My latest finds

Hi prim girls,

Probably and because we are in the perfect season for yard and garage sales, the good donations in our town are very slow.  But this week the story was different, I was in the TS and  when I saw this pipe box  at the top of the rack, it looks nice at the distance but when I put it in my hands looks much better, LOL, it was in nice condition.  After I grab my finding and searching more, I can not believe what my eyes are seeing, I found 5 clay pipes, 3 of them in perfect condition. They are at $3 , not too bad at all. But when I was paying for it, I asked to the cashier if they are $3ea and she said, I think this price was too high, Did you accept $1 ea?. WOOHOO. I obtain my pipe box and pipes for a grand total of $6.00. Well, this was my best finding of this month. 
Also, I found these wooden bowls for $1.50 and $1.25 respectively and the little basket for 50 cents.
And my little son is well trained to find awesome things, LOL. He said, "Mommy look this",  and when I turned around he has this pewter beauty in his hands. Great find for a 4yrs old kid.
Finally for a total of $ 8.90, I found this wooden items and now I am woking with their makeovers.

Bye, bye and see you soon,
