We went to garage sales, but there weren't many to choose from.
One NOTHING was priced, but I picked up a milk glass fruit bowl for $1.
The next garage sale EVERYTHING was overpriced. Bought nothing.
One garage sale, we didn't even stop because we realized we went to it last week! The woman is a Longaberger consultant so none of her baskets/pottery are cheap. She wants full value on them, so we kept driving.
It was just a big fail, so we stopped into a thrift store I had only been to one time, a few years back. They were kinda high on things but I did get the white milk glass there for a 1.69. It goes for about $15 bucks on Ebay. It is an Anchor Hocking Fire King piece.
I strolled down an aisle that had knick knacks and paintings. I spotted one painting that seemed so familiar to me. I knew I had seen it in a catalogue. I picked it up and looked on the back and sure enough it was Southern Living at Home. My friend had had one of those parties a couple years back! The painting is called Pear with Bee, by Meg Page. It was $6, so I put it back since I wasn't quite sure where I would put it.
I get to the cash register and ask if any days are half off (no) but she showed me today it's half off paintings, so I told her hold on while I ran back to get that painting.
$3 is a great deal. I do think I will be able to incorporate it into the dining room.
