Last week was a fun one in junking land; a flea market, a church rummage sale, and a lots of yard sales on the weekend.
A church rummage sale started that same night at 6pm. They gave out numbers at 5pm, which I didn't know about. All that number did was get you down the stairs 10 seconds before the rest of the crowd, although I guess every little bit helps!
I got this at the rummage sale; I thought Mr. VJIMT could make something out of this old window frame. He likes when I give him projects.
A church rummage sale staple -- vintage Christmas tablecloths. They have some issues, but I couldn't pass them up.
Saturday featured a local town-wide sale, a (different) church yard sale, and a few other stray ones thrown in for good measure. We got lots of good stuff, although our buying was interrupted with kid dropoffs and pick ups throughout the morning.
But you know it's going to be a good day when this is your very first score!
I'm not sure what I liked more, the cat snoozing in the sun or the desk. Sadly, neither came home with me.
What we did get: a big set of flash cards, vintage tins, an aqua coffee pot, blue Christmas ornaments, a mid century condiment carrier, a miniature silver Christmas tree, and a fine piece of religious foil folk art. All heading to Etsy!
And… a slate chalkboard, an red easel chalkboard (took the legs off to get it into the car), a wood shelf (another project), and a tin ceiling mirrior.
And look at this GIANT bench for ten bucks!
One more project!
But wait, I'm not done yet! A flower painting, two toolboxes (perfect for holiday decorating), and giant spoon (font?) thing, some flower frogs, a camera, a book on raising dogs, and an aqua jeep.
I told you it was a fun couple of junking days -- hope the rest of the month is more of the same!
