National Road West Garage Sale!

Hello friends! I don't know about you but one of the things I look forward to the most this time of year is a great tag, yard or garage sale.  I usually don't find anything primitive or antique although I am surprised once in awhile.  I love the thrill of the hunt!  I told my husband it's like I'm tapping into that early ancestor when I'm gathering...LOL!

Around central IN we have a garage sale that is along the old national road west highway 40 where residents can set out there junk/stuff to sell it.  Here's my haul and I still have the weekend left!

lot # 1 is dessert cups 12 @ 10 cent each
Considering I just dumped and broke my set of 6 this made me very happy!

white pyrex bowl, white vase, old colander, pyrex snowflake casserole dish

I paid 2$ for the black one, $1 for the white one and the rest were only 25 cents.

Harry and David dippers $1 for set of 4

old print type drawer $4

I plan on using this in my scrapbook room somehow.

My favorite find!

An old ironing board, it's all wood even the legs! 
Can't you just see this in my new laundry room with an old basket w/quilt inside, clothespins, vintage tin of soap?? Whoo Hoo!

See you soon!


  1. Wow! You made out like a bandit! Great finds!

  2. You got some goodies! At great prices, I
    would say!
    Check out all the stuff I got over the
    last two weekends, on my blog! I have to
    quit for awhile, I have too much stuff!
    Have fun treasure hunting!
