So are you ready to see what I got at the “Epic Yard Sale?” Not so much, but it was fun looking!
I did buy one of those Skotch Jugs to put in my Etsy shop. They were offering the whole shebang for one low, low, price, but I figured the state of my marriage was worth a little more.
Now if they had been the typewriters… (wink wink)
This handmade wooden Coca-Cola sign is another score for my nephew. His birthday is a month before Christmas, so I think I'm fully covered now.
We didn’t get that metal sign with the misplaced apostrophe; it was $50 so we passed. Although it might have been worth it just to see my pseudo-grammarian son’s head explode.
There were a bunch of vintage doorknobs, but I have quite a stash already. So I just got a few special ones (the one on the left is amethyst).
I also got this pack of tarnished silverware for another alleged project. I’m sure I’ll forget I bought them! If something is not directly in my line of vision, I don't remember I have to work on it/fix it/list it/make it.
After the Epic Yard Sale, we stumbled across an estate sale (by owner). Great scores at great prices! Like this pretty plate -- you know what I’ll be doing with it!
This pair of vintage (claimed to be 1940s but I’m guessing later) bamboo hand-painted Asian fans, also for my Etsy shop.
A simple silver urn for floral displays…
…and a lovely still-life oil painting.
All good stuff, but I think my favorite find was this tea cart with glass inserts for only $8! It has already been painted and used as a party display tray for drinks and snacks.
