So I knew this was going to be a great yard-saling weekend when I found a bunch of awesome stuff at a yard sale Friday Afternoon. Definitely not prime yard sale time – it had to be a good omen. Lots of awesome vintagey stuff this week – plus some random cubbies.
An old metal globe for my collection, an awesome antique level, and the wood casing from an old radio. All of the radio bits are gone and the inside is hollow. I am thinking this could make a cool little cabinet. (It’s hard to tell but the radio is about a foot and a half tall.)
Three of these cool little folding chairs.
Don’t hate me but this whole basket of vintage door knobs was only ten dollars. Woohoo!
I have been really wanting some of these and I finally found some cheap ones! Now, to figure out what to do with them. (How funny that one set of numbers is upside down). I also picked up several great frames, old mirrors, and vintage books (including a copy of Miracle on 34th Street from the 1940s).
And finally, the random cubbies. One of the sales we hit was at a church that was closing their preschool. They had a bunch of these sets of cubbies. The lady told me they were ten dollars. I think these would be really sweet to organize dress up clothes in a playroom. But since I have no kids and no playroom I told her that I was trying to cut back on buying stuff that I like but have no use for. She looked at me and said, “Okay, five dollars.” So unsupportive to my efforts. I had no choice but to buy them. (Right?) At that price, I figured I could use them to organize my basement if I can’t think of anything else. Later, I realized I could have bought a bunch of them, turned them on their sides and had the wall to wall bookshelves I really want. Oh well – next time.
What do you think? Would you have bought the cubbies? The other stuff? What’s your favorite find lately?
