Week 10 ~ Diamonds In The Rough!

Diamonds In The Rough! is my weekly feature, where I show you the treasures that I find from garage sales, thrift store and antique stores.

Here are my treasures from this weeks garage sales:
A $7 table. This will be sold at the antique store.

A $2 very old and very cool genuine cowhide leather suitcase that I was going to sell in my booth, but Hubby loves it, so I guess we are keeping it!
Look at the inside! Very interesting.
Now this little $5 table grabbed my attention right away. Can you see it painted in MacKenzie Childs style...I can and I will.
Here are the cute legs on this adorable table complete with all the dirt and grime that came with it.
A 25¢ scarf, two 10¢ glass bowls for my garden art project and a sweet bunny cookie cutter.
DEAL OF THE DAY! Brand new BareMinerals foundation in my color, regularly $17.99 each, I paid 25¢ each for the six of them!!!!!
An vintage enamelware bowl, $1. I will sell in my booth.
 Now, on to what I bought for my daughter's apartment...
A nearly new Hoover Vac!
Two cute canisters, $1.
She has been wanting a water purifier, this one was only $1 with a new unused filter. And coasters to keep her from ruining the tables that I painted for her. Uhhh, Hubby accidentally dropped ALL of the coasters in the garage BEFORE I was able to give them to our daughter. None survived the crash!

  3. Hi Terry, I just love your blog! Your home is so beautiful,and i love to see all your garage sale treasures.I spend a lot of time at garage sales too! Why pay full price when you can even get better things at garage sales,and the thrift store.


  4. I love all that you bought, and your hubby was right, that suitcase should stay!

  5. Do you also use a water purifier? I think we need one for our entire house because our water is so hard. But i would settle for one for our drinking water for now.
