I've been doing alot of Thrifting lately and we even went to our
first Flea Market this past Sunday....
Don't you just love Spring!
Pottery Barn. I always love it when I find something on sale there. There were 2 of these minus the actual drink dispenser. But that didn't matter to me I knew I would find some way to use it.
As one piece it was a bit to tall to be my center piece, so I had to take it apart. But that worked out just fine I think. It fits perfectly over my glass candle holder, so I just added a bit of faux greenery at the base and wah lah, done!
It's still Spring afterall, so it works!
So now on to the Old Barn....
Not too far from us going down a main road we've seen this sign for a Barn Sale. We decided to find this Barn and see what it was all about. After going down a few back roads and dirt roads we finally found it.
A retired couple in their 60's took their out buildings and have filled them with Estate sale finds and stuff. I guess he actually buys what doesn't sell at Estate sales. We really had to do some "pickin" but I found a few goodies that I couldn't walk away from. These plates were some of what I found that day!
Can you imagine my excitement?
Can you guess what I paid for them?
There are 2 of each plate....
so 8 plates total!
I know.....Can you believe it? I almost feel like I should go back and give them more money....almost!
Is it possible that people that do this for a living don't look up what stuff are worth? I mean that's what we do when we find something that we think is worth something. My husband and I have found quite a few things lately that you would not believe what we paid compared to what they're actually worth!
Good for us I guess!
I'm so glad you stopped by today. I'd love to hear what you think of my recent finds. And I'd love to hear what great deals you've gotten lately! As always, Have a delightful day!
