Friday's Find #206

Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! You know that feeling you get when you head to your favorite thrift store and you spy something tucked away that seems to be waiting just for you? Of course you do! Well, then you know how I felt when I scored this large vintage chalkboard for $1...

Yep, $1! It reminds me of an old school chalkboard and you'll be seeing it again soon ;) Next, I headed to an estate sale where I found this 1948 Scrabble game board. It's in great condition and I've seen the boards used for retro decor and even mixed media crafting. Available

At the same sale, I scored this vintage enamelware tray. It cost me a whole dime! Isn't it perfect?

The last two items are yard sale finds. I love this chalkboard container just as it is--no makeover needed!

Last but not least, a gorgeous round teak tray. It's quite deep and I have the perfect project in mind. Stay tuned--I'll be sharing it Sunday!

  1. You've got some great finds here. The scrabble board is a treasure.

  2. Love that chalkboard. Seeing your great finds makes me realize it's Saturday morning and there are some great finds out there waiting for me at garage sales today!

  3. Love your finds this week! I picked up a large chalkboard for a $1 too, awhile ago and I just picked up a 1948 Scrabble game with all the tiles and stands. Both are keepers for awhile!

  4. Great finds Cecilia! Looked at your Etsy shop too...looks like you're coming along selling those various things you've showed us before. If that enamel ware tray is as big as I think it is, I have one exactly like it. It came out of my dad's medical office, so good chance yours did too. Love the Scrabble board! I'm going to take a look at the dates on some of mine! Great find on the chalkboard too!

  5. A whole dime for that enamel tray?! What a bargain!

  6. Great finds! That scrabble board would look great hanging on a wall in a game room or kid's room.

  7. Love the enamel tray so much! All great finds but that chalkboard for $1...SCORE!

  8. Great finds Cecilia! Love that scrabble board. We have an old one that we still use. That enamel tray for a dime is a real bargain.

  9. Love the enamel tray ... would fit right in with my collection. Of course, you paid too much for it!!! haha !

  10. Hey, wait a minute--that Scrabble board looks like the one I grew up with. Oh, yeah, that would make it vintage, huh? Your tray looks like it could use a short, squat base under it--like a pillar candle holder?!? I love my Howards Restor-a-finish on anything wood--it covers a multitude of sins (small nicks and scratches) and leaves a nice low gloss shine. Will look forward to seeing what you do with it.The enamel tray would make a great tablescape base.

  11. Great finds, Cecilia. A whole $1 for the chalkboard? Whhhaaat? I need to come visit so I can go with you to these sales.
    Trying to catch up after being gone for the week. Hope you've had a good week!

  12. Great finds, Cecilia! I'm always thrilled to find chalkboards!

  13. Chalkboard are always awesome! And I love that enamelware tray! Great finds. xo Kathleen|Our Hopeful Home

  14. Love your finds, Cecilia! That chalkboard and teak tray are both pretty fabulous :)

  15. That enamelware tray for a dime is my favorite and I am anxious to see what you do with the teak tray and scrabble board. Thank you for sharing at Snickerdoodle.

  16. Fun finds... We have a couple of those old Scrabble games... but we still play them... and found them at garage sales. :)
