Biggest Yard Sale!!

Great Find!!
Couple weeks ago I went to the Cumberland Fairgrounds in Cumberland to attend the "Biggest Yard Sale" in Maine. My husband, Russ, and my sister, Adrianne, went along, too. We had great fun checking out all the stuff we could have bought, but didn't... We did find some great stuff that we did buy... Check it out...
   Adrianne found this great Coke box for only $12.00. She found it under another box that was broken. She was lucky no one else found it...
Repurposed furniture
   A number of booths had furniture that had been worked on and painted. It was really great to see people reusing items and not just throwing them away in some landfill somewhere. Wish I could have used them, but alas I have only so much room.
Lovely furniture

Loved this booth!
    Some booths were really full of great things and some were not anything I was interested in. I did end up buying a lovely bowl and a wooden hassock that goes with the Adirondack chairs that we have outside. Russ found that for only $3.00. All in all it was a lovely day for looking.
Neat, huh?
   I wish I had bought this architectural piece, but she was asking $18.00 and at that moment it seemed like it was too much. Wish I bought it now.. Oh well...there's always next year.
