Show and Tell Friday ~ Gorgeous Garage Sale Finds!

Look at these beautiful pieces John brought home from his
Saturday morning garage sale trip.

There was a man selling off inventory he had from his shop he just closed.
There were seven silver pieces (two are badly pitted and will probably be spray painted) and three dessert plates.

Care to guess what it set him back for all of these treasures?
$16.00!
Oh, and that included a Band of Brothers six disk DVD set for himself
It was a good day!

That is a great price on the Band of Brothers! He can go garage sale shopping for me next week! Gorgeous finds. I spray painted a badly pitted silver tray too. I use it all the time and call it "my shabby tray."

Can I go thrifting with you the next time!! Those silver pieces are too die for!!

Cindy (Letters From Midlife) said...

Those are great finds! For myself, I've set a goal to not attend one garage/yard sale this year. With all my downsizing and de-cluttering I am determined to not add anything. We'll see if I withstand the temptation or not...

Yes, I think those are llamas.......not positive however. They are so cute, arent' they! The owner was taking them for a walk and ended up...they were right behind us and we didn't even know it for a while. Well, I'm off to get ready for choir practise...wishing you blessings!
