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.
