Garage Sale Goodies

I don't often get the chance to go to garage sales on a Saturday, but occasionally I will make the effort if a local one is advertised as vintage. I scored all of the goodies below for a total of $9.


Mr P & I have been looking out for a roaring deer painting ever since we got our deer antlers from a farm in New Zealand. I scored this F. Bossi artwork for $3. Now I just need to get it framed.



I also got this old tapestry thrown in for free.


White vanity case that was filthy but scrubbed up okay. It was in the free pile. It has sweet pink lining.


Large vintage tin


Old Katy book


A wee Japanese made deer.


A groovy glazed jug/vase.



A little green canister/sugar bowl


Persinware kitchen scales also from the free pile.

I'm linking up with Sophie over at  Her Library Adventures flea market finds. I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend. Xx

  4. Lovely finds. I especially like the free tapestry, the vanity case and the cannister. I keep seeing copies of What Katie Did/At school/Next in charity shops, perhaps the universe is saying I should re-read them. xxx

  5. The deer painting is epic. I have a great framer friend in the GC if you need recommendations.
    And you know I'm digging that sugar canister.

  14. The make up case and the sugar canister are fabulous. I used to love reading the What Katy Did series of books when I was a kid.
