Thrifty Finds

Garage sales, thrift stores, freecycle, I love them all! You never know when you're going to find that awesomely cool [whatever] that you didn't even know you needed until you saw it. For me, that awesomely cool thing was this:

What is it? Only the cutest toy box I've ever seen! It's a little rough around the edges, but nothing I can't spruce up. It's so random, I love it! The only place I have been able to find anything similar is in New Zealand, and those pigs aren't nearly as cute. This one is made of thick, durable plastic, and it looks vintage to me. I got it for only $3! Score!
See? Even cute from behind!

Next up, this little booster seat for the dining room table. The fabric was so gross that the lady hosting the garage sale gave it to me for free! Off came the fabric, and now I've got a great little booster chair. While scrubbing it I discovered that it reclines and the seat raises up. :)

Last, I got this cute little cart from my local freecycle. It was headed to the garbage because of a crack, so I saved it, repaired it, and now it's ours. A cool thing about this one is that the basket has a handle and can be lifted off and carried separate.
What have you found lately?
