Welcome to another week of Garage Sale Finds Friday where I share with you some of my favorite garage sale finds of the week.
This week, I scored big time on some vintage awesomeness.
I hit several barn sales and had so much fun digging for treasures!
First up, I found this vintage Schwinn bike. It's rusty, but it's awesome!
Funny thing, this week everything seemed to come in 2's.
I found another vintage Schwinn bike just like it, which is how I was able to negotiate this bike down to just $5! It's pretty rad don't you think?
I walked past this old Pepsi crate twice and was about to leave when I spotted it hiding under a table.
$2 is all it took to get this big guy home.
I've always been partial to vintage license plates.
I sorted through a huge pile to find these older plates.
The best find was the '57 Washington plate.
At $1 a piece, I couldn't pass them up!
I was so excited when I saw this pendant light for sale.
Brand new with the tags on it!
It reminds me of something out of the Restoration Hardware catalog don't you think?
Guess how much I paid for this bad boy?
$2, that's it!
Along the side of the road, this gentleman had lined up half a dozen chairs.
This chair in particular spoke to me.
It was sturdy and had really cool age to it already.
I noticed later that the chair's seat had been mended with a strip of wood.
I made that strip just a little less obvious by painting a strip of black.
Now it looks like it was totally meant to be that way.
I call it my racing stripe chair.
I bought this vintage screen door from the same garage sale as the racing stripe chair.
I saw it and just had to have it.
How often do you see screen doors at garage sales?
Well, this day, I actually saw two of them!
See, I told you everything came in two's that day.
This screen door was in the process of being re-screened (I did the bulk of the work re-screening it), but that new screen made all the difference. The whole time I re-screened the door I sang Taylor Swift's song "Our Song". Yep, the sound of a screen door slamming just screams long slow summer days for me.
I picked up the screen door and the chair for $15.
