Great sale!

My neighbor and I went to a great household sale today! The house was full of old stuff. I could have bought LOTS of things but then "what to do with them" when my house is already full!I got all this photography stuff for Laurie. My Mom had a camera like the one on the left and I think the kids played with it when they were small so I'm sure she'll love it! I think I paid $12. for all of it.
I got a couple croquet mallets, a stained dresser scarf (.25), a box of Christmas lights and some glass knobs.
I love the graphics on this box. It does have lights in it but I would be afraid to use them. It was only a dollar so I bought it for the box.
Do you remember when I redid this piece? I put the old knobs back on it until I found something better. Well, today I found something better!
I love these glass pulls! They were ten dollars for 4 and I almost didn't buy them. I'm sure glad I did!
I just may go back to that sale tomorrow when things are lower priced and see what else I can find!

I do love the camera gram let us play with. I can't wait to put it on my shelf in the scrapbook room :)

I love all the yard sale finds :)
$12 sounds like a real bargain for all those treasures.
Thanks for your kind and supportive words about Grandpa. He's resting more comfortably.

You found some wonderful things! I'm always buying things for the box, so I know how you feel like that. I really love old graphics and things with words on them like books and boxes. They make wonderful additions to vignettes.
Your blog is looking very lovely and autumn like these days.
Take care.
