My garage sale finds

I did pretty good this weekend.
Went to a few rummage sales and garage sales, this is what I came up with.
I love these coasters. I have some state trays but not Florida. I'm on the hunt now.

1953 Joy of Cooking.
The year I was born so I might be keeping this one.
I always love to find the folding rulers.

I liked the color of this jewelry box.
I thought this little lamp was unusual.
The cowboy trivet will be going to Montana.

I liked the inside of the jewelry box.
It had a few trinkets inside.

My favorite!
An old manicure set.
I love the bottles and they are glass.

Old garland with lights.
This is from a church rummage sale so I trusted them when it said on the package it works.
After all it's a church!

A 2 tier wire basket that's got a little bit of rust on it and that's the way I like it.
An old shabby frame.
I love vintage bird prints and I liked the frame to the bunny print, I might shabby the frame and take out the bunnies

An old enamel ladle.
See it in the background.

Can someone please tell me what this thing is?
I like galvanized things.

Hope you are having a nice Sunday.
We are, it's finally getting a little cooler here in Central Florida.
Hugs to all!

Linda said...

Lots of fun items! I love the wire basket and measuring stick, especially! Don't know what the galvanized thingie is...looks like some sort of scoop with strainer...

Hi Sweet Friend!
Looks like you had a mother load of the treasure hunting! On that note, if you email me at, I'll give you an inside scoop about my KY trip.
You're treasures are just what i like by the way! Love, love, love!
talk with you later,

Wow - you got some great stuff! I never find anything good when I go garage saleing - I just don't have the eye, I guess. Looks like you do, though!

Terry said...

I love to go to garage sales too. The hunt is the fun part. The galvanized thing you were asking about is a grain scoop. That's a nice treasure. Terry

Terry said...

Well maybe not for grain, but for larger animal feed items like what we used to call 'cake' on the farm. It is in large pellet form. Terry
