I Found a Gem

Hubby and I went Estate Sale-ing today....they were not great, but I guess that is because of the holiday.  Anyhoosadingy......

At the last sale, in the garage, I saw the top piece of some wood.  I asked my husband, what is that?

Oh, I saw him pull this box out, and I said, I want it!  I want it!

We went up to the checkout, and she said, oh, that is a dollar!!

In the words of Marty....YIP SKIP!!

Hubby said, well, the blogasphere is going to like this!!


Do you see that writing?  Oh my goodness!!


Look at the dovetailing (I think that is what it is called)...


Be still my beating heart....I am IN LOVE!


This is where it is sitting on our patio.


Sorta across from our bistro table.....see the candlelier?  Another sale find!!


While I am at it....I got this sunflower stepping stone a while back for 50 cents...
It was all faded....
Went and bought paint....sealed it....and


Oh, I love estate sales!!

You redeemed a real treasure!!! Good job on repainting your sunflower! I have some things I need to spruce up with some paint. I can just 'see' y'all at that little bistro table!

And I thought my "Eat Raisins" crate was cool. It's not dovetailed. Very neat find.

Lori said...

That is huge! Great deal and a dollar! Are you kidding me. Estate sales usually so over price everything.

I LOVE it! What a find. I've been looking for boxes and recently found one in a 'funny' little store. When I said I wanted it the shop owner said, 'You're kidding - that old thing?'

My knees are weak with envy over that OUTSTANDING bargain you snagged for one dollar. OMG...you win the "pickers award" of the week! I LOVE old boxes..in fact, most of my display items I use for my craft shows/flea markets are old boxes...and customers are always wanting to buy them! :) You put yours to great use already, Ceekay, and I know you will keep it out year round.....changing the decor and use of that wonderful find!

Love your sunflower, too!! I haven't found anything at any of the sales I've been to lately. Hope that luck improves soon!

Have a greaat holiday weekend. L, Dana

Great box ... I believe this is called a finger or comb joint. Looks so nice on your lovely porch.
You have a great eye for treasures.
