I hit a HOARDER'S Garage Sale today!

The yard was full of tables and the driveway full of furniture. There was sooo much there and the 2 daughters kept going in and bringing out more boxes and unpacking them!
They said it was only the tip of the iceberg!!

I just took a few pics of the furniture I picked up, no time to take pictures of the smalls right now.

This neat little lidded storage box, heavy! Was remade from the base of an old radio cabinet.
 I went back 2 more times after my first load, lots of smalls and these pieces of furniture for very cheap! So I took them home, quickly cleaned them up and dropped them off at the Red Barn sale.

If this piece doesn't sell, it might find a home with me, although I don't know just where I can put it, but I just couldn't leave it behind for the price they were asking!

Flip it down and you've got these neat desk with nice little cubbies.
 A great project piece. Wish I had the time!
This went into to the back of my van, to the Red Barn, and sold while I was still unloading the other furniture!

I was running all day and tomorrow I go back to the sale to help out and when it's over to pack up what's left of mine and bring home.

Just got news this evening that we have to make a trip out of town, leaving Tuesday, so it will be a big rush to get what I have to get done on Monday before we go away.

Hope to be back next weekend.
So have a good week everyone and sooner or later I'll post bit by bit the wonderful treasures I've found over the last two weekends!

What a haul you had! It's even better when you sell something right out of your van. I have to fight the urge all the time to not buy things just because they're a great bargain...most of the time, the urge to buy wins out. Looking forward to seeing all your other treasures.
