This weekend was tag-sale overload. I had 10 on my list starting out, but there were so many signs that I just kept driving around until shortly before noon (with a Home Depot trip in the middle there). Check out my haul!
I spent a record amount of $30!
So here’s the breakdown:
Vintage luggage rack. $15
She needs a little love as you can see. The bottom of the legs need a little repair and it could use some fun ribbon to top it off. I think it’ll start off as a a luggage rack as intended, but who knows what the future holds. She could end up as a cute little bench or cat bed (yup, crazy cat lady here).
Antique side table: $10
After I exterminated all the spiders off/out of this and cleaned it up, it really needs no repairs. Apparently I am able to buy items that don’t need love and repair, its just a rare occurrence. Not sure where this will end up or if I’ll make a project out of it yet, but it’s currently hanging out on the wall below the stairs. Aren’t those some sexy legs?
Art Deco lamp: $3
Complete with period wiring. This came from a neighbor down the street, and I was beyond overjoyed when I asked the price. Even though I would have paid his initial asking price of $5, I was able to talk him down to $3. That’s part of the fun of tag-sales! But anyway, the lamp. I heart the detail on the base! I kind of have a love affair with Art Deco. Obviously it needs a new coat of paint and a new cord, but sounds like a quicky project to me (totally just jinxed myself).
Not pictured tag sale steals are a cast iron skillet for Hubby for $1, and a organizing bin for screws or whatnot that came with pegboard pieces inside for another $1.
Altogether, I’d say it was a very successful weekend. Did you bring home any treasures?
