An Overdue Junking Fix

I finally had my first good junking fix in several weeks.  A long overdue visit back to Morrow's Salvage at 2784 W. Main in Medford, Oregon was just what I needed.  This place is always such a treat with three floors packed full of vintage treasures and the most creative displays.

Isn't this the sweetest camper?

Loved this old built-in set of drawers.  I'd have every one of them stuffed full in no time at all.

You'll miss too much if you forget to look up.

What can I say? 

A vintage Pepsi cooler full of Victorian ridge caps.

I was so proud of myself for having so much self control, but here's what I had to have:
I was happy to discover that they still had more of the green architectural pieces salvaged from an old bridge;  the ones I bought last summer sold right away.  The pretty glass light fixture cover looks more like a cloche to me, so that's what it will be.  

I couldn't leave without buying a pile of these fabulous Victorian ridge caps.  These chippy and rusty tin pieces added charm and decoration along the roof line of Victorian homes.  I'll have fun playing around with them....I have a few ideas about what they'll become.

These are going in my jewelry project pile when I get back home.
