Flea Market at Columbus 151 Speedway

J and I went to another flea market over the weekend. This was at Columbus 151 Speedway.

Here are my treasures...

Grand total: $61

If you I wondering why I bought so many bottles, this is why. I found this inspiration from my new favorite website Pinterest.

Mirrored Shadow Box - HospiceCare Thrift Store

I was so excited. I could buy a $25 gift card to HospiceCare Thrift Store for $12. I wish I would have thought to buy two. I ended up spending the gift card the day I bought it. I found a mirrored shadow box. At least, I think that's what to call it.

There is even a date on the back - January 13, 1955.

Can anyone offer any insight into this find? Maybe what it's called. Or how much it might be worth. Thanks.

Bike Rack - Self Construction

So you've seen the talents of myself, my mom, and R. Now I would like to showcase M. He presently lives in a condo and needed an affordable efficient way to store his two bicycles. He found a DIY Bike Rack on Lifehacker. The total cost came to a mere $12 or $13. I have such amazing friends! 

*Tip: If you have the time and talent, or even a friend with the talent, find plans and make your own. Materials are much cheaper than paying for something already made.
