More Junkin' Finds

What a week it's been.  I have no idea what made me think I was all ready for another antique show this Sunday.  I still had a load of stuff stashed in cabinets and boxes waiting to be priced; stuff I just never got around to pricing before my show two weeks ago.  That's what I've been up to all week...pricing and replenishing my jewelry inventory for the Lodi Antique Street Faire.

I wanted to share some more of my estate sale finds from last weekend.  All of this and more (yes, there's still more) was from the estate sale where we spent two hours on Friday.  I was so good about sticking to my game plan and only buying the small stuff.  I really don't have that much control, I just didn't have my truck with me.

Some of this will be coming with me to the show on Sunday, and some of it (the frames and shelf) will be getting a paint job before their debut.

Old hangers are always on my list.

I'm thinking ASCP Duck Egg blue on the shelf.

Excuse My Dust.  I'm always saying that and couldn't resist the book when I saw the back of the dust jacket.


The green lunch box will most likely get planted.  It's hard to see the old table top ironing board, but it will make a great display shelf.  I almost passed it up because of the awful original cover that was hanging on by a thread.

The Knudsen Creamery box weighs a ton and it's already packed up with stuff for Sunday.  I think I grabbed every little pulley they had in their garage and then I quickly found the rusty old baker's pan to hold them all.  Eighteen yards of old jute webbing made me a happy camper.

Can you imagine selling something so sweet and personal?  I'd like to believe that Jan Marie's baby cup didn't belong to one of their family members.

The weather forecast is calling for temperatures around 80 degrees on Sunday, and this awful wind we've been having should calm down by Saturday night.  It will be a long, long day, but it's always a good time.  Hope you all have some fun things planned for the weekend.

  3. You did great! That baby cup is precious! Wondering if the children's hanger was also Jan Marie's?!

  4. Poor Jan Marie! Just discarded like that. I got all excited when you mention Lodi until I realized that it's not the one in Ohio (and if you would ever see the miniscule size of Lodi you would understand that it was pretty silly of me to think they were having a street faire). Love that lunchbox, it will make a cute planter.

  10. Another show? Wow...you are one busy lady! And you still had time to shop an estate sale? I'm loving that oval frame in the back of the top photo...of course, I also love the wooden hangers, especially the child's hanger. 18 yds of webbing...you scored!!! Great job!!!

  12. More great finds! I have a soft spot for those hangers, as well. Good for you on looking beyond the tattered cover on that ironing board, it's a perfect color. Good luck with the sale!

  19. Shows are so much fun. I don't set up anymore but I tell people it's like a carnival or circus family everyone watches out for the other dealer. I always loved seeing the dealers season after season.

  20. What treasures! So just what is a "Delineator" and why would I need a cookbook for one? What are you going to do with the pulleys -- I know, so many questions!

  22. I wish I had been at that estate sale! I passed up so many shopping opps this weekend because my tabletop is still full of stuff from LAST weekend -- so, I know exactly how you feel!

  25. Oh man, I am completely jealous of all your amazing finds! I so would have bought all of those things had I come upon them. Great finds! Way to go and thanks for sharing so that I can clean the drool off my keyboard, lol. Hugs!

  26. What fabulous treasures! I know what you mean with the baby cup, I once found a vintage sterling teething ring at an estate sale that I couldn't believe no one in the family wanted. I love the little child's hanger!

  27. I also went to a few estate sales. There is such old stuff from the 50's and that reminds me of my childhood! It's a good thing, evidently, because I seem to want some of that stuff. It's a sweet, sad feeling. Anyway, about the baby cup... my sister just sold, on Ebay, her kids' baby rings.I remember those rings, too. But she's on an Ebay jag so she's just going through her house and putting everything up on Ebay. Well, I know the young people like my daughters don't really want that kind of stuff to begin with. C'est la vie!

  28. Hi Betsy, thanks for coming by and leaving me such a nice comment. I replied but always forget to use the actual reply button. Anyway, I'm in awe at the stuff you got. In awe! Oh my goodness. It's all so intriguing. The lunch box is great, the book with the quote is so cool. I have a sticker off I got off our old water heater that says something similar about freedom and the American Free Enterprise system. Cool! It does help to have limited space to transport stuff so you don't go crazy. Looks like you got plenty though, and all worthy treasures! Woo hoo! You guys have great stuff where you live!

  30. I know art shows are hard, but yours looks like a lot of fun, and when you make sales, I guess it's all worthwhile!

  31. It's sad to think that poor Jan Marie's cup was not kept along the way by a family member. when I see something like this I always wonder what their life was like. You found some really great pieces. Love all the rusty pieces and the green lunch box. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration over at Sunday's Best!
