Two hand made pottery items and a clay bread pan:
A like-new hot plate (this thing will cook like a charm during a power outage whereas our 220 volt stove would be a challenge to power up with our mid-size generator):
Four nice metal hanging plant baskets:
A canvas cot with solid oak folding frame:
An antique wall-mount cloths drying rack - perfect for small things such as socks:
A set of four whimsically decorated cloth napkins:
A colorful hand-made afghan:
A like-new hunting vest with game bag (perfect for fall/winter field outings since pockets and game pouch will hold field guides, camera, GPS, etc.):
A nice pair of jeans and insulated flannel shirt for Steve:
A hand-stitched table runner:
A hand-stitched wall hanging (painting the frame will liven it up!):
Any guesses on how much we paid for this haul of great items???
Just 23 dollars...what a deal!!! Many of these items would have been at least that much, per item, at an antiques store so we feel pretty fortunate.
Garage sales are a win-win-win-win:
Seller makes money; buyer gets a deal, previous owner's legacy lives on; things stay out of the waste stream.
