You found some good stuff~ I bet the watering can will be really cute repainted!

Terra said...

You are a great bargain hunter and then pass some of treasures along to others, in your booth. I am amazed at what you found for $1. The watering can is very pretty.

Nice Haul ~ thats a Chaffing Dish, it would have held a glass dish in that shape with a lid & the raised center part would have held a warming candle.... I think it would look wonderful with a Beautiful Fern.... I think My Daughters are taking me to a Flea Market on Saturday, or at least I suggested that they Do~ will be the first flea or sale for the Season.... Off to clean, I've been putting cleaning off, since I seem to want to spend an Enormous amount of time on the Computer. Plus, I have already had My Nap!
Talk later xox

NanaDiana said...

WoooHooo...You did good! Yep- that's a chafing dish...I have a similar one...and use it when we have big parties. You really got a lot of good stuff, I think. The best part is that you can GET OUT and get stuff! THAT is the wonderful part of it all! xxoo Diana

I can hardly wait to go to my first garage sale of the season! I've been chomping on the bit to hit some up:) You made a great haul. That's a chafing dish holder, I see Diana beat me to it, though! I had a really pretty one like yours, but I gave it to my sister before we moved. Oh, well, at least it found a happy home!! Have a great weekend!

From what you have shared with us, you should do well in your booth. Loved all those interesting things.

Oh I loved all the flowers, and the stuff you got at the yard sale is neat. I haven't been to any lately, missed the one I always love to attend at the local Catholic Church, had hubby with me, and he said we don't need anything..He doesn't understand it is the hunt, not the purchase.

Your blog is always amazing!
