Big time score

I got the best deal this weekend at a yard sale.  Sometimes you just have to dig to get what you are looking for.  I found an antique laundry basket on wheels.  I spotted these in a few decorating magazines and for sale on the web but I didn’t want to spend a lot of money.  I got this baby for $4.00.  Yep, I said $4.00. 

I think maybe this was one of the best deals I found this summer.  The lady that I bought it from said her mother had a laundry shoot in her house and this basket caught all the clothes at the end of the shoot. 

She estimated it to be at least 50 to 60 years old.  SWEET, I love it.  Right now I’m using it in my laundry room but I may have to find a more creative use for it. 

Any ideas from my blog friends would be appreciated.

It would be super cute in a bathroom with towels in it. You could also use it as plant stand!!

Wow - what a lucky find for $4! I found one of these earlier this year sitting in a lady's yard. She let me have it for $25, still beats the price of an antique store!

(and thank you for stopping by!)

What a fun find! It might be fun to use as a party cart with a cooler in it for drinks, or with a tray on top for snacks.
