I've had some good luck with garage sales the last few weeks.
This was my favorite find from yesterday. It is hard to tell from this before picture, but the top was pretty scratched up and the little decorative finial had been chewed by a dog or something.
It's hanging out on my mantel with my owl cookie jar and my little white milk glass vase collection.
And I got this milk glass candy holder yesterday for $1. When Chris and I were antique shopping later in the afternoon I saw one almost just the same for $16!
One more thing (sorry bad light in this picture) - this little cabinet was only $5.99 at Goodwill, it was pretty messed up with the veneer peeled off the top and ugly knobs. I painted it and found some extra vintage hardware leftover from other projects.
It makes a great little cabinet for the kids' VCR and DVD player and with space for movies below.
