Saturday Finds 7/26/14

I had the Saturday off so Chad agreed to spend the day with me.  We ventured to Ault, Colorado.  There were several antique shops and a nice little cafe and ate some bacon.  Oink.

I found this Scotch Tape display in the back yard of one of the shops for $5. I'm torn on whether to leave it in the kitchen, it takes up a lot of counter space, or take it to my craft room and actually use it for tape and ribbon.


On the way home we pulled over to see what was going on at a garage sale... The tin trashcan had make offer so I did and snagged it for $3.  It was the ladies great grandfathers.  I won't resale this one.  It's in my office.

Later that afternoon Chad needed to go home to watch golf and I needed wanted to go junk some more. I had to make a u-turn when I saw a mess of crates at a sale in a random parking lot and I bought them all.  Yeah.  All.

They are from a factory in South Dakota that was closing and these were headed to the dump.

Today I cleaned the house and relaxed a bit.  I couldn't push my luck.  Yesterday was too awesome.  Have a fantastic week!
