I am drawn to glassware whenever I shop, whether it is in a shop or at an estate sale. This weekend, I hit a few sales even though the weather was gloomy and rainy. There weren’t too many people out because of all the rain, so I figured most sellers would be willing to deal a little more than usual. I think I was right. I got all of my barware for a total of $8.00.
I found three different sets of barware at the same estate sale.
This is one of nine margarita glasses. There were ten, but klutzy me broke a stem when I hit it on the sink while I was washing it.
This wine glass is one of eight and has a square base. Unlike the margarita glass, it’s quite heavy because it is lead crystal.
Even though the picture is blurry, you can see the stem details.
Mr. Sullivan recently brought this chest home from the store and it became the perfect place to house my new barware.
This is the painted detail on the front of the doors.
This is the front of the drawer with its sweet leaf design.
I found this heart table at a garage sale down the block from the estate sale. It is probably a piece from the 1980’s when hearts were all the rage. But at only $2.00 and the investment of a $3.00 wooden piece to cover the heart, plus some spray paint that I already have, it will make an excellent accent table for one of the back patios.
I found this $1.00 blue wicker trash basket in perfect condition at another garage sale, but it doesn’t fit any of the colors in my house, so it will be spray-painted white. For some reason unbeknownst to me, the basket looks a little wonky on the bottom … might be my picture taking skills?
I came upon this rustic twig camp table at a barn sale. It will find a home in the laundry room as a plant stand. It’s sturdy and just needs a dust-off.
