weekend discoveries

not all of these things were found at garage sales...like this wonderful ivory clock, discovered for a very good price at our local antique mall


garage sale

garage sale. this really needs a thorough cleaning, yes?


these lovely repro pool balls were found at tj maxx! i only go there about three times a year - and these have to be one of my favorite non junk/non vintage finds ever:)



there were two bags left and i bought both. and fyi - they are 12.99 per bag. i'll likely feel guilty and end up taking one bag back...i'm funny like that.



garage sale. original box. the pleasant older gentleman who sold them to me even sang the little buster brown advertisement jingle from days gone by...priceless!


garage sale for only fifty cents ( i still feel tacky when i mention prices, but i know that i love to read all the details on others' blogs!)









i found this glass wall lamp at a garage sale and then added the darling little vintage shade that i found at a flea market several years ago...


thanks for stopping over:)

I like to hear prices, too! I don't think it's tacky at all. It makes the find a bigger treasure. The little table is lovely!

trash talk said...

I'm digging the pool balls! I only mention prices if it is something I am keeping. It's not that I'm being all secretive. I just don't want anybody telling me what I fool I was if I paid too much and I don't want anybody feeling like a fool if they buy something from me that I didn't pay a lot for. Make sense?

I wish I could roll myself out of bed early enough to hit garage sales, but alas, I stay up until nearly 3am on weekends reading! And I just can't give that quiet time up!
