so much scope for the imagination...

I hit the jackpot this weekend!








ad read:

sale in garage
bring your flashlight and particle mask




hmmm... now I 'm interested




we get there:
enter at your own risk
everything is for sale
make a pile and we'll deal





That was an understatement!


2 sheds full of antique parts
most too far gone from their original use
but ohh so much potential

(my dear husband runs from that word!)



But look at what I got for $50.00


I was still a little tired from last weekend

but this was just what I needed
to get me going again!

Wow....you really did hit the jackpot! $50 doesn't buy much these days, but it looks like you've proved that wrong! When I look at all those chairs I think of all the possibilities in store for them. Such little treasures!
Have fun with them!

OH MY WORD RENE!!!!
You have got to be kidding me...I can not believe what you got!
What a blessing!

Can't wait to see what you do with those treasures, the pink door I have to have, better come over and make a deal! ;)

XXOO,

Hi Rene, I just found your blog through Vinatge Home Lifestyle who I just found from Tracie at My Petite Maison. You got a heck of a deal. I would have bought the exact same things. I will visit again when I have more time. I am plotting my agenda for tomorrow's sales. With the price of gas, this is serious business.

I will talk to you soon.

I can't believe we are just finding your blog! I am sure you have many great stories about getting your store together (that you can appreciate more after the fact). We are in the midst of the madness for our opening this weekend. We will have to share war stories...if me and Joe make it out alive. :o)

P.S. - What is BTDT?? :o)
