Confession time....I LOVE garage sales! Thankfully, my good friend Char also loves them and we often go together. We hit our first sales of the season last weekend and my favourite finds of the day were these two vintage Pyrex princess bowls. I picked up the orange one for $2 and the other was FREE. I love them both and they are the start of what I hope will some day be a fun collection.
I stopped at a few sales this past Sunday as I made my way across the city en route to my sister's house. Sadly, no Pyrex was to be seen but I did find this old roll top bread box for $1. I'm not sure what I will do with it yet, and whether I will even use it for it's intended purpose. I saw a picture on the internet where someone hung it upside down and used it as a shelf. I was also thinking it might be a good cubby for the bills and papers that often accumulate on the kitchen counter. Anyways, both my husband and son said it's "junk" but I really like it. Jake had a friend over who agreed with me it's kind of funky.
I also picked up these books in a FREE box at one sale. All are books I've always planned to read. I'll add them to the 50 plus that are currently stacked up beside my night table, many bought at the sales last year.
So...what do you think? Are garage sale finds funky or junky? Do you believe that one man's garbage is another man's treasure? Or you like my guys who think one man's garbage is just garbage. Haha!
