So, I'm driving around in my small town on Friday and I see yard sale signs. Little did I know it would lead me to a gold mine of vintage goodness at amazing prices. I was crazy with delight! Here's what I found.
|I have never seen a 1950's Holiday by Thermos ice chest before in the turquoise color. I about jumped on top of it to claim it. And the price? $7. It's all metal and though it has some scratches and dings, it is charming and the inside is perfect!|
|1950's English metal tray $1|
|I was drooling all over this...1950's train case - mint condition. It's perfect inside too! I'm going to display it, but also use it for my makeup traveling. $1|
|1964 Midge Doll Case. I've always wanted one of these, but have only seen them in antique stores for upwards of $15. This was $3|
|Wind Up Tin Toys from the 70's - $2|
So I always like to show you what I do with what I find. I'm a person who asks myself the question, "What can I do with this?" at yard sales. If I can't answer I usually pass or buy it to sell. So, here's what I did!
|I used the cooler as storage in my favorite room of my house, the laundry room. Favorite since my husband help me paint and remodel it!|
|It's gonna hold things that were up on the shelf I left doors on for storage because, I had hubby take the doors off and give me more display space!|
|I hung the tray here.|
|And here is the display area now. Oh how I love to do laundry in here.|
|This I didn't get at the sale...it was at Goodwill. It's from 1978 but has the 1930's Bisquick ad on it. I thought it was so cute. Me and my recipe boxes.|
|And I leave you with beauty you can't buy...Daffodils making their grand appearance in my yard.|
