Vintage Finds

Well so far I have worked harder on my vacation than I do at work, and that is saying alot! So yesterday I finally finished the upstairs cleaning and purging. The car was so full of stuff I barely had room for my purse. So on the way back from Goodwill there is a new second hand shop......well, I had to stop. So here is what I got! As you look at the picture, think about what you think I payed.....and tell me which is your favorite.

Purchases, pumpkin chair, bread box, ladle, pitcher and laundry bag.

I could not pass on the chair, he looks so happy. He needed to be on my porch to greet you!

He even comes with a black crow. Wonder what the birds that land on my porch will think?

The double decker bread box is going to 1515 to the yellow/red/white/black kitchen. I think it will look great, what do you think? I love the flowers on the front.

Both drawers pull down, so I am sure I will find something to store in it.......non food that is!

I collect pitchers and this little green will fit right in. It has a little chip on the back lip, but I don't care it adds character! Besides I never pay much for them and I love to fill them with flowers out of my garden. This is staying at home in my green living room.

I adore this! It is going to 1515 where I have a huge laundry room. It will be up next week.

I always think of the person who did this, and all the work that when into it. I appreciate it so.

So here is the tally:
Pumpkin Chair   $28 I could of made one cheaper, but I will never get around to it.

Bread  Box        $15 I later found an older price tag that said $45, so glad I snapped it up

Ladle                   $3 Trying to find some that are not wood, the hard plastic are great to use, the last.

Pitcher                 $2 Yep, just 2 bucks!

Laundry bag        $5  I think it may be my favorite

Have a great weekend and maybe next week you will see some post with the items at 1515.

You found some fabulous treasures. Love that pumpkin chair. How cute is that. I so agree with all the work that went into the laundry bag, wonder why we don't do those things anymore. Great find on the bread box and pitcher too. Hugs, Marty

Love all the new finds! Really like the jack chair...maybe I need to show this to Rebecca so we can have one, too!
Doesn't it feel so good to purge so you can buy more????
My favorite feeling ever!

Hi Ann! Just wanted to let you know that you can post any collection you have! It doesn't have to be post cards. I went in and added that to the post after I read three comments that thought you had to do postcards.
I am going to do this every month on the 2nd Sunday.
