The Red Barn sale never disappoints.
This year I came away with a few fun finds. I'll show you what they were and then tell you why I look for these items at sales like this.
Cute retro hard covered books are always useful in decorating. Sadly others agree so sometimes they are expensive. When I see a pretty one that's cheap I snatch it up!
I use these vintage cans as pops of colour in my kitchen.
You can put a pot inside with a cute plant or just leave them empty.
Do you ever find you don't have enough serving utensils when you host?
When I see some pretty pieces being offered up for $2 or $3, I grab them.
You know I love trays. To corral items, to inject colour, to use when serving.
When they're Hudson Bay trays, I love them even more!
Cute little stools are always handy spots for plants or to set a drink.
Often you need to add height in decorating so this is an easy way to lift something up.
I use lots of blankets around the house for colour and as fillers. Wool blankets are especially fitting for my living room look but they are so expensive. So when I find one for $10...it's SOLD!
And they there are those extra items that just catch your eye or fit a need.
I got these 2 suitcases to use as a coffee table with my new couch. I haven't decided how to set them up at the right height yet so for now one is acting as a side table.
And finally, my favourite, the unexpected find.
This is my very favourite treasure.
It was $5 and honestly I feel so excited about it.
I can imagine it in so many spots!!
I realize it looks awful now, but once I've chosen where to use it
and after it gets a make over, it will be fantastic.
What would you do with a $5 black metal hanging shelfy rack?
