You Have to See What I Found!

Hey everyone!  I HAVE to show you what I found last Friday!  My little guy was DYING to go to yard sales, so we hopped in the car and decided to just drive around some neighborhoods to see if anyone was having any sales.   I called my mom to see if she wanted to go, and we went to pick her up. There were THREE sales just on her street alone.  One was an estate sale… elderly lady had passed away and they were selling all her stuff. I always think that’s so sad, but I also think she would have approved of me buying her stuff cause I’ll love it as much as she did. :0)

Here’s what I got!…

vintage insulators

Don’t you just LOVE that old aqua glass jug?! It was with an old coal oil stove and the gentlemen wanted to sell it together, but I told him I really only wanted the jug.  They finally gave in a little later and it was mine…for TWO bucks!  The turquoise plates are Pyrex, then there’s two old ironstone bowls and two Pyrex aqua bowls too.  I love the color of the old electric line insulators. (they were .50 each)

vintage ironstone pitcher

I love the little glass spice jars..I wish they’d had the whole set! I picked up the ironstone pitcher for $3.00 at another yard sale.

vintage glass jub

See the wire rack in the background of the pictures?  It’s a drawer from a vintage refrigerator….I thought it might be good for organizing in one of our bathrooms or my craft area.  


I think my favorite find of the day was this old wire washtub caddy.  You’ll never guess how much that was~!  I got it for $2.00!!!   I already had the washtub, but the wire caddy sells on ebay for over $100.00~!   Whoa baby, did I score on that one! :0)

vintage basket

It is missing a few of the little metal clips, but I figure I can find something to fix that pretty easily.

galvanized tub

Here’s the base…..the whole thing folds up flat.

wire clothes basket

Okay….that’s my stash for last week!  Oh….and my poor little man didn’t find one thing that day…I felt so bad!


I got my entire stash of goodies for $13.00!  I think I did rather well don’t you?! :0)

Have a great day~!

I never knew there were old wash tub holders. We had them on bench downstairs when I was little and my mom actually washed clothes with her old wringer washer. It must have been the one they got when they were married in 1947. Lucky you.♥♫

Robyn said...

My GOODNESS!! I want to go yardsale-ing with YOU (and shopping and all kinds of other schtuff!) You got the best goodies! I have seen your wire basket thing used as a laundry basket too. I LOVE them and can't believe you found one! At all of the antique stores around here they are marked "not for sale" POOO!

Chris at Red Gate Farm said...

Wow, you found some fabulous things! That wire wash tub holder is fabulous! I agree, whenever I've seen them they have usually been at least $100!


Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Great finds Missy! I do love that jug too and would not have wanted the coal oil stove either. I went to some sales last week too but I didn't blog about it. I blogged about my trip. Heading to some sales tomorrow and then my granddaughters birthday party. Have a great weekend!~Hugs, Patti

Cindy said...

Ohhhhh , fun! I can't believe you found that washtub caddy for $2.00!!! I think they are wonderful, what a crazy cool find.


Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was dying over that pitcher and then you showed me the nest for your wash tub. That's it, I've died and gone to junker heaven!

I'm so so glad you found such a great stash for such a great price!!

Thanks for sharing.

Holy smokes! Great finds and even greater deals.

I too always feel a little sad when shopping at estate sales but I think "At least I will be loving their things."
