Another Auction find.  A Pile of 7 antique chairs for $9.00.  I also went on craigs list the next day for the first time.  Wow what a great site.  I scored 5 chairs for free.  Now I really have work to do, 12 chairs to give some blue and new paint!
Wow  A Thift store was cleaning out the back storage room $5.00
Last week end my trunk was full and other stuff went with a friend.  A Chimney cupboard for 1 dollar just like the one I repaired.  And lots of JUNK!!!
Auction win.  I got my wagon for $10.00 and pulled it the auction filling it up a couple of times.  Notice the heart.  This is a cast iron door that may have went to a stove of some sort.  I picked up 2 boxes of old electrical parts free from a womant that borrowed my wagon. Oh what fun!  I already loaded an antique mirror, oil can and some wood I picked up for less than $30 all together. The sad note is I left 5 hours early!
I saw these 2 casement windows alone the road side curb.  Guess the garbage man wont take them.  Covered with dirt and weeds.  One had 3 broken panes and the 4th broke.  But the wood is cool so I will use that on a project.  I plan on using this as a door on a curio cabinet I plan to build.

Just some of the great finds within the last week.  I guess I really need to focus on Creating and cleaning. Auctions are so fun.  Hope you are having fun too!
