While in the area on other business, I drove through West Stockbridge (about 45 minutes from Albany) and took a few photos. Of course I hit a couple of garage sales as I passed through. The first one was at a gorgeous, and I mean gorgeous, red barn. Strung out all along the side of the road and manned by some elderly folks, it was quite promising. However, the best part of the stop ended up being the chance to take some photos of the barn. The one item I purchased, an oblong wooden tray, looks great in the center of my kitchen table. To see how I decorated with it, click here.
I made several purchases at the second sale, also manned by several elderly people (always a good sign!).
Even though it’s kinda ripped up, I really liked this cute little spice cannister. I love the mustardy color and the vintage look ($1).
I thought this was really interesting–it’s like a knife box, but for holding a letter opener and a pair of scissors. You hang it on the wall and slide the opener and scissors in the slots ($1). On sale at my Etsy store here.
I think this simple, ceramic table frame will come in hand some day, and for another $1, I couldn’t pass it up. It’s very Lenox-like.
This isn’t the best shot, but I think you can make out the shelves in front of the pallet, right? It’s black and was on sale for $1!! The very bottom shelf needs some glue and some support, but other than that, it’s perfect. Not sure what I’m going to do with it…I’m sure I’ll come up with something!
Once I arrived in Stockbridge I couldn’t resist photographing some of the lovely old buildings.
I love the old white churches scattered throughout New England, don’t you?
Bye for now,
