First was this beautiful soup tureen... I thought that $5 was a fair price, so I didn't even negotiate. When the lady started wrapping it up for me I noticed a small chip on the bottom of the platter. As soon as the seller saw it she was ready to throw that part away. I said, "OH NO, don't throw it away, I'll still take it!" She said, "Well how about $3 instead?" Ok, ok, twist my arm!
Next I picked up a set of glass candle holders. I might use them as a base for something. Only $1.
A large glass jar (or whatever you want to call it) caught my eye. It's really BIG - the picture does not do it justice. She had it marked for $5 but decided to give it to me for $3 instead. I think it would be beautiful at Christmas time with ornaments in it.
As we stood there talking I said I was looking at a chair she had sitting there. It was only marked $1, but I wasn't sure if I wanted yet another project to add to my ever-growing pile (I STILL say I'm NOT a horder!!) She said, "take it... just take it!"
F-R-E-E!!!! I can handle that!
The chair has a small hole in the side, so I'll have to figure out what to do with that, but other than that it's in really good condition.
So for $7 at the garage sale I thought I did quite well.
I then headed over to one of my favorite Goodwill stores. I was about ready to leave the store (empty handed), when I spotted these canisters. PERFECT color for my newly painted kitchen. They were individually priced, for a total of $12.99, but when I took them to the counter the girl said they should have been priced as a set and gave me all three for $10!
This is the original label that was on one of the canisters.
That was it for today... $17, and some really great finds!
