I’ve told you before about the junk sale I go to whenever it’s open. Typically they host a big clean-out garage sale in February, a sale in the spring, one in October, and a more Christmasy one in November. I go every time if I possibly can. The gals host my favorite kind of sales…decent prices and things that aren’t in mint condition. I like my antiques with some love spots (dings or dents) in them. I like them to look like some previously loved them…
This was the sale that was more Christmasy. I went on Sunday. Many people rush to go on Saturday when they open but I’ve told you…I hate crowds. I like it when there is room to see the items…and mostly, I don’t NEED anything. It’s all just wants and going the day after the big rush reminds me of that.
The last time I told you about the sale, I showed you pictures and then had you guess what I bought. Let’s do that again. I really splurged this time. I bought five things. Four are shown in the pictures. The fifth thing was a last-minute grab.
When I got there they were really busy loading out furniture. Someone bought a dresser and buffet they were loading out and someone else had two pieces of furniture too. That left things a little haphazard. To move the dresser they had put all of these goodies on this bench. It made it a bit challenging to see everything but I wasn’t interested in the couch so it was all good.
I love the spice cabinets. I wanted one for years. Then my blog reader and friend Ila gave me one she had. I treasure it and don’t look for spice cabinets anymore.
This big beauty was still there from the last sale. Oh, I love this and thought again about buying it. The cabinet is really what I’m looking for but the varnish on it isn’t the best. I debated about if I wanted to buy it anyway. If my husband were still alive I would buy it in a heartbeat and we’d fix it up together. I’m not so confident about my fixing-up skills now that I’m on my own. Oh, I love it!!
There were cabinets galore. I really don’t think I want a painted one though.
Even though there were quite a few Christmas things, the pictures I took really didn’t have many things…maybe because I was looking at all of the non-Christmas stuff. HA!
I had hoped to look for suitcases. I want a stack of them in my living room but my friend Gloria was there before me so the good ones were all picked over.
I love furniture so the majority of my pictures show off furniture pieces.
As I said…you never quite know what will be here. Musical instruments anyone?
This marble-topped dresser is a beauty. If I was looking for that big of a dresser I’d snatch it up in a heartbeat.
Here is a hand-stitched piece…and eye spy a red chair!! I have a thing for red chairs. But, do I need another, likely not.
More wonderful cabinets…more wonderful dressers.
Oh my….so many good things. It’s hard to pick and choose.
As for what I bought… One thing isn’t shown in any pictures so you only have to guess four things. I’ll give you three clues.
Two things I bought immediately and took them home with me.
Two things I took measurements of and came back and picked up.
I had to call and ask a family member for help.
So friends…what did I buy?
