Before I share this weeks treasures, I have to tell you about what my daughter and I did yesterday.
We went to our first storage unit auction! It was so fun. We are both addicted to Storage Wars on A&E.
When I was looking on Craigslist this weekend for Estate Sales, I found a post for a storage unit auction close by. I called her and we decided we had to go. It was scheduled to start at 10:00 am Monday and we were there by 9:30, along with about 20 other cars. We promised each other not to bid, this was a chance to observe and learn. We should have bid. They auctioned off 8 units and the most expensive one went for $180 and the one with the most furniture went for $30. It had 2 french provencial dressers and numerous other pieces that we could not tell for sure what they were. If that was all there was, we would have jumped on it, but it was a 10ft x 30ft unit with boxes piled to the ceiling. We just didn't have a plan to get everything out of there. But, now that we know they go for reasonable prices in Kansas, we are making plans for the next one.
Now onto my thrifty treasures.
I bought this beautiful little antique rocker with a carved back for $7.50 from another dealer's closeout sale.
It's going to get a beautiful makeover.
This old (1960's) Winnie the Pooh book and very old interlock letters came from an Estate Sale that had to be 95 degrees inside. It was miserable, so I didn't stay long, but did grab these two things before I fainted.
This cute yellow pitcher and sweet little bust came from a Goodwill I don't normally get to.
I think they are both so sweet.
I love this little poodle I found at an Estate Sale.
And last but not least, my favorite little helper is displaying one of two
Couroc plates I found at the same sale. (Isn't he doing a great job?)
Thanks for looking and I can't wait to read your comments!
