The title of this post will be a pun for anyone who lives near me, as our local newspaper has a massive 'for sale' section called 'the weekend shopper'. Its like Craigslist but not on the internet. I think.
(Why is Craigslist actually called Craigslist anyway?? I never have understood that).
Anyway, this is just some of what I (or should I say, Sue and I) bought. There were a few more furniture pieces bought, including a solid cedar table and a 1920s ironing board, but they went home with Sue so unfortunately I can't show them off.
Vintage cane breakfast tray. It needs a bit of a clean up and a couple of coats of varnish, but not too much work really.
A couple of childrens school cases. These sell like hotcakes even in this condition. I don't know why, maybe its the nostalgia value?
Cane screen or room divider, I like the style on this one. As you can see its currently a wierd yellow and white, so will need a total respray.
My one purchase for myself, a piece of blue Lewbury, YESSS!! It needs a clean but is in excellent condition, and at $20 was a major bargain. I saw a similar piece in green in an antique shop last week for $165.
Biscuit barrell, be gone! New piece now in situ in the kitchen, I'm loving having all this matching stuff.
