Interesting yard sale item

You never know what you will find at a yard sale.

I have a slight twinge of regret for not buying this work of art. Such a creative use of old refrigerator crisper trays.

I have no doubt that I could have found a use for this beauty, but this work of art had a price tag over $100 and I couldn’t work out exactly what I would use it for…. so I gave it a pass.

Of course now, as I look at the photos, I can think of many uses:

  • Storing things like garden gloves and hand tools
  • Plant labels
  • My garden planning notebook
  • Garden shoes (in the lower bins)

It would also look good outside with potted herbs on the top shelf. Oh well, even though I gave it a pass, it is fun to look back on the photos.  I wonder if anyone bought it and what they are using it for.

Have you ever passed up something at a garage sale, estate sale or thrift store that you wish you would have bought?

Sincerely, Emily

    That does look interesting but I would not have wanted to pay the price either! Nancy

    The trays look as if they are enamelware. That is all the rage here at the moment. Old pieces are selling for quite a sum at antique shops. Those big ones would fetch at least $50 here. A lot of restaurants are using enamel jugs for water.
    It could have been a talking point but others might think it a pile of junk!! I think you made the right choice.

    • Hi Christine. Yes, they are enamelware. Interesting to hear how popular it is in your area and here I am, over here, posting a picture. It is such an interesting piece. I loved all the enamel refrigerator crisper drawers on it. I think I would have just liked to buy those. They certainly would come in handy carrying things around inside the house and out in the yard. That is what I was attracted to – memories I guess.
