My best friend and her husband have purchased a condo in Florida and she invited me to go garage saling in order to look for some housewares to help stock the kitchen. Pictured above are three vintage issues of Look Magazine from 1967 that I bought for 50 cents each and the freebie of the day, a crystal sugar bowl in a sterling silver holder. We had seen two garage sale signs in the same subdivision and by the time we finished at the first sale, everything at the second sale was free! The silver was very tarnished but it cleaned up well with a lemon juice and salt rub. I think I'm going to use it for bath salts by the bathtub. And then we hit gold at one house where Kim found a distressed blue green windsor style wooden chair for $5.00 and I found this small cabinet for $15.00. The cabinet is in great shape as is but I'm thinking of painting it black to use in my daughter's bedroom as a nightstand. Her room is decorated in robin's egg blue, linen, and black. A great find, huh? Thanks, Rhoda, for inviting us all to post our garage sale finds.
