~Saturday JUNK & Wrong Exits!~

Saturday JUNK is here and it's hot....Literally!! I don't know why I had to have the white chippy shovel, I guess because it was $1, hehehe. I traveled near and FAAAAR today. I am pooped to the fullest. On my way home I knew I must have been getting tired because I took the wrong exit off of the Interstate not one time but TWO!!! And.... did not realize I had done it until I was all the way done with it!!! Am I all JUNKED out??? Holy Moly!! It has been a long over the top stressful week with my day job so a day of Junkin by myself may be what a girl needed. I wish you could see the Old White Metal Ship Mirror upclose in the back of the first pic, it was a Super Duper find. I had just paid the old man for the scales I got from him, saw that mirror going out the door...had to have it but I had only $3 bucks left, he just wanted me to take it and pay him for it later... well what a sweetie but I was 60 miles from home had never been to his place don't know when I would make it back to pay him, he reluctantly took a $8 check made to cash, yes $8 bucks I could not believe. Heavy old chippy painted steel!! ~It's all For Sale, Junk Market OPEN for business, if you see anything you are drooling to have just pop me over an email for pricing, sjbaker@carolina.rr.com , I will ship it to you wherever and I LOVE the Paypal but will take whatever you got... checks or moneyorder!!!!

Old Igloo Cooler and Old Glass Barbers Jar a must have!! Even though I don't have a clue what I will do with the Igloo it sure was darn cute sitting there in the mud looking at me, oh yeah mud, it seemed to pour rain ever place I went today!! My friend at my first Junk stop knew I loved the #'s so he had pulled them out and had them waiting on me!! I love it when they know what you like and sit it aside for you!!!!

Lots of good chippy finds today. The old white mirror almost too hazed to gaze into anymore... I think a great transfer with an Inspirational thought will look great!! Architectural pieces were a plenty today!! ~Columns-SOLD~

This is my Favorite find of the day.... Look at the Crusty Old Box... The Name plate has the best old metal letters ever!! Never thought I would have to travel over 100 miles from home to find this sucker... all I can say is LOVE whoever L J Hash is!!



Old American CHIPPY Scales with a hint od Red and Turquoise and Rust.....


I got a hold of the Old Mini Wood Bowling Trophys this week..... I have never seen any of these in my days of Junkin!! ~All Pins SOLD~


Are these litte thingys not the cutest?? $5.95 each. I have 7 of them...

I found these adorable metal #'s in a Thrift store today, they were part of an old calander, I knew instantly they would be perfect for creating Junk Jewels!! Trashed the rest of the calendar!!

Well I have had my dinner and a shower, of course I am a Southern Redneck Girl so I have to go watch the race with my Hubby!!!! Blessings to all for a fabulous weekend, I will be out in blogland tomorrow seeing what all kinds of junk you all have captured this weekend!! Tootles and Hugs! Janna

Gretchen said...

Wow, Janna you found some great treasures on this junk shopping spree. How fun are your finds! Love the mini bowling pins as they remind me of my maternal grandparents. They were bowlers and had lots of these, but not sure what ever happened to theirs. Kind of sad. They mean so much to someone at one time, and then become cast offs only to be found my a beloved junker such as yourself there to rescue them once more. ;- )
Fun post-

Karen Valentine said...

Hi Janna!
I'm curious to know what you want for those two white posts. (I'm having a brain fart and can't think of what they are called!) I'm at work and don't have email here, but will when I get home. Can you email me and let me know? Thanks so much!
