Yeah baby!! It is actually a rototiller attachment that goes with my gas weed eater that I got last year from the "trash pick up". I also got this cute little mirror that will eventually live on my gallery wall:
Then, while driving around on my hunt I came across this vanity in someone's front yard. It had a sign taped to it that read > $25 obo, leave your money under the mat. Thanks!< It was totally worth the $25, but I was in free mode and so I passed it up.....then a few hours later I went back by just to see if it was still there...yep, still left it there. Then after a few MORE hours it started to rain...so I went back by and decided to take the vanity home. I left $15 under the mat and a note that said....>I am leaving $15 for the vanity, please call me if you do not think that is a fair price 707-#### Thanks, Sarah< I never got a call so I assume they were happy....I am definitely happy.
Last but not least, I got these candle sticks from my grandma. They are actually hand made by an old neighbor of hers. She told me that there were originally three candlesticks but she sold the smallest one years ago at a yard sale. I am in LOVE with them.
All in all, I think I have done pretty darn good in the last couple weeks. Sometimes I get so envious of people because it seems like they find all the good stuff and all that I can ever find is blah. I had a lucky streak, what else can I say. I already know what I am going to do with some of the things, others will fall into place eventually. What have you found lately? Have you ever bought something on the honors system like I did with the vanity? Or are you a proud trash picker?....Oh yeah baby, be proud!!
