Garage sale find Friday

It was another slow but successful garage sale weekend here in the Pacific Northwest. Since it's a craft blog I won't tell you about the prestine American Girl doll I got for $8 (!!!!), but I will tell you about these lovely gems that I picked up to go around the house.

This beautiful lamp for a mere $2. Isn't it great in my front window?
And this cool old tool box for only 50 cents and this antique glass jug for only $1
I got these two ball jars for $1, and think they make a great match for my wreath stand that I bought last year at a garage sale for $1.
Not a shabby weekend haul for only $4.50! Did you find anything fun this weekend?

Linking up at this great site

I am totally envious of the toolbox - I have a thing for toolboxes. The other finds are great too!

That is a great tool box! It is a good patio pieace. I think I would put a couple small terra cotta pots with geranimus or pansies. But spray a protective varnish coat to keep the water from damageing it. Have a good day...Julian

Great finds! We didn't hit any sales this weekend, but may head out to the big flea market next weekend!

Debbie, sorry about that. Done and Done...I love finding other garage salers out there! I am addicted to them! Such great stuff to be had! I've even been known to schedule vacations and family events (ie the birth of my third son) around them! :)

I am love with your old tool tote box! What a buy...in fact everything is great. I was telling Sue that my weekend of yard saling and flea markets was a total bust. Very unusual for me. Have a super great week.
