~HOLD ON.....I gots more JUNK!!~

~NEW ITEMS TAKEN TO THE SLEEPY POET 08-15-09, BE SURE TO STOP IN AND TAKE A PEEK IF YOU ARE LOCAL!!~ I have a ton of new booth pics... that is where I spent my Saturday, I will hopefully have them posted Sunday sp be sure to check back! Ok ... back to Friday... Well.... I finally made it home for the evening, I was out of work this morning at 11:30 am sharp!! And the Junk Journey began. With an hour side track to have the Junkmobiles oil changed.... I was 3000 miles overdue!! I can never seem to slow down to take care of the important things, believe me it tore me up to have to sit there for an hour while my car was serviced!! Thanks to a cell phone call from Joy the Savvy City Farmer (you gotta check her blog out if you haven't already) she kept me at least talking about the junk while I waited!! Look at the finds today.... I was on a tight budget today. Lots of good chippy finds!!! All will be available soon at The Sleepy Poet or you can email me sjbaker@carolina.rr.com if there is somthing you gotta have, I will ship and I do accept The Paypal!!!

Lots of GOOD Goodies today, I fell in Love with the Chippy wood Tool Box!! Old Tarnished silver frame encrusted with Rhinestones a MUST.... Not to forget the Rusty White Metal table!! The Chippy White wood table above is a fabulous-o find, it it has three glass pieces that sit on the wood on each shelf and the best thing was it was ON SALE and it was already priced to go w/o the sale!!

Got my hands on this little chippy dream Cupboard, needs a little work... I figure a chicken wire door that can serve as a note holder along with a new handle and it will be ready to go!!

Found this great old set of Letter Blocks and adorable rusty file basket!!

Old Chippy Tin Cream Frame....
~SOLD~
Thrift Shop Goodie, this was the last stop of the day.... I about had an asthma attack when I found it and saw the price...I for real pushed and dragged it around the store with me, I did not even get a buggy when I went in because I really did not think I would find much in this place, NOT, I DID!! Then I thought she did not ring it up but it was half the price tag!!!!! Holly Moley!!! It was practically FREE because the door would not open, I had to have it....just look at the original Chippy Cream paint!!

Perfect Turquoise Patina on the Old Rusty Handle..... Hubby already grinded on the latch a little and the door now opens and closes perfectly, just needed about 5 mins of work!!

Well..... I think ( a junker never stops looking) I am done for the weekend, I have enough junk to last me for a while, now I have and to get ready for the booths, unless I run across any Saturday Yard Sales!! Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend, get out and JUNK!!! Blessings, Janna

She shoots...she scores and the crowd goes wild!!! Great deals...cool stuff! I'm looking for 1 of those rusty file baskets...bought 4 of them for a display @ work and now need 5...they worked great for showing off our new stationery products, and the matte metal finish does not compete w/the bright colors of the merchandise. If that one you found doesn't find a home soon, I may be interested in it. I'' be 2@ my fave thrifts on Tuesday...I'll check back, okay? happy Sunday *elaine*
