Turned into my treasure!
We went junkin’ Saturday and I found some goodies I thought I would share.
I spent less than $25.00 and it was so much fun to find fun new to me goodies.
For instance………I found this sweet little lamp for my kitchen.
I am trying my hardest to find a comparison lamp online that isn’t out of this world expensive but I am having a hard time doing so.
I have wanted a lamp like this for some time but they are “too far” out of my budget.
So this was a fun find !
Here s the ONLY comparison I could find that wasn’t super expensive……
Their price $96.00…..Mine $3.00!!!
This is a metal, painted, ocean themed piece of art. It has panes that are like a window…..and I canNOT find anything really similar to compare it with!
Love the size of it!
I used to have a wooden sign here that had it’s last year last year and just literally fell apart this spring, so this was a fun “fresh” change for our gates.
Look how well it matches our fencing!
Really cool part?
I got two!
For five dollars!!!
She had been asking ten…….I asked if she would take five.
The lady literally followed me to my car telling me how expensive they were……
I squealed my tires and got outta there before she changed her mind.
Ok….I didn’t squeal my tires but I couldn’t figure out the separation anxiety thing and really felt bad.
I didn’t want to give her time to change her mind. ; )
I couldn’t find the exact same one at Pottery Barn….but here is one on sale…..
Lucia Embossed Ceramic Serving Platter
Look at those little cast iron hooks……
Â I know…..I paid tooooooooo much.
But the other items were 10 cents a piece, so I coughed up the George Washington. About killed me.
Just a few odds and ends……
Â (for my nephew…too cute)
Â (by the pool…..can hold hair bands….jewlery etc)
Â (turtle plaque)
Â (am going to paint this white and distress)
Â This was my doofus buy…….I thought it was an oil lamp…..it’s a fragrance diffuser?
I had plans of painting it black and using it outside with citronella oil.
Unless I can somehow rig this into an oil lamp, it will make it’s way into my own giveaways : )
Anyone know if I can?
Do any of you guys enjoy junkin’.
Are you embarrassed by it?
Do you ask for lower prices?
I am very respectful but if I do feel that it is a high price I will ask for a lower price……
Would love to hear about it!
