My Rusty Find

October 21, 2013

Hi, sweet friends I am back with another great Saturday find.  This has to be one of my all-time favorites!  I have been looking for a scale for a few years and I finally found one at an Estate Sale.  Don't get me wrong I have seen these all over the place but they always had a hefty price or missing a part.  When I tell you what I paid for this beauty you are going to fall off your chair.
Are you ready.....drum roll please.............................................$7.00!!!!

Right now I have it hanging off the crown molding in my kitchen.  

It says capacity 20 lbs.
I think that will hold a lot of apples 

I love the rusty face 

And the green patina on the side

Hopefully, it will have a home in my kitchen hanging on a proper hook and not dangling from the molding.

Wow! What an awesome deal and fun find! I've been eyeing an old grocery store scale (big and very heavy) that I thought was a deal at $100. But, I haven't gotten it because I'd much rather find a deal like yours. Even though it's smaller. How fun! I love the shape of the buicket/container on the bottom too. I'm so excited for you! And, your find encourages me to keep looking and not give in to the big, $100 one. :-)
