This past week there were not nearly as many garage sales as last week, but still a decent number. I’m sad to say that after spending a few hours going around, stopping at nearly all of them, I didn’t find anything that REALLY called my name. There was one antique plate for $3 that I really liked, or the old Coco-Cola crate for $10, but they just didn’t feel ‘right’. So, I came home empty handed. But, that doesn’t mean that I don’t have anything to share with you guys today. Here are a few more of my second-hand finds from the past few weeks.
I found a ravioli cutter. I don’t know what my obsession is with ravioli cutters, since I have never made homemade ravioli, but I figure one day I will, and I will be prepared! I think this set me back a whole 25¢.
I’ve wanted one of these for a while already. An insulated coffee butler. Now, I can make myself coffee, go out to the deck & enjoy without having to go back in for that second cup. 😉 Or, when I’m at home by myself, my coffee will still be hot (and great tasting) hours later. So far, I’ve only tested as far as 3 hours, but it’s still hot! It was also clean on the inside, which was important to me, but I did also clean it by filling it with hot water and a dishwasher detergent tablet. Nice & shiny and it only cost me 50¢!
No, not the cookies, silly. Those are my gluten free chocolate chip cookies that I baked the other day. what I got for 80¢ was the melamine bowl, I love that colour of blue.
This here is actually two finds. The bottom crate I got for $4 at the thrift store, and the top tub I got for $3 at a garage sale. Now, I haven’t done my outdoor planting yet, but I picture these two working together, somehow. When I figure it out (and it fills out a little), I will be sure to post a picture and give you an update. Any suggestions? I’d love to plant only edible things this year, but I love flowers, so maybe this will be my flower splurge.
