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.
