Recent garage sale finds were really awesome. I love buying vintage and old “junk” for resale, to keep, and to make things. The bag of old metal and glass doorknobs was $10 for the entire bag. What a great deal!
I found these old tubs on the stand at a recent sale for $5.00!! Crazy, I know! Perfect for flowers or in our case my son will be using them at his barn wedding for bottles of water in ice.
I love old quilts! Sometimes I find perfect ones, but they are really expensive. I like to collect “cutter” quilts, which are ones that are torn and tattered and really can’t be used for anything other than craft projects. I have few in my DIY section of the blog
Most I find are $2 to $5 each and are quite lovely other than they are torn. This was a fun one that I bought that has names all over it and is dated Christmas 1940. Can you imagine the stories it could tell?
This is my favorite recent find. This beautiful armoire is in perfect condition. It’s a little too “pretty” for our vintage log cabin, but is great for the bedroom. I couldn’t pass it up for $100.
