Cool old junk...

I had to go to the bank today to cash a check. Oh boy!! On the way there I saw an antique shop nearby was having a yard sale. Lilly and I stopped on the way back home. The shop is never open, it seems, so I was really excited to go today. I was just talking about not spending money for a month, but well...I had the best of intentions. Check out what I got $1.25 above. I have been wanting one of those cow creamers. I've seen them at Target for a couple or so dollars, but I got this one for only a quarter!!
The lady gave me the vintage postcard. Yay, I love me some free!!


Moo...

Isn't this cute??


Since I was there, I had to go inside. This place had a basement-two of them!! I found the bed for Fisher. Yes, I am shopping ahead. Everything inside was half off!! The bike was tangled up in a tree out back. I saw it when I pulled back there to pick up the bed. This place was so dirty and dusty. Definitely not the cute antique malls I am used to. I also saw the doors back there. The bike I am going to keep outside by the tree. I want to get a basket on front to put flowers in. Its gonna be so cute!! The doors I got for a dollar each.


Here is the bed. The boys' bedroom is a cabin/lakehouse theme. I got this bed for $15{yes, it does have rails}. Jackson's bed I found at a consignment furniture shop a few years ago. I'll have to show it to y'all sometime. I have a whole post planned for my thrifted furniture.


Love these doors!! I am thinking of painting Welcome to the Lakehouse on one of them for the boys' room. Too bad I don't have a super handy, furniture building man to make me a cabinet for them. :( Cory has other skills, though, and saves us a bundle on car repairs and whatnot.

Oh yeah, baby!! Got this Corona typewriter for $14. I have been wanting one of these puppies. When I saw the price, I think my jaw dropped!! I also got some silver forks and spoons, but there are soaking, so I'll have to share those with y'all later.
Thank y'all for indulging me. Hope you don't think its rude to share prices, but I personally love seeing your good deals!! Hope y'all have a fabulous weekend!!

I love antiquing! There is just nothing like finding your treasure. We have a store in Minneapolis called Hunt and Gather that you would just love. You got some great goodies.
