My wonderful finds

Okay I am going to make a confession here ,I am a garage sale,junk store junkie.I stop at every garage sale that I come upon and I had rather shop at a junk store than Wal Mart.I love to find little treasures from others that are cheap.It is so much fun to get out and see what you can find,it is like a treasure hunt to me.Sometimes I come back empty handed,but most times I do find one or two things I just can not turn down.Garage sales can be one of the most relaxing things you do,you pretty much know you are not going to spend a lot,you are going to find something wonderful to look at or that you can use in the kitchen,etc.You can buy a old chair or stool and go home redo it and have a beautiful piece for your home. Wire Tea pot,I really like wire items to decorate
with in the kitchen.I use a big wire basket to
hold my candles.

Another great wire basket it cost me $1.00
I also love wall tins to decorate with,have not
decided where these will hang yet but I just feel
in love with the old bicycles.

Another $1.00 find a great little beaded
candle holder,and I burn a lot of candles.

This was just something that made me smile,
so I bought it to set on the kitchen table,being I am
a doll lover she was a must but,she only cost
me $2.oo
I think everyone should spend a day on garage sales or visiting the local junk,second hand store.You can not imagine the fun you will have if you have never done this before.Hope you will take that little shopping day soon and have a fun time.

Thanks for visiting Shore's End and for your kind, wise words. I enjoyed this post, as I too am a bargain junkie. I was just posting about my favorite Goodwill finds. Someday I would love to run one of those old packed full junk shops. : )

Thank you for posting a link to the Great Christmas Giveaway.

I love taking a day off from my creative space to go out looking for some great vintage finds. It's so much fun and is really a creative day all it's own.

Love the wire tea pot and basket. Hey, the bike on top right is the one I got Terry for Christmas three years ago! You should see him ride it.
