Chablis picked up the adorable Christmas tray. I chose the awesome Stanley thermos in purple - Brand new, never used and the purple color is too cool. I also grabbed the 2 painted cutting boards and I wasn't home 10 minutes before I already had taken my electric sander to both of them. The smaller one is destined to become a key holder and I have an experiment I'm wanting to try on the round one. Hopefully I'll get to that this week. I'll let you know.
Chablis also got the brand new Nutcracker for her Christmas decorations, a new grater and the wooden hanger. We always like those because of the advertising on them. I took the red handled whisk and the little angel is actually a bell. I may sell the whisk, maybe not. It's in pretty decent shape and I'm always using whisks. The bell may be incorporated into something or added to a string of bells I have hanging in my bedroom in Kentucky. Undecided....
This large wooden cutting board was caked with grease and slice marks. I mean caked. Ick. But once I sanded off the top few layers of wood, you will not believe the gorgeous warm red tone this wood has. It's fab. It cleaned up beautifully. Now I have to decide if I want to take my wood burning tool to it. I'm telling you, the color is beautiful. The rectangular wooden box slides open. Somebody named Linda scribbled her name all over it in pencil. I took it because it's perfect for a geocache I want to make.
And my favorite find of the weekend was the Schweppes crate. I rarely see these and the price was right. The woman who was selling it at the garage sale was really giving me her hard sell on it... "Oh, that's such a nice sturdy crate. I've had it for years. It's been sitting in my living room for forever. I almost hate to give it up." LOL... Ok lady, I sincerely hope it was not sitting in your living room because it was extremely filthy and had huge cobwebs and dead bugs all over it, not to mention the years of dirt embedded in every crevice. Whatever. I didn't even try to talk her down on the price because it was that cheap and I really wanted it.
PLUS....... It says Chicago, ILL. on the side. Score!!
What did you find this week?
