This weeks Garaging Finds

Another great weekend of trash collecting! I'll be giving an update on my sale on Wednesday at The Big Challenge. Here's what I found...I love this jar with the fleur de lis metal finial- It was new in the box for $3.50, the vernon wear salt shaker, pyrex refridgerator container, fenton candy dish and antique hats (with original hat box) were part of a charity sale for the cancer society- They only wanted a couple of bucks for everything- or maybe $5 they said. They were thrilled when I gave them a $10- and I was thrilled with my finds.

I love the lines of this little antique side table. It was $10.00. The pottery barn floating candles were $1 per box.
This little rocking horse is in perfect condition. When you press it's ears, it makes galloping sounds and it's tail moves. For $5 it will make a great resale item.
Another French nightstand!!!! I think this one's for me. It was only $5, but will take a lot of work to sand off the layer of textured paint. The "Memories" blocks were new in the box for $1. The jumbo letters were $1 each and the pink Bumbo was $5- another great resale item.
Here's more of my $10 purchase from the charity sale- two rolls of painter's tape ( I can never have enough of this) and a bag of canning lids and seals (I'm a big summer jam maker)
Here's my favorite Friday finds that were put in my Home Decor sale. This antique desk was just $40.00 and has already been sold (I'll let you know how much on Wednesday at The Big Challenge)
This kidkraft retro kitchen was also $40.00- I've got someone coming tonight to pick her up!
Hope your weekend was just as fun. Love Kelly
