This weeks Garaging Finds

As Laura mentioned, it was an incredibly HOT weekend here in Mesa, Arizona, but so were the deals. Here's what I picked up...I love ironstone. I only have a few pieces, but I scored at an estate sale this weekend. Because it was an estate sale, I had to pay a little higher price, but this one wasn't too bad. The bowl- dirt and all was $2.00, the tray .25 and the vintage monopoly game $2.00
Set of 2 metal stars, $5.00
This basket of white glass apples and pears was a splurge at $20.00- but there were a total of 14 and I had the perfect place for them- The basket will go in the next garage sale pile.
This custom made tote bag was $10.00- It will be my new church bag. It's fully lined and has lots of compartments inside. The chunky wood box it's sitting on is from the Land of Nod- It was $20- but this box sells new for over $100- can't wait to paint it up.
Set of 3 suitcases- $5.00, Another ironstone bowl for $4.00, Ironstone pitcher $5.00, Reproduction car $5.00.
Antique books, $1-$2 each (these are Mr. Right's passion), Red clock $3, enamelware pitcher 1.75, Candle holder $2.00, set of metal jacks $5.00, enamel coated iron pan $2 and vintage bingo markers .75.
I love wooden thread spools. I found these at the estate sale for $6.00- a little high, but I had to have them...
Do you see the CD/DVD holder in the back? At just $5.00, I have a great idea for it.
I picked up the accent table for $10.00- A definite craiglist item for $50
And finally, this neglected solid wood (so heavy) table was $10.00- can't wait to get this one painted up.
It was a great weekend for me, hope your was too. Love, Kelly
