I was keeping my eye open for some yardsticks. I have a project in mind for them and need about 20 or so. I already have 9 that I'd picked up over the years. I can't believe how many I've passed up at garage sales and auctions, thinking that I really didn't need another yardstick. I managed to find a few more this weekend. As soon as I collect enough, I'll work on my project and share it with you in a blog post.
I also keep my eye open for Longaberger Baskets. I picked up a couple of these. They weren't a "steal" but they were a good buy!
I scored another Easter basket for $12
A 2007 Sweat Treats Christmas Basket, with liner, protector, and lid for $15
And a commemorative Sycamore Illinois basket, protector, lid, and tag for $20.
I passed up several others... The King wouldn't let me get them all.... okay maybe he would have but I know my limits.
He picked up a wooden golf club. I was surprised he picked it up and bought it.
I also watch for antique irons and antique quilts. I didn't find any irons I didn't already have and no antique quilts.
I didn't buy this but I thought it was really neat. It's a framed Sewing Machine Patent. I thought it was a little pricey so I passed on it.
Not a bad weekend shopping!
