This Weeks Garaging Find!

Great finds this weekend! Here's a peek...Let's take a look at prices:
This Eiffel Tower is over 2 1/2 feet tall and was just $5.00, The oval frames were 1.00 each.
This french style nightstand was $10.00 and the wreath 1.00
Another 1.00 frame and 1.00 wreath. A vintage volkswagon metal car .50, books .50, teak tray 2.00.
And just in case you're not sick of my cupboard door projects, I picked up 4 cherry wood doors for $5.00!
And this was 1.00- I say "This" because I don't know what it is. I thought it was a garbage can, but when I opened it, there's a removable circular metal piece- maybe so you could make a fire in it and cook up some steaks???? It has a sticker for $21.99 on it, so it must be something cool- If you know what it is, I'd love for you to leave me a comment. What'd you find this weekend? Love, Kelly

  1. If the removable metal piece has 2-3 little cutouts on the side, it's probably an ice bucket. That's what it looks like on the outside.

  2. The bucket is probably for removing hot ash from a fireplace. Once cool, it can be lifted from the bucket and thrown away.

  3. The ?white desk blotter with diamonds and lace is making it difficult to read the writing in your blog.

  5. Here is what I think... it's a pot for tamales. You fill the bottom with water, place the metal base on top and that's where the tamales will be placed to be steamed cooked! Why don't you try making some before you sell it? ;D

  6. It is definitely a pot for tamales, called a "tamalero". I'm married to a Mexican and we have the exact same one!

  9. In India, almost all houses have at least 2-3 of these (in last pic). We call it DRUM and store wheat flour, uncooked rice and some store water is this. My mum has 1 bigger version of this and 3 in same size. <3

  12. You guys are brilliant- it definitely is a tamale cooker, now that you told me and I googled it. The really great part is that we host a street Tamale party on Christmas Eve Eve and I need something to steam the tamales! This is perfect!

    Nancy: We do the same route every weekend, consistency pays off.
