We can't help it. We're die hard.
We were pretty spoiled with Minneapolis a few weeks ago when it was sunny and warm.
However, the past two weekends Decorating co-captain Linda
and me have trudged it in the rain.
Downside: we get soaked. Upside: fantastic deals.
Last Saturday's haul:
Oh happy day!
Linda picked up this totally fantastic Hoosier for.........$40. Caaaaching!!
Complete with the enamelware top.
The gal selling it had even put the missing handle in the drawer.
It is dreamy and the score of the day.
The Eiffel Tower, my daughter MK scored for a buck.
You may notice a few things that I have already put up on my wall of frames.
The old black frame was .50 cents at a charity sale.
The completely fabulous vintage The Price Is Right game
with the awesome game cards was $1.00.
(The price was really right!)
For the cool 7-Up crate, I paid.......$3. It's awesome.
Linda uses the small vintage muffin tins to hold jewelry supplies.....3 for $3.
Sooo many things were .50 cents or a dollar. The rained helped with our bargaining.
The window screens and the old coal bucket were from 'free' piles. We love free.
They'll be used for something fabulous.
(the hosta, i bought)
We were pooped but happy we'd decided to brave the rain, it totally paid off.
The clouds parted like magic just as we were done.
The sun actually came out - no small feat as we've had days and days of clouds here.
We're glad the snow is gone, but we'd really love some warm sunny days!
(and more fabulous garage sales.)
