Yard sale exploring

What’s a good way to spend a sunny Saturday? At a yard sale, of course.

We checked out this sale at Trinity-Bellwoods Park today and it was definitely a good place to find unique vintage furniture for low prices. Of course, it’s only good if you’re willing to put the work in after bringing them home (otherwise… sorry, you’ll have to try IKEA).

Chests of drawers like these could be beautiful statement pieces – with a little creativity and TLC! Imagine what they’d look like with a paint job and new knobs from, say, Anthropologie.

This beautiful typewriter would be stunning on a bookshelf or extra desk.

We also spotted some knick-knacks that could be interesting pieces for the kitchen…

Have you ever scored something awesome at a yard sale or flea market?
