Weekend Finds: Friday Night Rummage Sale

Yellow compost bin | redleafstyle.com

This weekend I went to Kansas City’s First Friday event, an art walk held once a month in the Crossroads Arts District. In between checking out the art galleries, I came across a rummage sale. What luck! There’s nothing I like more than rummaging. Besides maybe the word “rummaging.” Rummaging. Rummaging. It’s an excellent word, no?

Anyway, the rummage sale was held at Broadway & Penn, a local vintage-inspired clothing and home décor store. It was like an upscale garage sale. And of course I found a few goodies.

Here’s what I found:
Metal two-tiered basket: $10
Yellow plastic compost bin: $2

This metal basket is exactly what I’ve been looking for to hold fruit. We eat a lot of fruit. And I’m always moving bowls of fruit out of the way in our tiny kitchen. Now all of my fruit can live in one place!

It’s so funny sometimes how you can find exactly what you need at secondhand sales. For weeks now I’ve been thinking about how I needed some sort of bin with a lid to keep my compost in. But I’m too cheap to buy a new compost bin. When I came across this yellow bin, I knew it would be perfect for composting. And at $2, I had to have it!

Imagine me walking around a crowded arts district carrying this yellow bin. I have no shame when it comes to good finds!
