Hi everyone! Today I’ll be sharing with you the rest of my finds from last week. But I hope you’ll join me again next week for some wonderful vintage finds I bought while visiting my husband’s family in Pittsburgh. As the fifth of six siblings, he’s the only one to move away from that area. So Grandma, PapPap, and all of the aunts and uncles and cousins from my husband’s side of the family live in the Pittsburgh area. I always enjoy shopping in that part of the country and am excited to show you what I discovered while thrifting and flea marketing. But now it’s time to take a look at today’s vintage finds.
I think I caught the owner of this little side table putting it out to the curb for the garbage. Yes, she was having a garage sale, so when I asked her how much, she said, “$1.00, but it needs a little work.” It’s actually quite sturdy, but the top needs some TLC. I’ll be painting it sometime in the near future (value: $35.00 once painted). Take a look at a recently painted side table.
Have you ever stumbled upon one of those sales where everything you see is so amazing and priced so well you want to buy it all. I found this stack of about twelve (I haven’t even counted them yet!) white shutters, each marked $1.00. Of course, I said I’ll take them all (value: $10-12.00 each). I gifted two of them to Constant Companion, Nancy for her birthday. Yes, she was very pleased.
Final Find: Street signs, like this one, make great decorations for teen bedrooms and college dorm rooms (cost: $2.00, value: $35-40.00). I never have trouble selling them. Are there things like this that you always buy because you know you’ll be able to sell them fairly easily?
