This weekend's vintage finds . . .

This weekend we hit a few garage sales 
in a neighborhood down the street from our house.
 I never really expect to find too much at garage sales, 
but we found some great deals on a few treasures
I'll be adding to my etsy shop this week.

Some vintage wood pop crates 
(I love the blue graphics on this white one),
a graniteware bowl,

 and this pretty handmade treasure. 
Someone probably made it for a pillow top a long time ago.
It is pink and white, and I'm going to put it in a vintage frame.

An old chippy painted window with legs on it. 
Not sure what type of window it was originally.

 An old typewriter carrying case.
It was too good of a deal to pass up.
I think it could be repurposed into any type of carrying case or storage.

 A red, chippy fish tackle box.
Perfect for storing and organizing.

A few more things that didn't make the photo cut . . .
two vintage pillowcases with pink crochet edging,
a couple of old metal file boxes and 
four vintage chandelier lamp shades.

Thanks for stopping by.
