The other day on my weekly trip to the dump I came home with these little beauties.
For the grand total of $7.00!
I actually had picked up a shovel that had been there for some time looking all crusty and worn and thought I may as well bring it home and do something with it.
The guy sold me everything for $10 but as I was loading it in the car he came back humbly apologising that he had sold me the shovel that belonged to the dump and the Boss had seen it and wanted it back,
so he took it back and refunded me $3.
I think he actually wanted me to take it so that they could get a new one- but the Boss was too eagle eyed!
The tray has a bit of rust so it will be blackboarded.
That long this is a surveyors measuring stick and pulls out to about 14 feet, how cool!
It just needed a clean up- only when I stated to wash it the numbers started to run so I quickly stopped and will just give it a few coats of sealer before passing it on.
This Christmas wrapping paper is still in the plastic and in my preferred Christmas colours of red and white!
Don't you just LOVE that mirror!
She may be staying with me- don't know if I can part with her!
The light shade, which to me looks like a heat lamp you would have for chickens, is now a shiny black.
The guy at the dump also threw in some pieces of scrap wood and
B4 managed to bring home a foosball game for free as well,
I am sure we are his best customers!
