I had looked at the newspaper the night before and knew there weren't going to be a lot of sales, but I always find sales on the way to sales. So, I got my hubby up and made sure he had money in his pocket and away we went.
We stumbled across a few good ones. I got these apothecary jars for 50 cents (for both of them ... yeah, I know ;).
Then I got this tall glass vase at the same sale for another 50 cents (pretty good deal, huh?). I threw out all the "stuff" that was in it. It was some kind of potpourri that had definitely lost its scent.
At another sale, I came across this adorable metal wall pocket. It was already painted and chippy. I asked her how much and she said "oh, how about 50 cents?" I don't know where it will go, but I'm sure I'll find a home.
My hubby wanted these two iron birds. Got 'em for $3. We're obsessed with birds, bird feeders and bird baths. Here they are on a railing of our deck. I hope the real birds aren't afraid of them.
Then we went to a moving sale where they wanted $35 for this bench, but we bargained with her for $25. Isn't it cute? It came with this cushion and it has storage inside. LOVE IT!!! It now has a happy home on my deck.
Lastly, we went to an auction on Thursday night and I got this cute wicker chair for $10!!! I threw a piece of fabric I had in my craft closet over the cushion that came with it because it looked awful. I love how the paint is kinda chipped off in spots.
