School Sales are the Bomb!!

 Band Hats.  I bought 3.  Aren't they cute?!
2 boxes of 'junk'
 Auctioneer said there were shears in the box and no one was bidding past $3.  So I did.  Got the whole lot for $6.  And yes, I know these aren't dressmakers shears but aren't they cute?  They fit in quite well with my collection of scissors.

 Box of cute paper clips.  Big Sister promptly confiscated them.
 Stainless measuring scoop.  I know I will find a fun use for this!
 Large old beaker.  Love this.  Can't wait to put some LONG stemmed plants in here:)

 Pyrex.  Made in the USA!!!!!!!!
 Old, BIG, glass funnel.  And the crack the auctioneer thought was in this??  Not a crack at all but a line from the mold. 
 Very cool old wood and metal school chairs.  Awesome.  Love these!  Thanks to my hubby who nabbed them from the buyer who only wanted the plastic ones in the lot he bought.  $3 for 4 chairs.  You know what these things would cost new????
 Hubby bought the band saw for $35.  He was rather pleased to put it mildly:)
 Lockers.  I am so in love with lockers.  They are just so cool!  Vintage, metal, cute, practical, organize, storage.... How can you go wrong??
 Interesting to load.  Praise God for kind people willing and ready to help.
 Loaded and ready to head home.
 Ahhhhh.  Now that is better.  You doubt?  Let me show you...
 This is after.  I know the room is not finished yet but this is still SO much better.  Just look at this before pic...
 See that jumbled up pile of coats, toys, buckets, etc....  Some of the toys went into the IKEA organization system in Middle and Little Sister's room.  And now I don't have to look at the coats, boots, hats, jackets, etc. that I tried to organize neatly with just an open shelf and hooks.  Now to just finish drywall and floor and get that cool sink installed!  Add some open shelving above the sink and fill the selves with cool storage bottles and I will be in laundry heaven!!

 Little Sister was so excited to have more lockers!  She tried to put her purse in as soon as she saw them but I made her wait till I had washed them out.  Once they were in place though, this was the first thing to reside in our 'new' lockers:)

Brass stencils and all the white letters below, thanks to Andrea who nabbed them in the nick of time!  She got the table and all the stuff on it for $17.50.  We split the stuff.  Fun fun!!
