I was out doing my normal Saturday garage-saling this morning and not having any luck! I probably went to six or seven different sales without buying anything. I then went to the west side of the city where I have had pretty good luck in the past. Yes, I found stuff immediately. (hmmm, maybe I should start on the west side from now on!)
I met a lady who was selling beautiful jewelry. She had some banana boxes and old metal stuff off to the side that really caught my eye. At first I was interested in the banana boxes, and although they were fabulous, they were pretty big and pretty much over my budget.
I then asked her about this sink. She gave me a price and I told her I'd think about it. As I was driving away, I decided that I had to have it! I quickly ran to an ATM and got more cash and hurried back and bought it.
It wouldn't fit in my car, so we came back later with the truck. She said that several people had stopped to try to buy it. I'm so glad I went back immediately when it hit me that I had to have it. :)
I cleaned it and brought it in the house for now. I might use it as a party cooler or maybe put it out on the back patio with annuals set in the tubs. In the meantime it's in the downstairs kitchen.
She asked that I please not paint it. I promised her I wouldn't! I love the patina and love the rusty legs and wheels.
She was so sweet that she even gave me this picture as we had discussed our mutual love of gardening earlier. I love garden friends!
What a fun day of shopping! I love the fact that I'm not looking for anything in particular when I go out, yet I usually come home with something that makes me very happy.
Thank you for your visit.
