FAVORITE FINDS


I tried so hard to stay away from garage sales this weekend. Sales on large furniture pieces have been down at Urban Suburban in Pelham, for me anyway, and I really didn’t NEED to spend the money. However, there are times when the urge overwhelms me and self restraint flies right out the window. The Neighborhood Garage Sale in a Chapel Creek was one of those. I always find great things at this sale. I arrived late after dropping my oldest off at Girl Scouts. At 10AM, most things are picked over, but I did find a few gems.

A basket of one dozen vintage plastic eggs………………

 These are not the cheap, light weight ones either. They look very real and have a significant weight to them. I will be able to use these for photo shoots or just to spoof up my space.

5 tiny little silver plate serving utensils………………………

and a set of 8 cotton napkins that are SO darn cute………………..

I also walked away with an oil painting of a magnolia in a gorgeous gold frame that is very old for about 15 bucks and two copper lamps that need shades for 2.50. Not too shabby!
How about you? Did you find anything good this weekend?
