Have you ever been so excited in your life to find that perfect item that's been rolling around in the back of your noodle?
A long time ago, on a website far, far away, I spied a VERY cute idea.
This was MY very first time seeing a vintage shopping cart in all its face-lifted glory.
Jenny Doh's cart.
The idea seed was forever planted.
You can be inspired too...
IF ONLY I COULD FIND A CART TO CALL MY OWN.....Where would I EVER find one??? And if I did ever find one, would I be able to afford it?
Woe is Me!!!
Then it happened.
I hadn't been to my local Salvation Army since Christmas! Yeah, I couldn't believe it either! Amazing what happens when life gets busy. Huh?!!!
In I walk. Say hi to all my S.A. peeps. Laugh about where I've not been.
Then, I spy.
How cute is this?
All four wheels work? CHECK!
Folds up nicely? CHECK!
Price? CHECK, CHECK, DOUBLE-CHECK!!!
$ 4.95 !!!!!
I swear my heart was doing the HAPPY-DANCE....
Sure, it's a little tarnished around the edges. And it could use some vintage metal wheels to replace these plastic jobbers. BUT....
With a quick coat of paint and some embellishments, it could be this....
I found this one online here:
It's picture #5 in the slide show section....
How cute is this Aqua one?
...and this cute one from Vintage Trifles.
Now, I just need to get busy. Painting. Designing. Sewing. Embellishing.
pssssst....Even though, my "treasure" is still in it's "trash" state...I'm linking all these beautiful carts to REINVENTED's Trash to Treasure Party!
