Found in So. Calif. Can you believe it?
My neighbor took me to some garage sales yesterday. Didn't find too much except some really nice avocados 3 for $1, a couple of aprons for $1.50, and these!
I held up one and asked the lady "how much" since there was no price on them. She said $5, so I thought $10 for the pair. I showed my friend and she said take it over to her and ask if she would take $3. I carried both skates over and asked nicely, and she said "those are pretty old, they belonged to my Aunt". I said, "Oh, maybe I shouldn't buy them then, I just wanted a pair to paint a design on and hang on my door for Christmas". She said "I think that would be a great way for them to be honored" and sold me the pair for $3.00! I couldn't believe it!
I know some of you have painted skates before because that made me hunt for some a year or so ago and I couldn't find any. Any tips for me? Do I need to spray on a matte sealer first? Should I spray paint them? I've got lots of Christmas designs, just have to pick a good one for them. I'll probably google painted skates for some ideas too. If you've painted any, I'd love to see what you did with your's.
