This and That Thursdays

misc 2 003 

On Farm Chicks glamping weekend a few of us headed out to some garage sales.  Bonnie (Spokane Valley) drove us to some really fun ones.

Our first stop was at a vintage sale where the gals love to shop all year long and turn over their goods for the same price they paid for it..thereby thrilling everyone who stops by.   What a blast!   I couldn’t believe the prices.

Most of the stuff you see here was $1 each…love those 1920’s silverware trays!  Practical me, had to get the measuring tape for my trailer.  The beautiful white bedspread is for my bathroom…I am going to make a shower curtain out of it…..$3.

And this little Daisy wastebasket for ‘Driving Ms. Daisy’ my Shasta!

(Sorry about the lousy pictures.)  This was picked up at another place Bonnie spilled us…a retirement community…talk about a great place to shop for vintage!  I couldn’t believe my eyes when I spotted this magazine holder….a great match for my ‘Driving Ms. Daisy’ 1969 Shasta trailer.  A little red spray paint and we have a match!  $1!

This beautiful crucifix looks to be silver…it’s in perfect shape…and it was super cheap.

And here’s a little tease from Karen’s Koop….coming soon!  I have light!

  1. You picked the right day for shopping. All your finds are great vintage pieces.

  2. Waaahhh! I really missed out. Why did you have to post all that good stuff? Boo hooooooo. Poor me. Sniff sniff. Pouting now!

  3. I don't which I would have enjoyed more - the glamping trip or the garage sales. How fun that you got to do both. And look at all that treasure you dug up!

    Thanks for linking to the party. It's always good to have you join in the fun. ;)

  4. Love it all!! Oh my gosh, that magazine holder will be perfect in red and that waste basket with the daisies was meant to be yours.

  5. The red and white boxes are my favorite. I would really love the Farm Chicks sale--great time I'm sure.

  6. you found some perfect items, just for you!
    The light fixture looks very similar to the light in our living room.... I love it!
