Garage sale finds

It's been a little while since I have posted my garage sale finds, but don't worry, it doesn't mean I haven't been searching nearly every week for some amazing deals. I thought I would share with you what I found this weekend.

Isn't this HUGE beaker cool? My engineer hubby came home and told me it was called something else but for the life of me I don't remember (or don't care, not sure which!). I think it would be really cool filled with marbles or something. For $1 I couldn't pass it up.
I also picked up this olive oil decanter, but I have plans to use it as a liquid soap dispenser by my sink. Not bad for 50 cents.
I think this little stainless steel dish is cool. Maybe as a base to some crafty thing I am working on, or a little candy dish. The possibilites are endless. I got that beauty in the free box so it makes it even better!

And finally I found these old rice sacks. I got 4 of them for $1.50. Wouldn't they make cool pillow covers? Or a fun little dress.

My son saw these in the pottery barn teen catalog just this past week. He really thought they were pretty cool. I picked up this similar poseable lamp for $7. Much better than the $50 PB wanted!

I love this wire tray that I got for a quarter. I also picked up most of the jars in the basket today at a price of 5 for $1. I think the jars are cool in the tray, but not sure if that will be the way this will end up being used.

I've been really wanting a coca cola tray for awhile now. I actually saw about 4 of these today, but only picked up one because I'm not sure how I am going to use them. They wanted $12 for it, but I paid only $7. Bargaining is the best part of garage saleing don't you think? The lady said that the wire racks in there are for a spice rack. No thank you...they will be coming out this week.

Are you ready for this find? A vintage chenille queen size bedspread for {drum roll please} $1. I'm pretty sure I am going to end up cutting it up and using it for fabric (there are a few snags), but I have never seen vintage chenille offered for so little before that I had to snag it right up!
And those are my finds this weekend.

I love that wire basket and, of course, the chenille bedspread will be great to use for future projects too.

Your blog, which I am so grateful that I found this week while "blog surfing", inspired me to hit garage sales today. I am happy to tell you that I picked up some great clothes for myself.
