Autumn Inspiration {Day 20} ::: Trash to Treasures

Autumn is a great time to enjoy all the yard sales on Saturdays. {a.k.a. Garage Sales, Tag Sales…..}  It’s also a great time to find fun things just driving down the road!  So many people clean out in the autumn—someone’s trash might be your treasure. 🙂  We’ve made it a game—-when we put things out by the road for trash collection, we make a bet on how long it will take for someone to come by and pick it up before the trash truck can get to it. ha!

Try it this weekend—-check out some of your local yard sales, flea markets, etc.  You never know what you might find.  Here’s some fun things we discovered on one of our jaunts:

These skis were left out as trash—we nabbed them.  They are the same kind of skis in which my grandfather use to ski and compete.

I love this birdhouse made out of old violin parts…..

A stack of vintage books to turn into vintage book bundles…yay!

This great crock with ‘2’ on it….I love this!

“Chatterbox” — 3 of them from the 1920’s

A great script from the 1930’s

This fun, little game table that folds up for easy storage….made in the year I was born.

And this great Canada Dry crate.

What have you found lately in unexpected places?  {Don’t say your keys in the fridge……..} 🙂

Head out to a yard/tag/garage sale this weekend and see what you can find!

Happy Hunting~
