Garage Sale Goodies....

Oh how I love garage sales! Unfortunately I never get to go! I probably could more but I hate going by myself. Anyways today we went to a couple, we got started very late as hubby had to work and then I had to deliver some candle orders. We also stopped at the salvation army and there I hit the mother load of goodies!


I found this cute little jar for only .79 and several other littles ones that you see for .39! Woohoo!

This little beat up silver cup was only .39 as well, It's pretty beat up but that is what I love about it!

This little thing with the silver bowls in it I am not so sure about, I have seen similar items that people have found while blog hoppin but this one is different than those, but I figured if I paint the middle piece it will look alot better. I believe it was 1.79.


I love love love this little set, these were 1.49 I believe. They are so cute and are in excellent shape! Would you like cream with that? Hahaha, sillly me....


And this be my favorite find of all!!! This was only 10.00, you can't see the top but it has a back on it with pretty wooden decals on it, no idea what you call them. I love the hardware and the little keyholes, won't she be pretty black and antiqued? Ohhh I can't wait to finish it, this will definately get worked on tonight. It's very shiny so I have lots of sanding to do, but other than that, it's a solid sturdy little dresser. I had to have it, hubby took us home and went back and yes shoved it in our car, lol. We so need a truck, If we had a truck my house would be full, seriously.


I also found this set of wood bowls, the big bowl and 4 little bowls for 3 something. Not sure what I will do with the little ones but the big one I want to paint black but no no no I will paint it white as I need more than black. Any ideas for the little ones? In this picture you can kind of see the back of the dresser that I am talking about and the little wooden things, lol.


Some other goodies I scored were some small styrofoam trees for .39, a bag of baby blocks, new shoes for my littlest bugaboo for 1.00, and a couple of tommy outfits, but I won't bore you with those pictures. Oh and I got a nice wooden breadbox that just needs some paint and antiquing, not sure about using it as a breadbox but will work for something and only 1.49! Come back tomorrow and see what I do with all of my goodies! I can't wait to see all of your weekend finds!

You can't beat Salvation Army Thrift Stores! I love to stop at ours--if I can find a parking place. You had a great time, it looks like to me!
Love the jars, too! Hope to see you over my way someday...

Rhonda in OK said...

really nice stuff and great prices.

The 4 bowl thing on a stand was probably used in a restaurant in the 60's and 70's. They served the salad dressing and baked potato toppings in them

Enchanted Rose Studio said...

Loads of wonderful finds! The wooden bowls are great and I love the dresser! Can't wait to see it all painted and fabulous!

Thanks for sharing!

I have that exact dresser. I stripped turquoise paint off of it to get to that natural wood. So much easier to go the opposite direction. I bought mine in South Carolina when my husband was a student at Clemson. I paid a lot more than you and still felt like it was a deal.

Nissa said...

love the glass jars! I bought one just like your largest one a couple weeks ago. It now holds q-tips in my master bath :)

Mary said...

those glass jars are great! you found some really great deals! :O)

Forever Vintage said...

I usually grab those jars when I see them as well. Great for holding all kinds of things. I can't wait to see the dresser transformation :)

Nicole -
You found some nice treasures. I used to hate to go to garage sales by myself, but then I told myself that I might be missing some great deals :)

Goodwill Haunting said...

Wow, great finds ... but the dresser was the best!! I can't wait to see what you do with it and the bowls!

Kendra @ Domestic Princess in Training said...

You sure did find some good stuff. I love to all things silver too, to more beat up the better! I think it gives it a little character.

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Hi, Nicole! Visiting from Rhoda's party. :) I love your buys! Can't wait to see what you do with the dresser. The apothecary jar is great!! :)

Kim said...

Great finds! Love the dresser. Can't wait to see how it turns out. The thrift stores & yard sale prices here where I live in California are much higher. So I get jealous of the fabulous deals you all seem to find.

Christina said...

Wow, you found some great things. Love the wooden salad bowl, and you got a fantastic deal on the dresser.

Courtney said...

Those are neat wooden bowls-cute little legs on that big one.
Blessings!
