  1. Eek–those wigs! Great finds, Lora! I look forward to seeing how you use the piece in your hallway! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!

      Thanks, Cecilia! Yes, I need to have some driveway project days!

  2. Great finds! I love that chair. My garage currently has a set of tall caned dining chairs, an outdoor wicker sofa, and a random bentwood chair, all of which local people were giving away for free in a Facebook buy/sell group I follow. Now I need to find time to work on it all.

      Those freebie finds sound wonderful, Danielle! Now that the weather is nice, I’m hoping to get some furniture projects done, too!

  3. Hand up for me!
    I usually need hubz to help me lift things and while he is at work is curb side shopping prime time lol but he and I have found many things some needig tlc but many in excellent usable condition as was.

      It’s mind blowing what people throw away, don’t you think? I’m pretty glad they do, though;)

    HAD to stop by and say hello to a fellow LORA! We are few and far between! Lol.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      You are so right, LORA! I usually try to say hi to the few out there, too! Been stopping people to spell my name right my whole life! Thanks for saying “Hi”!

  5. Please girl… have you seen my garage! lol!

    I love all your finds and I’m still just in awe that you can find that kind of thing on the curb!! We don’t have that here!

      Garages aren’t for parking cars, are they? And I held myself back from many junking days this year…too much temptation!

  6. Love your treasures; I will NEVER have enough bookshelves and can’t imagine making one smaller! I would fix these up and put them on Craigslist (in Maine we have a site called Maine Yard Sales, too) if you don’t have room for themt; 1) make a few bucks without booth rent, 2) show husband these had potential *and you were right) , 3) have more money to go thrifting! Win-win-win in my book! Or enjoy them in your home for a while, then sell them! Did you salvage the wigs; our local cancer center uses them. Or after a good wash, they’re always good for Halloween!

      Love your advice, Kathy! Don’t exactly know what happened to the wigs…
