Yard Sale finds this week

Saturday morning I was first at the yard sale of my neighbor. First thing that caught my eye was this set of braiding tools. Not sure how they work but it will be fun to try. It looks like I have a braided rug in the future!

This chair will be perfect in front of my serger after I recover the seat. I fell in love with the carved rose in the wood. Someone said it might be tiffiny but it's not. It's a Tell City chair. I did find a set of 6 on line for $850.00 so I do think it's worth a lot more then the $5.00 I paid.

This little maple box caught my eye and I filled it with necklaces of pearls and crystals for Crazy Quilting. Someone said it looks like tiger maple and if so it's worth some money. It does appear that the top is tiger maple wood. The design goes right through from front to back.

I love the box. I love polished wooden boxes and drive Mal mad when we go to junk/charity sales looking for them.

Braiding kit sounds cool, I once got a hammock kit and it was a blast making a hammock. I always fall out of the darn thing ;) I often browse the free online garage and yard sale site Garage Sale Home Page and find great deals.

Good luck
