Weekend Treasures

19 Sep

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?
