There were not very many yard sales this past weekend. But two were all I needed to find those items I didn’t know I needed! Ha, ha. At my very first stop, I found a set of baby blue/teal vintage Samsonite luggage. It was the perfect color, condition, and price. At first, due to the sake of storage space, I only purchased the smallest case for $2.
Then after walking around the sale, I felt bad. I couldn’t split them up. I couldn’t just tear the set apart. They had experienced many travels together. Who was I to end their journey? LOLs. So I offered the seller $3 for the largest case, and she gladly accepted my offer! So for a total of $5 I got two pieces of luggage!
There are so many things you can do with old suitcases. I use them for photo props, and they can also serve as great interior decorator pieces. Have you ever been on Pinterest? I sure hope so! If not, please go to www.pinterest.com. Just be prepared for an inspiration overload!
My next stop was at an estate sale. Now, normally an estate sale’s prices are way too high. This sale was done by the family itself, not a company. So the prices were basically yard sale worthy. In the garage, I noticed this little metal stool, covered in cobwebs, weighted down with a stack of National Geographic magazines.
Now, it may not look like much to some…but I thought it had so much potentional. It actually wasn’t priced for the sale, but I asked anyway. The owner said, “Give me $2.” I was very pleased. I think it is a beautiful little $2 stool.
It only has about three or four layers of paint on it! I luv it just as it is with its multi-layered paint job. Well, this week’s vintage treasure blog was brought to you by the color teal! Thanks again for always taking a look. I hope you enjoy seeing my vintage finds as much as I do pickin’ them. Have a great week!
