Estate Sale Finds

I'm running a week behind with sharing my junkin' finds, but I still wanted to round them up and get some pictures before I packed them away.  Some of them will be headed to the August opening of The Paris Flea Market, and others just might be living with me for now.

Not a bad haul for an estate sale I wasn't going to attend.  I arrived two hours after the start
 of the sale and was kicking myself for not going out earlier because their prices were so reasonable.  I have visions of all the stuff that got away.

Advertising hangers from right here in little ol' Tracy.  Notice the paint splattered bench under all the stuff?  I forgot to get a lone picture of it, but it looks like years of yummy paint buildup.  I'm leaving it just the way it is.

When I opened up this children's Picture Word Book it put a big smile on my face.

I love the baby shoes and will probably end up planting these just like the last pair I found.

No frog should be left behind, even the grungy ones.

This Western Electric Company phone weighs a ton.  Unfortunately it doesn't work, but wouldn't it be fun just for display?

Last but not least, a pair of Syroco wall sconces from the early 1960s.  They were kind of an ugly, flaky, shiny gold mess when I found them.....nothing a coat of paint and a little distressing didn't cure.
