Thrifty Trip Tuesday #11 - Lynn Fern

Thrifty Trip Tuesday #11

I seriously can't believe we are already taking another trip...   The weeks just seem to fly right on by.  I guess when life has been so busy this is what happens.

As I take you to another thrifty trip, I will be sitting on a train NYC bound for a breakfast with the Benjamin Moore folks.  I was so lucky to have been invited to the 2015 Color of the Year unveiling.  Insert major squeal here!  I am so excited to be one of the first to see the new color!  If you follow along on Instagram or Twitter, I promise you will get lots of sneak peeks.

This week I am taking you back in time...  (between my stomach tests, my trip to Colonial Williamsburg and my projects for my booth I've had little time to make it to any great treasure hunting spots).

I found an ad on Craigslist of this big estate sale in one of our neighboring towns.  There were a few pictures, but the description was one that I just felt I couldn't pass up.

I left after I dropped the girls off at school and headed over.  I was about 30 minutes late to the start time, and I will tell you when I drove up I thought I was done for.  But, alas there was a ton of stuff to dig through.  And, it was the sale of sales!!

Gigantic Tents set up with loads of goodies...



Take a peek for yourself -




Here are the goodies I came home with!


Fun shaped shutters.  I will be using these in my house soon

Great cupboard that is sitting in my living/dining area painted red


Super cute little bench


Pie safe

Great crates


Lovely pyrex

I am planning to make a table with these





This now sits in my bedroom.  i love the color, it works and it is super powerful

This was by far one of my all time favorite estate sales.  I could've come home with a ton more stuff.  And, I've yet to find another as amazing!

I hope everyone has a lovely week.

With much love, peace & happiness
