Estate Sale and Freebies!


It's been awhile since I've gone to an estate sale, but this one was not to be missed! Usually I look for furniture when I'm at one of these, but since my garage is full already I decided to pick up only unique items that had an industrial edge....lucky me! This house had some great finds!!! See that brown striped bag?...first, I love the canvas bag, but inside was panels of vintage awning material! Orange and cream...summer colors! They may end up around our future pergola near the pool. It'll look great when all the orange daylilies come into bloom out there.


Favorite Find!!! The survey markers!! I love anything with numbers and these are great! AND that tripod survey instrument base!! Wow! Lamp base? Table base? What shall I do with it??


I also had a couple of spotters (friends) call me this week with the location of free stuff on the side of the road! They know me well!  Thanks Ladies, you know who you are!!


Look at this glider!! Beautiful! All the patio furniture will have to be stored until spring, but how cute is this set going to look with new cushions??!!


This vintage armoire has it's original casters. It's going to get a fresh coat of paint, maybe some decoupage, and it will make it's way up to our family's 1950's beach cottage, which is going to be remodeled this spring...you'll get to follow along when that starts.


Inside it even has its original tie holder. Fun!



Hope you are having a great weekend!

Enjoy!
