Since the yard sales from my last post weren't spectacular, Mr. VJIMT was itching to go junking. Unfortunately, I was bogged down with some freelance work and couldn't break away, so he went by himself, which I'm sure disappointed him terribly.
I still got stuff -- and didn't have to move a muscle -- as he saw some things he thought looked Etsy-ish.
Like this avocado green owl cookie jar. I don't like avocado green OR owls (discuss) which of course he knows, but they are BIG sellers on Etsy. So that's where this guy headed.
This deer planter is much cuter, in my opinion, but also headed to my Etsy shop.
As well as this pair of Victorian milk glass candlesticks.
He did get himself some things. Like another group photo (of a school orchestra) to add to his collection.
And this great old metal sign.
And this amazingly colored rusty metal bucket.
I know you want an extra close-up of the rusty yummy goodness.
Also this giant metal hook -- it's about a foot wide.
And these red architectural pieces.
How cool is this big yellow metal gear thingy? It's huge -- about 20 inches wide.
He found these way cool scroll-y architecture pieces, and talked about making them into a base for a table.
Personally, I think he's been watching too many episodes of Picker Sisters. Which I don't care for much, except for the part where the sketches animate. I won't go into the annoying banter of the hosts, how contrived the show seems, or how ridiculous their "junking" outfits are.
He must be seeing something else, huh? [insert sarcasm here]
But I digress. The next day, he found this image on the Restoration Hardware website.
Talk about having the eye!
