I went to some garage sales again yesterday. I also received a package from an E-Bay seller.
There is a couple that had a sale last summer and again this spring. They used to own a craft store and they still have lots of stuff including fabric, crochet thread, patterns etc etc. I was looking at the packages of hankies and the man told me that there were 12 hankies in the package for $1. I bought one package because I like to embroider hankies and crochet edges on them. When I got home and opened the package it turned out that there are 24 in the package! Not bad. I got the towel hanger for 10 cents.
Friday I went to an estate sale and bought the box for $3 etc. I went back yesterday with my Aunt. They had a bunch of stuff marked down. I bought these four necklaces for $0.50 each. I will use these for all sorts of projects!
I was looking around and happened to look down and see this tin. I never saw it Friday. They had it marked $5 but had reduced it to $3. My Aunt whispered, "Ask if she will take $2". So, I asked and the lady was more than happy to sell the tin of buttons to me for $2!! I was soooo excited. There are some great buttons in there!
I bought this on E-bay during the week and received it yesterday. I love the box and things I can fix the hole in the top. There are fabulous buttons in this box.
Projects made from garage sale and Goodwill finds
This is the tin that I bought at Goodwill for $0.99. I used:
Eyelet trim from Goodwill
Gold cord from Goodwill
Pearls from $0.50 garage sale necklace
Flowers from $3 garage sale box of goodies
Leaves from Goodwill flowers
I used perfect pearls on the flowers and leaves.
If you look at my garage sale haul pics from Friday you will see a shiny gold framed mirror. I painted the frame and added flowers etc.
These flowers came from a garage sale on Friday. It was a pin or brooch. My brother took the pin back apart for me.
This flower is made from the same flowers I used on the tin above. They came from the estate sale on Friday. I used gold perfect pearls and some watered down paint. I mixed red and white paint with a little water to color the edges of these flowers and the flowers on the frame. The center of the flower is a bead that was mixed into a huge container of rocks and flat marbles from Goodwill. I made the stick pins with beads from my stash. Some of those came from Goodwill as well.
I hope you like my projects!!! PLEASE leave a comment!
Thanks everyone and I hope you are having a fabulous Mother's Day and weekend!
