Even though it's been a really mild winter here on the East Coast, the junking opportunities have been pretty slim. No yard sales or flea markets, of course, because even a mild mid-Atlantic state winter is too cold to be picking outdoors. Estate sales have been few and far between as well.
So we've made a few day trips here and there to alleviate the cravings. Last month we took a ride to Pennsylvania to check out the Quaker Antique Mall in Quakertown, PA. Mr. VJIMT swore we had been there before, but it didn't look at all familiar to me and it usually comes right back to me as soon as I set foot in the door. It's quite possible he was there without me, as he did have a junking life wayyy before he met me.
Only got a few things here, but the place was big and it was fun being somewhere new.
Yes, Shiny Brites. The guy was practically giving them away. I like the boxes, even though they were written on.
Big white and blue truck (from the same dealer) to use as Christmas decor. And a lone bottle brush tree to load into it.
I got a boatload of stuff at another new-to-me place -- The Factory, in Silverdale, PA. It was new to Mr. VJIMT, too. We just happened to see it listed when I googled the area. This turned out to be one of my favorite places, one we will definitely return to, as it had three floors and great prices.
How cool is this yellow metal phone? Can't decide if I like it better than my red one, but it also got confiscated before I could list it. She's got good taste, anyway.
Not too bad a haul for a gray winter's day!
