This past weekend I went out to a few garage sales and found nothing useful. If I had been in the market for fifteen deskchairs, twenty mats to go under rolling chairs, ten metal filing cabinets, and four tacky bookcases--well, then I would have hit the motherload. Unfortunately I'm not in the market for any of that stuff.
Two weekends ago, however, I found a couple of good things. One of these cost fifty cents and the other cost seventy-five cents.
My husband says the first garage sale ripped me off (the one that charged me 75 cents), especially since the second birdcage came with the bonus of an old magnet stuck to the bottom. Actually, I believe he thinks both garage sales ripped me off because he sees no point to buying a birdcage that can't house a bird...and trust me, we will not be getting a bird!
Still, I was quite excited and have a lot of plans for these birdcages. I did paint one of them just to see what it would look like...
Now I'm thinking of painting it again. This time I'm thinking of painting it black and putting pumpkins in it. I'm not sure yet, but I'll come up with something for these bargains of mine!
