Garage Sale Scores--Scale, Birdcage and More





I really found some fun things at the garage sales this weekend--a  great old copper tub, a wooden box, a birdcage, a scale and some drill bits for my husband.





I was thrilled to find this old Wayrite scale.  But....the biggest bummer of the day was that a girl right before me grabbed the cutest rusty old blue scale.  And she paid $3 for it!!  I would've preferred to have not even seen it.  :)  But, I keep telling myself that I have LOTS of scales, so it was not for me this time....  And, this scale that I did find is very fun!


Here it is in the house with some other recent garage sale finds (and a bird feeder from HomeGoods).




This little birdcage caught my eye.  I didn't care for it in black, but figured I could paint it.



Now it's blue/green.




I love this old box!  It's a perfect size to hold lots and lots of magazines.




 My husband is in the process of cleaning up the copper tub.  I will post about it when it's all spiffed up. 
Thanks for your visit!

  1. Ugh, don't you hate when that happens. I turn my back for second and it's gone. At least you were able to come home with another scale along with all of your other great finds.

  8. Hi Pam, thanks for coming by Quirky Vistas and following. I'm now following you as well. Love the junk you found. What treasures! It would be better sometimes if we didn't know what we missed out on. Oh, the agony of missing something by mere moments!

  14. Oh, and I know what you mean about the scale! Twice, now, on eBay, I have forgotten about (and therefore missed) two fabulous scales...missed them by $1!! (It doesn't bother me if I miss out on something that goes for big bucks, but when I'm outbid by $1, it really gets me! LOL)

  16. Hi Pam,

    You scored some great finds. I love the scale. The birdcage looks great painted. The box is so terrific and it sure does hold many magazines. I can't wait to see the copper tub cleaned up.
