Well, I had another great day garage sale-ing with my pal Char. We went to a community garage sale near our office and I think we must have visited at least 20 houses. Considering that, I think I was pretty selective and my junk pile isn't too large this week.
My two favourite items of the day are:
The Cocso retro step chair: I wasn't sure about this until Char showed me it folds and suggested it would be good in the garage. SOLD! for $2. I found some ads online for Cosco stools dating back to 1950. I figure this one with the brown has to be from the 1970s.
Vintage Pyrex 2 qt casserole with lid: This was a promotional item that Corelle put out in 1959 and the pattern appears to be called Golden Tulip according to Pyrex Love. This is my first piece with a lid and might just be my fave so far. $2.
Other Misc. items: Ikea magnet board, which I plan to jazz up with some fabric ($1), baton (25 cents), new teeny tiny Tupperware containers ($1), Carafe (50 cents), 4 wood hangers ($1), NIB portable grill ($2), 2 plants pots ($1), 2 metal planters ($2), burlap ($1), cookie jar ($1).
And one other item to show you...my "splurge" of the day. A desk for my nephew Xavier who is turning 5 in July and off to Kindergarten in September. My sister had asked me to keep an eye out for a small desk and this one was perfect at $10. Char and I did see a wood desk of the same size at another sale later in the day for $40.
And here's our future scholar.
OK, that was a loooong post....thanks for stopping in! I'm linking up to Rhoda's TTT and Linda's NTT!
