Junking Weekend, November 1-2, 2008

Pin It
This was more than a junking weekend. This was quality time with the in-laws. Seriously! They are way fun! We started with a fish dinner on Friday night. On Saturday hubs and his dad worked on stuff around the house. MIL and I headed into town to see what we could find.

SERENDIPITY

The first couple sales were HORRIBLE! Luckily, we were on the east side of town, so we stopped in for respite and renewal at Serendipity! Do you remember Serendipity? I posted about them a few weeks ago. Here are the owners, a mother and daughter team, Shirley and Gayle...

OWNERS OF "SERENDIPITY"
(No website or blog...yet!)

If you remember from my previous post, Serendipity is located in a beautiful old home with high ceilings and beautiful architecture. One of my favorite rooms was the bathroom. The older post shows the tub with a Halloween decor. Here is the tub with the new holiday decor...


Here is an idea for an old window...


Here is an idea for simple holiday art...


Look at this clever use of springs...


This was a light fixture made out of an old pot...


ESTATE SALE

After Serendipity, we headed to an "estate" sale. I use the term loosely, because it was more of a garage sale for an estate. No estate sale company was involved, nothing was marked, everything was in disarray, and the poor seller was very indecisive and easily distracted. It was frustrating for the buyers, but I also felt sorry for the guy who was there to sell and settle his grandmother's estate. He was from out of state and alone. Not an envious task, I'm sure.

This was my one and only find for the day...


Carol found these vintage goodies...


CANAL PARK

We met the guys in Canal Park for dinner. We visited the lighthouse and watched for ships near the Aerial Lift Bridge. Super fun!

  2. It's not how many treasures you find, it's the fact you find one!
