We look forward to the Bryn Mawr neighborhood sale every year. Probably because it’s the first big Minneapolis neighborhood sale of the season. And also because we always come home with a truck load of goodies.
This year we had the truck filled by 10 a.m.
Now most people might have called it quits when the truck was full, but not us. We are gluttons for punishment. And sad thing is, we found almost nothing else after 10 a.m. We may as well have gone home and taken naps after that.
But still, it was a fantastic day. We are more than happy with our finds.
It was a vintage luggage-palooza! All of the suitcases came from one sale. These days prices have gone up on vintage suitcases. Sadly, I think the days of finding them for $3 each are long gone. But this seller gave me a package deal on 4. Now I have to decide, do I leave them as is, or do I paint them? Any thoughts?
I know this dresser and desk combo will be painted! No question there. It’s just a matter of what colors. I won’t keep them as a matched set. If you’ve read my blog for long, you’ll know that I am opposed to matched sets of furniture. Likely these two will go to separate homes, and they will be painted different colors.
