Friday Finds...

Garage Sales, Yard Sales, Tag Sales...call them what you will...but they will be coming to an end soon here in Portland, Oregon...boo-hoo...
But today there were quite a few in my area, and in fact tomorrow there will be even more!
I am taking advantage before I have to bid them all adieu!
Here are just a few of my newly acquired treasures!


This watering can fountain was FREE...the lady wasn't sure how to make it work so she just gave it to us! Isn't it cute?


I got three of these faux grass plants...and this tin apple bucket too. The plants were 3/$2.00 and the bucket was actually overflowing with hazelnuts for only $1!


This "ancient" bread box was 25 cents!


I thought this old wooden shoe shine box would make some kind of neat holder...
how about my remotes?


This awesome metal basket actually rocks...no I mean like it swings back and forth $1.
Even the little spoon rest is new...well at least to me only 10 cents!



My picture doesn't really do this small stained glass window justice...you are looking through it to my atrium! Once again $1.00!


This small rod iron lamp is the perfect size for my kitchen counter...hello $1.00!

Well there are a few of my "Friday Finds"...Tomorrow I am going to check out my sister Diane's blog. After all...it is called "Saturday Finds"...hmmmm

Wow, Carrie! I want to come shop garage sales with you! Those are some incredible finds!! I adore that little stained glass window! Sure wish I could find stuff like this at those kind of prices here! I'd have to hunt for weeks to find just one of those little gems!

Hope your weekend is full of relaxation and fun!!

Shari said...

Oh my, Carrie, I sure do wish I could hit the sales in your neighborhood! Seems like most folks around here try to get antique mall prices out of their older things. Love that breadbox and the darling little window. Wow, you got some steals - enjoy!!

Great bargains!!! I haven't been to one garage sale this summer. Maybe I will get to some now that I am starting to get some strength back. Like I need more junk in my house...lol.

Enjoy your Saturday.

Diane said...

You sure did score, What great treasures. Good "Saturdayfinds" sis LOL!
I am not sure which is my favorite, maybe the stain glass window and that is most likely because it is green. OX Your Sis

Great finds at great prices!

Dear Carrie, I have had the most fun catching up on your blog posts. I was so happy to see Chelsea Ann! What a small world! Your $1.00 finds are spectacular, I covet the green window! Please forgive me (short term memory difficulties) if I have thanked you already for your block, but just in case, I will do it again! You and your sister are so kind to have participated. I love both blocks. Your block is so me outside my cutesy blog life! I don't let cute escape my small craft room. Thank you again for helping to celebrate such a special year for me! Elizabeth

Carrie,
I also love yard sales. That is on our list every weekend. I too am sad they will be ending soon.

Yesterday we bought a very old set of ski poles, made from bamboo and leather. Hubs checked on ebay just to see...they were selling for over $80. Of course, we just want them for a wall hanger in the basement.

You sure have gotten some great finds. Keep up the good work.

Angela said...

I'm starting to boo hoo also about the ending of my weekly Saturday Yard Sales..

You were blessed with some AMAZING items....Thanks for sharing. We have quite similar tastes.

Deborah said...

Grandma Nina said...

Such great deals. Good for you. I think if I had been at the same garage sales we would have been fighting over the same things. I also got some great deals at a garage sale yesterday. I should show the pictures. Our big flea market that takes place the first weekend of each month in the summer only has the last one in October. I haven't made it to any of them this summer, but hope to September 5.
