Garage Sale Find

I got this old metal baby buggy for $5 at a garage sale. The old man having the sale said he took off all the material and padding, and put on a wooden box to use around the yard as a trolley of sorts. I plan to put it on my porch and decorate it for the seasons. Any other ideas? I'm also wondering how old it is. He was so excited to show me the brake, lol. He also thought I was nuts for wanting it, lol. One man's trash.....

Oh Michelle, I remember those old baby carriages. I remember all the mother in my neighbourhood having one.

I think that it's the perfect thing to decorate for the seasons and occasions.

Love, love, love it! Pumpkins and Indian corn for fall? Ooh, now I want one.

My mom got a baby carriage like that for me when I had my first. It was quite fancy from the 50's, but yours looks a bit older! Much more "country" styled and it will be darling on a porch with seasonal goodies of all sorts! Have fun with it!

Mums, gourds, for fall, and you could do lights and greens for Christmas, I can see it with fresh greens and pinecones, and some red berries. I love it.
