Tuesday's Treasures... Craigslist Freebies!

I was up late on Sunday night and happened to be browsing craigslist. I always check the Free section first and then move on to my town and then anything else I might be looking for. I spotted an add in the free section for an end table, I clicked on it and saw a small gateleg table. I immediately emailed them and in the morning I got an email back, I was the first to reply, yay! When I went to go pick it up, I wasn't expecting this perfect little(smaller than I thought, and I LOVE it) antique table. Isn't it cute?! I have it sitting in front of my medium size gateleg table so you can see the size comparison.

I have no idea where I am going to put it, but for now I'm just so excited to have found such a sweet little table for free! Have you ever seen such a small gateleg?
The older gentleman had just sold his house and he was clearing things out. He offered me this old(like 1940's old) mixmaster mixer by sunbeam. The thing needs a good scrubbing and I probably would have passed on it if I hadn't seen him pull out the two milk glass mixing bowls!! The mixer itself has all the parts, the booklet, and a cool glass juicer mixer that attaches to the side. And this was all free too!
So there are my treasures for the week. I'm skipping GW this week because the huge lions club yardsale is on Saturday and I'm hoping to bring enough home from that! Not that I need anything anyway, but maybe I'll find treasures for my etsy shop that I just won a Makeover for!!! **** Jumping up and down ***** I'm so excited! I'll share more of that tomorrow.

Have a wonderful day,
