggestions about the brass container, I would love to hear them, thanks!
Have a wonderful weekend!
(haha, look at the address of this blog post, silly blogger.com!, ya'd think they would not allow that to happen, oh well, I'm a mom and therefore that word no longer scares me;)
