Fun Finds Friday

I had a happy Friday this week! Look at my treasures.  I can't tell you which of my finds this week I like best!

I love the little blue Samsonite.  It really helps round out my collection of vintage suitcases, but I can't honestly tell you whether it's the actual suitcase I'm so in love with or the vintage Southwest Airlines bag tag!  Since I work for Southwest when I'm not off at garage sales or repurposing some items, I'm a little partial to all things Southwest.  It was a little more than I normally spend on suitcases - $5.

I found two really fun vintage spice racks.  $4 for both!  I have plans for these babies and can hardly wait to get at them.

I don't know what that heavy metal foot thingie is, but I like it.  I imagine it had something to do with shoe cobblers.  I seem to be in a foot frenzie lately.  If anyone knows what that is, please advise.  I really liked it and it was only $2.

The clock is vintage-looking, but it's probably just from World Market or something like that.  It needs some work and I'm thinking about giving it a remodel.  For $1, if all else fails I will salvage the cool hardware on it.

The last thing I found was a little jar for .75 cents.  I can always use glass jars.

All this for less than $13.  Since I'm way under my normal garage sale budget for the week, I think I may have to go splurge on a frozen yogurt!

Hope you have an awesome week.

Happy Thrifting!
