after getting up super early to drive ben to the airport yesterday, i hit all the garage sales i could to kill time while waiting for the shoppes to open. i zig zagged all over little rock following yard sale signs this way and that.
this was my first find at a church rummage sale. is aw the desk as i was driving by and literally raced to it after barely parking. i love the criss cross details of the legs. after i went in i found the little box. all quite a deal for $15. now just what color should i paint them? hmmmm....
i drove around to more but never found anything that peaked my interest for the right price. until i happened upon this.
clearly it needed work and the tag said "make me an offer".
so i asked if she would take $5 and we agreed upon $7. can you believe it?!
yeah i know its broken but its a clean break and i figure i can just glue it back in. i'm beginning to feel quite attached to it so it may never see the shoppe.
then i ran by the good ole habitat for humanity re-store. when i walked in they all but shoved a printer on me. they needed the floor space so all of their computer items were free. so i snagged a scanner printer combo much like my hp one i have now. we'll see how it works. if not i'll pass it on . hey its free!
i did come across some small find i felt i just couldn't leave there. i see a bookcase in the future for the bit of scalloped molding and how could i pass up that yellow cabinet door? and the small white one was just too cute.so this is what happens when everyone leaves me for the weekend. i did buy a new piece from lu at the shoppe and will be picking that up on monday when i go to get ben. see what happens when he leaves me out of the nascar races. boogity boogity boogity lets go thrifting!
