I hadn't been to many garage sales if any for awhile and then the past 2 weekends we ventured out again. And good thing we did because I found 2 more chairs for my kitchen AND they were only $1.50 each! Along with the other 2 I found before, I will sand them and paint them and replace the ones that are currently falling apart in my kitchen.
This one is about as sturdy as they come and is marked G.C.U.R. Indiana on the back, but after searching online, I didn't find anything about what they meant.Chair number 2 is slightly more beat up, but has more details and carvings that sets it apart. I'm loving how similar, but totally different in appearances the chairs are that I have been coming across for the kitchen. I knew I wouldn't find a set of 4 matching chairs so 4 mismatched chairs all painted the same color is what I set out to find and I'm so happy with the outcome.This side table I found for $8 and all it needs is some paint. I think I'm going to go with black and use it in my living room next to the couch.THIS is what you call a GREAT find and it isn't even for me. I already have a KitchenAid stand mixer, but for $20 (when they retail for $350) you can't pass it up. And I knew that neither my mom or sister have one. All the attachments were even included. This one is a professional series that actually came out of a restaurant that closed.I found these 2 necklaces for $1 a piece.This whole bag of greeting cards was 25 cents. There are probably 40 cards totally and cover the whole range of greeting card topics. That just over a penny/card. Usually I spend $2-3 for a card. This will last me awhile!I love picking up old cook books at yard sales. This has some good combinations that I'm excited to try. I have marked a few that sound really good. Old cook books sometimes are more entertaining to flip through than use. This one is both. Quite a few of the recipes call for MSG as an ingredient!!! I think I'll be substituting that one!75 cents for an assortment of sewing notions, ribbons and elastic.50 cents for an interesting old jar that actually has a glass lid. Branded Improved Gem. Made in Canada.This great picnic basket cost me $5 and I have already used it a few times to carry food around. I love it! So spacious.My neighbor had a yard sale and we scored some GREAT books for 10-25 cents each. Thanks, Cindy! :)Magnolia is on a puzzle kick. We found 2 for 25 cents each.Then we found 4 more for 25 cents each.We have a couple of the Preschool versions of these Brain Quest cards. Now we are set for elementary school. For $1 each.
