On my way home from work, I noticed signs for neighborhood garage sales in an older part of town--an area where I usually can find some great old stuff. It was late, though, and most of the sales had closed up for the day.
The one that was still open for business was the only one that counted. For $8 total, I got this rusty old garden fork.
And, this rusty, crusty old crank hand drill with a wooden knob and crank grip. I'll have to think of something fun to do with this relic. My grandpa had one of these--well, probably several--on his farm.
And, this sweet 1956 baby crib. The springs are likely to end up in the garden to be used as a trellis. But, I'm not opposed to using it to hang inspiration photos and other goodies in my craft room. The frame? The foundation for a bench or a chair, maybe? Towel racks? A garden gate? Time will tell.
And, finally, this fantastic chair. It already has a great chippy finish that I could easily live with. Eventually, though, I'll probably be compelled to paint it another color.
A productive evening drive indeed.
Make it a great day!
