Treasure Hunting in Michigan

My children and I have a wonderful tradition of spending one weekend a month across the border in Bay City, Michigan.
We live 20 minutes of the US Border and have been enjoying this get-away for almost 7 years.

This weekend I took in a few garage sales en route!

Our starting point is Port Huron.  From there we jump onto Highway 25 and travel up to Bay City.  This has got to be the most beautiful stretch of highway.  The State has the road so close to Lake Huron that you get a wonderful view of the beauty of the water and all the activities that takes place on it.

I got this gem for $0.50.  Cleaned off the cobwebs and she is as good as new.  She serves as both a decor piece and of course, as a stepping stool for those hard to reach shelves.

This lovely creative piece for $5.00.

This cool pitcher $2.00.

Put them all together....and you've got practical meets pretty!

I love my weekends in Michigan....looking forward to my June visit!


I will be showing off my treasures at these parties!

  1. That chair/stepping stool looks like it's in great shape! What a wonderful find.

  2. Great finds Diane! What a fun thing to do and look forward to each month. Are you all settled into your home now? Blessings, Pamela

  3. LOVE your fantastic finds. AND your tradition of heading south once a year...My Mom is from as north in Maine as you can get and when we visit our family up there we do the opposite of you, "We head north into Canada". Being a stones throw from the border is fun! I LOVE your step chair, My grandmother had one of those in red and I grew up LOVING to sit on it. It made me feel tall, hehe...
    Thank you for sharing...
    Have a wonderful week,
