Thursday Estate Sale Finds

Let me first say that I drove all over town looking for this one sale and whenI got there, I found nothing. But all was not lost, because in my hunting for the right road, I found 2 other Yard sales, one that had some great old junk.

At the best sale I found this chest. It's either a night stand, or a child's dresser. I love the shape and I think it will look nice with new nobs and some cleaning up. It was $5.00. I think you'll agree it was a bargain.

At the same sale I found this silverware:

That I will make a hook hanging rack out of.
At the same sale I found most of the other items in this pic (not the coffee table)

The green thing is a metal bread box with 2 compartments.
I think the thing on the right is some sort of lamp. It's very heavy with a great ornate base and this platform that came off of it. With an ornate iron handle.
Any ideas what I can do with the parts?

I also found this cute wooden bowl at another sale:

Well How'd I do. Any ideas for the iron lamp thing?

I almost forgot, I got these 2 school chairs for free and the other chair for about $1.00.

Wow, terrific finds! Isn't it fun?
The heavy iron thing looks like it would make a great base for either a table, plantstand or birdbath. I'm sure you will think of something - just tuck it somewhere in the barn til the idea strikes ya!

Great finds. I have an iron lamp stand similar to that. I got it at a relatives auction. She kept a big old spool of thread on it. It sits under one of my end tables in the living room.
I've just recently found your blog, and love all your treasures!
