OK, so here are a few of my finds from the excellent yard sale on Friday. (Church yard sales are the best!) I have decided that I can only show and tell a few of my finds-Otherwise you may think (completely erroneously, of course) that I am a bit of a pack rat, or worse, or hoarder! (Thanks Tiffany!) So, here are a few of my goodies. I will say that I am going to try my hardest to part with some of these and other rescued goods in the next few weeks and actually list some goods in my Etsy shop!
First stop, ric rac. Can I say that all of these were 5 cents (total)?! Yes, it is true. But, sad news. This is all they had.
Next stop, vintage linens. I picked up some handkerchiefs, cloth napkins, a pillowcase (future dress), and a monogrammed sheet. The monogram of course has nothing to do with anyone I know, it was just so beautiful... I couldn't let it sit alone any longer. (Sorry for the lack of a picture.)
Other stops included serious vintage craft supplies. ( This is where the hoarder rumors may begin. But remember, I will be listing some things in the shop, so I am not keeping it all! And, I already used some things. Those button things for making fabric covered buttons-awesome!)
A really neat wooden container.
And, the moment you've all been waiting for... The best find of all... A child's tool bench.
This was made by one of the church members who is in his 90s now. He made it for his son when he was a little boy. His son is in his 60's now. This tool bench has already had a good life and has been well loved, and it is once again the star of a show. It is already the focal point in our playroom and is stocked with many important tools for very important jobs. Like duct taping shovels together, wrapping scotch tape around pencil sharpeners so shavings don't escape, hammering chalk so it causes serious respiratory damage, making school buses out of scrap wood, etc. etc. Good times!
Aren't yard sales the best?
