Stop by and see what fabulous treasures everyone has found this weekend.
So far this weekend I was not very lucky with garage sales. They usually start on Thursday around here. I had only bought the two items from my earlier post at a thrift store. Today I decided to try a couple of yard sales listed on Craigslist. I was pretty sure by the address of one, that I had been there before. I was so excited to see it was the one I had thought it was. I remember getting some of my favorite pieces at this sale and since the other two were busts, I was hopping to score some fab finds. A lot of vintage dressers, chairs, some dishware and an antique sofa. I was starting to lose hope when I spotted a piece, a rusty metal cake stand. It has a wonderful lace trim and just the right amount of rust for me!! WOO HOO! I asked the daughter of the gal if she had anymore pieces like this one and she said YES, she would grab it. Out of the house she comes with another cake stand! I asked the price, counter offered and she took my offer!! I have to tell you, I got a great deal on them! (Can you tell they are my favorite) Yes I am doing the HAPPY DANCE!! I have the perfect delicately etched plates to go on top! I see a garden tablescape with these :) and possibly a cloche with one :)
Here is a close up of the rusty patina and lacey border. YEAH!!
I also picked up a pair of small black shutters and a vintage towel drying rack. The rack was only .50 cents.
Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. Now I'm off to go strip (with my new heat gun) and paint a few pieces!
