Fun Finds...

It's been a beautiful week here~ look at our lovely bridal veil bush in full bloom...

It's been perfect weather for going out and treasure hunting!  This week I've found some unusual and interesting items!  Most of these items will be heading for Junk Bonanza in September or our etsy shop!  One of the more unusual finds was this lot of about 100 vintage grocery store price stampers!

I'm going to give the set a good cleaning and they will be ready for artists or collectors!  Look at this fun lot of tins, funnels, and a vintage lunchbox...

and these vintage button cards, box, tin, and little hourglass style piece~

There was a box of vintage hardware and fun little wheels, some brushes, and old file box, and a great tin litho adding machine!

Look at this fabulous old 1872 Atlas...

it is loaded with some wonderful old maps...someone had used parts of it as an old scrapbook, so it is suitable for dismantling...

There was this great industrial drop side office table...

a fun rusty little wheel rim...

some naturally shed deer antlers and a big vintage oyster tin...

I loved this slide box case- it has such fun dividers...

Here's a vintage mailbox with a fun industrial look...

and a cute child's peg desk~

Finally, there was a lot of four 1913 store signs- they had some damage, but I loved the graphics.  Look at this one featuring Paris...

Later this week, our town is having city-wide sales!  The weather is looking great, and I can't wait!

  3. You got some great stuff! I have no idea why, but antlers are really hot right now! You can't sell them here in SC. Weird, huh? I wish I knew more about antiques. I probably come across big money makers all the time and don't even know it! I love everything you got!

  4. Oh, that Paris store sign! And love that old mailbox. You found some wonderful things, love the mix! Your bridal veil is gorgeous, we had one at another house and I so miss it this time of year.
