Yard Sale find

April 30, 2010

Several blogs have a thrift store find of the week… but I had a yard sale find of the week last Friday. I’d already stopped and bought a Calvin and Hobbs book for the boys and three new tennis balls for Mei on the way back from dropping Will at school. Three quarters of an hour later I drove past after dropping Matt off and found an Ikea settee, 2 cd/dvd storeage holders (we already have one) and a small bedside cabinet, with 4 drawers on wheels ideal for under my work bench in my new studio space! I asked the lady to hold the items, drove home to fetch Geraint and we were back in 15 mins! Oh the grumbling about leaving his breakfast behind.

Sad old settee on its way out… (oops still in the front room its like a doctor’s office! But it is going out this weekend!

Boring I know but new drawers for me and so much nicer to store the little boxes of buttons and all the things that I seem to need to make jewelry!

We were thrilled with our finds… all for under $100 and there were 2 small pine side tables.
