This summer hasn't been the greatest for garage sale finds, but if this weekend were to be the last of the garage sale season, it would end on a happy note and mum and I would be satisfied. On our first two stops, we picked up three vintage folding chairs (in Cath Kidston colours) for $1 apiece, vintage linen napkins (perfect for entertaining), and a few bits and bobs...books and a ceramic sun for the garden.
The next stop was THE garage sale of all garage sales...and with all the proceeds going to our local hospital, who could resist getting a bargain and making a donation all at the same time? It was here that we picked up an antique tub bench (circa 1923) and folding tea cart (complete with removable tray), a few wicker baskets, a brass holder which has hands for clips, an old antique postcard book which I'll alter and finally, a box full of Italian stamps!!
Despite having a van filled to the brim with bargains and barely being able to see out the windows, this morning's Saturday garage sales were a success!
And, while I won't post pictures of everything just yet (because, quite frankly, everything looks a bit shabby) I will be sure to take before/after photos and post them a.s.a.p.
I hope you're all enjoying your weekend!
