It was a crisp, but sunny Saturday a.m., as Debbie and I, along with her daughter, Tiffany, hit the yardsales in Chelsea and found a couple of estate sales and a few yardsales. This one was out in the country at this neat house and the lady had a huge barn filled with all sorts of collectibles and antiques. We got excited just driving up and scoping out the scene.
The barn was a treasure trove. She has been an antiques collector for years and was in declutter mode.
Debbie spotted this set of shutters and got them for the fantastic deal of $5! I was about to wrestle her for them, but really she can use them more than I can and they will be so cute down at her Gulf Shores condo. I think this was the deal of the day though. She was a happy girl. I think I’ve created a monster now and Debbie finally “gets” the yardsale and thrifting thing. ‘Bout time!! 🙂
I only found 2 things at that sale and these were my finds for the day. A rickety old plant stand with a lot of character.
The top is 1/2 falling apart, but it will look cute with a nice plant on top, so I’ll just have to find the right spot for it. It was $10.
And this pretty old old painting was $20, more than I usually spend, but I loved it, so decided a splurge was OK for something like this. I’ve got a fun project going with all my vintage artwork that I can wait to show you, so this will be joining them.
