Clearing Sale; Part 2

Hello fellow treasure hunters, hope your weekend has been wonderful!

As promised, here are the little treasures that we did manage to buy and fit in the boot.

Chicken feeder and 2 steel sieve tops. Mr T wants the feeder for his chickens he desperately wants, but I have other plans. The top sieve thingme is going to hang on the front of our shed.

Some Australian pottery pieces; 2 MCP (modern ceramic products) wall owls c1950 and a Diana daisy pattern wall pocket c1930.

3 wool bale hooks. I had to battle a dealer and a farmer (who wanted to use them) to secure these beauties.

Mr T's buy of the day, a Ryobi blower/vac for $2. When we got home he tells me its missing a piece and will cost $100 for the extra part....What?? For now it will remain a blower...haha

And the very best buy of the day.....this Victorian print with a folk art was love at first sight! The wooden frame is covered in a mosaic of old ceramic/pottery transferware and glass pieces (closeup at bottom). Its a beauty and only $2, would you believe? Could you also believe that I was the only one interested in it?? I know! I was sure I would have a bidding war. Or do you think it is a piece of tat??

Our lots didn't break the bank as we spent $69.50 all told.

A great day out, fresh air, sunny skies, a country drive and a few treasures to bring home. What did the weekend hold for you?

Hi Tam..great little day in the country..perfect! I'd have to go with the white chippy paint cabinet? as my fav I'd have to say. You certainly found yourself an interesting piece with that picture...early mosaic style frame. Even back then someone couldn't bear to through the pretty bits away eh. OOo & she's holding lily of the valley yum! Have a good week. Much love Catherine
