This weekend we weren't overly successful at garage sales but I lucked in when we stopped at an antique shop in Fairborn OH called Bittersweet Antiques on Main St, if you are any where nearby please stop in. This is our 2nd time in the store and both times I found things I couldn't live without for prices that are reasonable......There were many items I would've loved to have but I spent my budget for this time
My 1st find here was my most expensive at $35. I have a mirror that I dug out of a dumpster many many years ago and the mirror has become cloudy and the frame is separating. When I saw this one I knew it was the right replacement. Apparently Miss Emily likes it as well....

In its new home:
My next find is a birdcage Stand that I got for $19. I plan on stripping and spray painting it bronze . I am going to put it in my living room and hang a plant from it.
Emily also gave her seal of approval - I think she is checking out the detailing on the base of it:
I'm not sure what this was, maybe something off of an old washstand? I plan to put it up in my bathroom for towels. I got it for $15
The next item came from a garage sale. I paid $4 for two of them.
I plan on stripping them - I'm still debating paint or stain
I think it depends on what the wood is like - I usually stain everything
I really like the design on the sides:
My hsb also found something at a garage sale, he couldn't live without for
A band saw for $25.
