During week two of Town Cleanup, I got just what I expected.
You see, Town Cleanup covers miles and miles in my little corner of Upstate New York. Some areas have lots of potential. Other areas, well, not so much. Last week’s area was a classic case of not so much.
In fact, this area tends to be far more trash (the icky gross kind) than treasure. This was all I found (that was worth picking up). It’s a little cabinet with a chalkboard insert. It’s not old and is made of MDF. I will probably try to sell it somewhere this summer.
Instead of driving around in futility, I decided to stick closer to home and I accomplished quite a bit.
I washed all of my linens from last week’s haul, including this Mid-Century bedspread and curtains.
I went to a garage sale, where I came across these cute vintage Italian Christmas lights, which I swear I saw at another garage sale last summer. I almost bought them then but I didn't and later regretted that choice. So now I have them (until I sell them on Etsy).
I photographed some of my other recent finds:
From a rummage sale: the world’s longest white planter and a Mid-Century recipe holder.
From an estate sale: a big box of reflectors and some of the first ornaments of the season.
Which included these extra cute Shiny Brite diorama-style ornaments that I think I’m keeping.
Yep, definitely keeping.
From the little thrift shop that's too close to work: some miscellaneous Christmas stuff, including two large flocked deer and two small dopey-looking plastic deer.
I also photographed lots of millinery flowers, which are coming soon to Etsy.
And that’s it.
But don’t worry about Town Cleanup. I’ll be back at it next week.
