So a few months back, I spent a day off going through one of our storage units and got one emptied out. Some was donated, some of it (broken items) was thrown away and then I brought some things to the farm. For those that are new to the blog, these are storage units that have some of our stuff in there and then the stuff I inherited from my Mom and Dad. We had three, and now we're down to one large one and another small one that's almost empty. It has my Dad's tools, workbench, etc that will go to the barn at the farm soon.
This is a coffee pot with sugar and creamer that belonged to a Great Aunt in my family. I can't remember off the top of my head the maker but it is very pretty and we'll definitely keep it (and use it) at the farm.
These are awesome...my Mom had assembled a collection of vintage aluminum-ware. She had a red tray, twelve cups of varying colors, a yellow pitcher and four long spoons. We can't wait to use these next Summer for some ice cream floats perhaps?
This bowl belonged to my grandmother. It's not in the best shape with a few nicks and chips and the gold trim rubbed off in spots but it's still a neat thing to have. We think it will make a nice bowl for sitting out on the counter...fresh fruit perhaps?
She also had this old, vintage print. It's sort of a painting but not an original. I think these used to be sold in five and dime type stores. It's pretty and because of the flower themes, it will go great in the guest room at the farm.
So those are a few of our latest bargains, and I say bargains because they were the best kind...FREE because we already had them!
