Weekend Picks, Etc.

We knew we had an auction to go to last Saturday morning right in our neighborhood. How handy is that? While I was getting ready, Roger ran down to scope it out. He came back and told me there really wasn't much there, except some chrome and laminate tables. Now, he can say that sort of thing, but I like to see for myself. I'm pretty good at finding stuff that he overlooks. And, vice versa. That's why we work together on this. The auction didn't last long - less than three hours. We came home with a number of great things!


 
 
I picked up a flat and a couple boxes/bags of small Christmas d├ęcor. I love all these little angels. Especially the little cardboard ones with the wooden bead heads.

 
 
I could not figure out the point of this Styrofoam Santa, but how can you possibly go wrong with a Styrofoam Santa?

 
And, then my sister asked me if it opens....Oh my gosh!! It's a Styrofoam Santa cooler!! Why would you need a Santa cooler? Why not? I can hardly wait to start decking our booth for Christmas.


We also picked up a flat of baby toys. I probably would have passed them up at first glance, but Roger pointed them out, so I picked through them a bit more. It was the blue bear rattle that sold me.



I picked these two pillows out of some boxes of ratty blankets. They're pristine and obviously handmade. What is this pattern called? It looks like stained glass.


Remember the chrome and laminate tables? Yeah, we bought five of them. I'm not even going to tell you what we paid. It was criminal. What do you do with five tables? Stack them in your living room, of course! Hoping to get these out of here soon!

More great finds at Thriftasaurus!
