Howdy, friends. How was your weekend? I hit a few yard sales Saturday with not much luck, but then a stop at an estate sale brightened the day. There were several more things I probably should have bought, but no room in my suv. Wanna’ see what I scored?
This primitive red trunk was a fun find- built by the grandfather, sturdy, and well used. The family members got a little teary eyed as we started to load it up. At that point, I asked if they really wanted to sell it, and they nodded. ~sniff~
We didn’t notice at first that the handles are different on each end. Use what you have, and future generations will simply see it as charm.
Here’s a peek at the inside, surprisingly clean for such a rustic piece.
This oak Windsor bench was priced as a set with a dining table and four chairs. I asked if they would be willing to sell it separately. Several people had asked that already, but they decided to let me have it, and at an incredible price. Though it can be a gamble, sometimes going on the last day of a sale can be to your advantage.
Nice turned spindles, no loose joints.
One more look:
Both of these items are going into my booth, and for once, I won’t need to do a thing to them. Unless I decide to make a cushion for the bench. Should I?
