NOT The Bins!

Believe it or not, I DO junk somewhere besides The Bins from time to time!  I made two estate sale stops this weekend.  One was a hoarder house, but not everything that gets hoarded should be.  At one point I was down in the basement, trying to find something worth hauling out when another shopper said she was "stuck".  I commented that if someone tipped over in a corner down there they might never be found.
Most things were un-priced, which I hate. It is so awkward if they name some ridiculous price and you have to say no thank you.  Well I gathered up an armload of tins and headed over to the man in the lawn chair to ask how much.  "Oh, those old things, you can just have them."  DOH.  I told him I insisted on paying something so he said 10 cents each.
I found 5 pieces of old restaurant china at the same sale and added them to my pile.  When I was ready to leave I asked the price for the pile.  $1.00.  Well, okay sir, how about I give you $2. O probably should have given him $5 but who am I to argue.
The bottles and chippy metal plant stands are from a different sale and they were NOT 10 cents. As they say, one man's junk....
The wire dress form has snaps up the front.  I tried to put it on but it hurt too much - LOL!

diggers are truly the best. I always hold my breath at the check out stand though as you just never know what price they will throw out.

You find so many great things.

My fave this time is the chicken wire shape. That would be so fun to decorate.
