WOYWW # 321 Treasures found

I fully intended to post these mug shots days ago and shoot my desk as is yesterday but, I have not been upstairs since sunday evening
and so,  these are last Saturday shots. if you want to play along with us this blog hop starts here at our hostess Julia's blog.
.
 So, last Saturday we did the usual out to breakfast then to some yard sales. and we hit an unadvertised sale at a baptist church down the street from our house. ( all of these stamps were 8.00 together) ( I have to go through them, I think they are mixed sets most the little ones but, they do have stamps in the box I do not own so, they were worth the 2.00) the photos below are closer looks at the stamps. oh yeah the postage stamps were free. they were in a pile of stickers right next to the stamps haha. and also found at this same sale was the green vintage metal table with no top on it and two side chairs for 30.00. ( these are heavy and not at all wobbly like some of what is coming out now trying to pass as garden furniture) Hubs is taking the table to work and going to put a piece of expanded metal into the table.



 so, we are pretty excited about this, have been looking online for months at metal "bristo" sets thinking it would be fun to eat dinner out here in the pergola when there are days with less bugs...

the other chair.

Hi stacy, that furniture looks wonderful, and as you say, finding some with a bit of solidity to the build ids not easy. What a fantastic collection of stamps you found there, well done you. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #7 xx

Oh double happy day! The bistro set is divine and I couldn't agree more about the flimsy metal being used now...and the shocking cost! What a great find.
Great collection of stamps for eight bucks too, gracious the PSX teddy bear image would have been $10 even back in its day!

Love the new bistro set. I bought a middle of the road bistro set--not the cheap wobbly stuff but no the big $$$ high end. We've had a good decade now and it is holding its own which under the brutal Arizona sun says a lot. Great batch of stamps and the price was so right! I'm sure you'll enjoy those. Some of my favorite stamps are the older wood mount SU ones. Thanks for the visit earlier. Judy #50
