Show and Tell

I went to a super farm sale this week. There was a house, garage and barn filled with stuff. These people never threw anything away, even if it was in pieces. I found a few pieces of great junk but I got 2 items that were great deals. Do you have any idea what these are?


How about now?

These 2 items are collapsible wire egg baskets. I love them both. I have an idea what I will do with them but I'll show you that when I do it. When I got home I checked e-bay just for fun. Someone had bid 9.95 for the top one and one like the bottom one had a starting bid of 6.99.This was a professionally run household sale but I don't think the "professionals" knew what they were. I got them for a quarter each, that's right 25cents! I'm very happy with all my purchases but these were definitely the best deal.

To see more Show and Tell posts go to Kelli's House.

I love 'tuning in' every week to see what you've done with new found treasures. I also like to incorporate 'oldies' into my flower beds. These would make great hanging planters!
