Thrifted Laundry Cart

I have had a laundry cart on my list of things to find for quite some time.  While out shopping thrift stores one day, I happened upon this beauty being used as display to hold other items.  I immediately wanted it and asked if it was for sale.  The shop owner said it wasn’t:(  I asked if she would like to sell it and she said sure:)  So I quickly unloaded the things she had in it and move it to my car, before anyone else asked about it.
Right now I have it loaded with quilts but I can think of so many other uses for it.
It’s on wheels which makes it easy to push around and the basket portion lifts right out of the frame if you want to use the two pieces separately.
 it was certainly my lucky day, I just love it!!!Linking up with

  7. I love it! I would have done the same thing, maybe even begged for her to sell it:-)
    You were in the right place at the right time. Thanks for sharing this.

  8. Oh you were lucky to find that! Those are all the rage now. I like how you used it for your quilts. I wish I had a large laundry room and that all my bedrooms were on the main level so I could just collect clothes and roll them down the hall in one of those nifty carts. Instead, I have to lug a full hamper down a huge flight of stairs to the lower level laundry room. Yuck! Just dreaming!

  9. I really like the quilts in it. Congratulations on your find!

  10. This was indeed a must-have! Love that it is in two pieces and the color is perfect. I think your quilts are wonderful…the little paisley print is very fun. Hope all is well with you and you are having a good week. ~Ann

  13. Beyond cool…. And with wheels, even better

    I love the vintage laundry cart, my grandma has one of these and I remember her pushing
    it down the little sidewalk behind her house and hanging the clothes on the line. I did get it when she passed, but over the years it was thrown away. I will now look for another since I’ve seen your blog.
