There are two types of people; those who love yardsales and understand the thrill of the hunt, and those who would rather do anything else (my husband).
Here is what I found today that, apparently, I couldn't live without:
I have been on an altered purse kick and as lovely as these are, my intention is to paint them.
I paid $1.50 for the blue liz claiborne and $1.00 for the red leather one.
I broke my last piece of glass cookware yesterday. It was a pyrex bowl and when I dropped it while doing dishes, it didn't just break, it exploded all over the kitchen floor. Today I looked specifically for ovenproof dishes.
I paid $1.00 for the white dish (which has a divider in the middle), 50 cents for the round bowl and a quarter for the square dish which is chipped slightly in the corner. I'll throw it away when I find something better.
Sometimes when I find old pictures or paintings which are framed, I buy them specifically to paint over the existing picture. These two oak frames had photographs in them and they'll be easy to gesso then paint. They looked like they were from the 1960s.
I paid $1.00 for both of these pictures.
This was my best purchase. A battery-operated organ for my Bean. My husband played on it for half an hour when I brought it in. It's like new except for the missing microphone holder.
I paid $5.00 for the organ and stool.
How do you feel about yardsales?
