Last week I posted about the 100 miles of garage sales on Route 34 called "More on 34". My daughter and I went to several of the sales in her town. I showed you some of my bargains in my previous post. Here are some more.
This is a cute little earthenware pot with hand painted flowers. I think I paid a quarter for it!
It was Saturday at around noon when we stopped at this sale. It was 90 degrees out and humid. In other words - hot and sticky. The woman running the sale was ready to GIVE away everything. It was the second day of her sale, the time was almost up, it was HOT, and there was no shade. I started digging in a big box, sifting through all sorts of items. Almost every item had something to do with bees. Yes, bees. Bee plaques. Bee statues. Flowers with bees in them. Bees, bees, bees. I never knew there were so many things with bees on them! I said, "SOMEBODY loves bees!" The woman said, "Oh. That whole box belongs to my neighbor. SHE didn't want to come over here and sit. So whatever you want in there? Half price. I DON'T CARE!" I liked this honey pot pitcher and picked it up for a buck.
At the same garage sale, I picked up 3 of these rooster plates, and 3 larger yellow plates without the rooster in the center. I plan to hang the three rooster plates on my kitchen soffitt.
Don't know if I mentioned it before, but I am into roosters. I found this old, old rooster at another garage sale. It had this note on the bottom of it: "This was made in Deerfield, MI where the squirrel was. Old. Mom" I have no idea if the "squirrel" is referring to a statue, a store, or what. Can anybody out there help me with this?
I bought this "American rooster", too.
These roosters are to add to my ever growing collection of roosters. Here are some on top of my hutch.
Here are some roosting on the buffet of my hutch:
And, I've got some fellas on the ledge over my sink:
Oh, one more item from the sales. I just loved this picture with the rough, barn wood frame:
So, those were my buys. Throw in a couple of odds and ends for my granddaughter, and I think I spent a grand total of $30.00!
