Hello, everyone! Want to see what I got at last week’s Trash to Treasure sale? Let’s take a look, shall we? Last year I purchased smaller things so this year I wanted to purchased a few good pieces with some history! Since I still had some money from my birthday last month and I have a 25th wedding anniversary in a few weeks, I wanted to get something that I would keep. I think I found the perfect piece. (If you missed last week’s post on the sale, click here.)
This is what I found! The label stated that it was a plantation desk and since I live in “Plantation Country” and I love history, I decided this would be that one special piece!
I just LOVE it! It looks really good in my office on that huge baluster table.
I think I’ll use it to store some of my genealogy papers. Hey, my husband had some plantation owners in his family maybe this came from on of theirs! LOL! We’ll never know!
Another piece is this HEAVY old tool box!
I’m loving the old wood! A few other things I got were…
This cute cheese and cracker server. After I washed it up, the “Cheese” came off but that’s alright! Some votive cups and a vintage tablecloth were some other finds.
A bright and beautiful crawfish platter! A nice lady in front of me in the check out line told me where I could find matching accessories if I wanted them!
A few clear acrylic clam bowls and some crawfish spreaders to go along with the seafood theme. I got a few more odds and ends and even went back on the 1/2 half day. As soon as I got in the door after they opened, I headed to the art section to grab an Audubon framed print but someone beat me to it, just like the chair I told you about in my first post. I love my finds and am already looking forward to next year!
Thanks for stopping by!
