Wednesday Estate Sale

I'm a firm believer, that the best stuff at Estate Sales, can be found in the Garage and Shed. Today's sale was no exception.

I went through the house first and found the mirror (more about that later), then I headed outside to the shed, where I found this great game called Canoga, or Shut the box. A Game I knew nothing about until today, but I couldn't pass up this wooden box with numbers and flaps that covered the numbers. I'll probably clean out the old felt and either try to re-felt it or paint it.

Now for the Mirror. I've had this picture in my idea book for awhile now.

and I"ve been looking at these old dressing table mirrors to do something like this. But these mirrors are not cheap, they go for between $20-$40. This one was priced for $5.00 so I scooped it up. First step to a new collection.

The tray was a bonus find, don't know what I'll do with it. The 2 door plates were found at a separate sale for .50c. All in all i spent $9.50. And this is only Wednesday, can't wait for tomorrow.

I had a request to post pics of me and my barn, so
here you go.

You crack me up. I love that you find stuff on a Wednesday. We never have sales around here on a Wednesday.
I love everything you bought. I think a mirror collection, sounds like a plan.
Look forward to seeing the game, when you redo/paint it.

Margo, I really enjoyed the barn tour--Thanks! I bet just walking into the barn makes you feel good. And isn't the hunt for things half the fun? That's my problem - I enjoy the hunt too much! Have fun with all your new finds!!

Margo - I've been trying to find some affordable hand mirrors too, but I want black ones. I have fresh hope now that you've found one to start your collection. Your barn makes me envious. I had a huge junk collection till hubby insisted I clean it out. Almost every single day I wish I still had some of those goodies!

I will hopefully be ready to buy a house in 5 yrs and it WILL have a barn or workshop.
