Welcome back to Fun Friday Finds.
I didn't actually go to any garage sales this week. I decided I just had too much going on with VBS and a birthday party, and an extra large Etsy shipment to get ready, so...I didn't go. It was kind of rainy anyways, so it's probably a good thing I hadn't been looking forward to it like usual, or I would have been disappointed.
But....I do have some things to show you none the less.
Last week on Saturday, we decided to take a little family trip to a town about an hour away from here. We had heard they were having a "Trading Days" flea market. Well, as it turns out it wasn't very big, maybe only 12 vendors or so, but I did find some good things.
A pair of great old metal pulleys for $15. These things are heavy, I'm guessing maybe 15lbs each. I haven't decided if I want to keep one and sell one, or sell them both. (Can we say "flat rate shipping box?")
Two great little wooden levels - $3.
I think I'm keeping these.
An old feed sack for $3.
The man who was selling these said he got a whole tub of them at an auction for $4!! He only had 3 of them with him at this sale, and this was the nicest of the three. I'm thinking of keeping it and using it as a photo prop for some of my Etsy pictures.
A stop at Goodwill during the week produced some clothes for the kiddos and I, and this funny little glass jug cloche thing for the shop.
And this last piece was a side of the road find for free. It's a good thing it was just at the end of our street 'cause I could just barely wedge it in my trunk, and then I drove very slowly back home as it hung out the back.
I'm thinking it was a display rack for a store or something, maybe to hold bread or pastries. It has casters on the bottom of it.
I'm not really sure what I'm going to do with it yet, I have a few ideas swirling around in my head, but I wonder what you think? What would you do with it? What creative things can you suggest?
