City Wide Yardsale

Okay this is a terribly ugly yellow and I hate the heart cutout but it will be great once refinished. I will post pics. it needs to be sanded soon!!!

I think I have the top on backwards but not sure yet. Already started sanding. The back piece slides up and becomes the table top. This is going in the game room. I was going to refinish it for the store but it got claimed.

I don't even know if I will do anything to this. It is so old and cool. I should of taken a picture from the sides, it looks like someone made it in their barn.

Okay this old trunk has been claimed as well. My son is now using it for a coffee table in his room. I just cleaned it up and stained it inside. He liked it just the way it is. It has a nice old finish to it.

Love all the advertisements and recipes and such in these old papers

The little table has already been sanded and painted. Just need to prim it up and i will take a picture of it again.

Love this old sled

I like the enamelware. White ironstone dishes inside. They are going to be in my kitchen soon. I forgot about them until just now. I got a halloween jello mold to use for beeswax bowl fillers. The old suit case I love these. I have them in the spare rooms to store different stuff like linens.

How cute is this old folding chair. It is child size.
Our local towns and cities, and I use the word city very very loosely,  They have a grocery store and no dept stores lol. Anyway every year on different weekends the whole town will have a city/town wide yardsale. It is really fun and there are always so many to go to. This year my friends and I did one, and all the proceeds were for Relay for Life. On Friday I went over to my friends house with the plan being we were going to set up for the sale and price things. I get there and she wants to hit a few of the sales that were opening early. Well about 6 hours later, and two pick up loads of stuff we finally made it back to her house to set up for the sale. I got all this stuff for less than forty dollars. I got a bunch of small things too but as you can see my front porch is so full it is hard to take pics, much less get to it all.
The next one is on the 4th in another town. I can't wait.
Oh and I got two old ironing boards at the land fill too.
here is one of them. the other one is all wood. And those two little shelves on the rocking chair in the background as well. Yikes my porch was seriously a mess there for a couple of days.
