Some garage sales finally happened here this past weekend. Yay!
A small town about a half hour away was having a town garage sale so, crazy fools that we are, we decided that the cold and the rain wasn’t going to stop us.
I’m talkin’ winter coats, gloves, and umbrellas people! Yikes!
About 5 minutes away from home I said: “I think this may be a fool’s quest.”
John said: “Probably, but when has that ever stopped us before?”
We had a good laugh and instead of turning back we kept on a goin’.
Turned out we weren’t the only crazy fools. lol. We were in very good company.
While there weren’t that many sales because of the weather, only those with actual garages were set up, I think we managed to find a few cool things.
But I’ll let you guys be the judge of how us two crazy fools did. 🙂
This $1 vintage pink wire cutlery tray is slightly too large for my vintage kitchen cabinet drawers. I’ll be using it to sort my wind chime silverware.
I’ll be saving the 50 cent vintage grapefruit spoon set for a project.
The vintage cookie maker rosette set will be put in my etsy shop at some point. I have another set of the rosettes somewhere to go with it, so I’ll have to find those.
This sweet light teal $1 Paragon fine bone china creamer and sugar set was Made in England. It’s very pretty and in excellent condition.
This vintage $3 1953 Paragon teacup and saucer set is a favourite find.
It was made to commemorate the crowning of Queen Elizabeth II.
Lately I’ve been having a thing for vintage brass bells like this $1 set of 3 marked Made in England.
They all have they’re original clangers and they sound quite heavenly.
This vintage brass Victorian lady or Southern Belle bell was $2.
She has a lovely worn patina and still has her original Made in Korea label hiding inside her dress.
She has a nice weight to her, and her original clanger has a nice but heavier sound than the set of bells above.
And last but certainly not least I found this lovely $1 wooden bouquet.
Through no choice of our own, over the past few years, we’ve donated most of the tulip bulbs in our gardens to our local chipmunks. Or chippies as we affectionately call them because they’ve been chipping away at our tulip population.
Apparently they’re a delicacy in these parts. The tulip bulbs, not the chippies. lol.
So if I want tulips I’ll have to settle for the life-size bulb-less forever-blooming wooden variety.
Oh well, as long as the chippies are happy. 🙂
So how did we crazy fools do?
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time…
keep on keepin’ on!
