Today, Tony and I took off early and found some really great items at estate sales and a few garage sales. I am most pleased with the rugs I found at an estate sale. Both are Persian rugs, with the original labels on the back. We paid $10.00 each!! Both rugs are in super clean condition. The women we bought them from said they belonged to her grandparents. Her grandfather was a pilot in the Air Force and traveled a lot. She thought they had them a long time. Doesn't really matter what the age is to me anyway, I just love that they are perfect for our home.
This one is perfect for our long hallway. Cookie Crumble, our calico cat loves it. As soon as I laid it down she pranced back and forth walking slowing and enjoying the soft nap. This one measures 3 x 10 ft.
At the same sale we found this bookcase for a mere $10.00! Tony has a collection of steins and has been looking for a cabinet to put them in but didn't want to pay a lot of money. He was shocked that I got this for $10.00, and I didn't have to negotiate to get it for that price.
And my final purchase was this new garden hat for $1.00.
We had a great time and came home with some fantastic bargains.
