What Can $12.50 Buy At A Random Second Day Estate Sale? Some Mighty Fine Display Shelving! Status: Headed For The Green Shag Market.
The Girlfriend and I were driving home from breakfast and a somewhat fruitless visit to a few of the local thrifts Sunday when she spotted an estate sale sign. I was ready to keep driving, but the sale was like right there on the corner. I could use a better garden hose, so....
Well, I didn't find a hose but this cheap little display cabinet was marked at $25. It was late
Sunday so everything was half off! Score. Truth is, this poor little piece isn't worth much more
THAN $12.50. It's a utility piece...that just happens to have some retro pedigree. I got it to
display more smalls in the booth at the Green Shag Market.
I've got some longer legs that I might put on this to get it up off the ground a little higher. The nice
thing about this is that I have no attachment to it at all. It's just too banged up and it's not the
highest quality piece ever made. It'll get the job done though.
I'll be leaving the sliding glass panels at home. No need for more breakable stuff at Booth 44.
The stuff in these pictures isn't all going to the booth space either. I just wanted to get some
items on there to show it off. I'll be taking the orange casserole warming dish though for sure.
Probably that sailboat too. I'll find a few other choice items to put in here. This means, of
course, that I'll have to bring home something so I can fit this in! I hate to do it, but there's
only so much room. Smalls seem to sell better, so gotta make room for the smalls!
