~Sunday Junk & Booth Re-Do Pics!~

Finally I have a few Sleepy Poet booth re-dos.... I headed up today to put in a few new things...well good thing I had already taken these photos on Saturday because the Market had a terrible flood from a heavy rainstorm. I went in to find the back of the market, my booth included under about 2 inches of water!!! So I moved it all to higher ground, Servpro was pulling in as I pulled out so I am sure it will be back up and ready for shoppers Monday morning.
Here are a few of my favorite things I snapped some pics of for you... and it's all FOR SALE, if you see somthing you like, just shoot me over an email for pricing, is my link.
Old Tarnished Silver base with Glass Cloche w/ an adorable knob on top!! ~SOLD~

Sunday JUNK finds... all except the Rusty table, it was found a few weeks back!!

Old Chippy Spools and Big Ole' Dice.... ~SOLD~

Lots of Old Silver to be had today, I especially am in love with the Daily Bread Platter, never seen one like this. The old Silver Bowl is an old Golfing Trophy from a Georgia College!! ~Trophy Bowl, SOLD~

Porcelain Lotto #'s , they were a great find!!! ~SOLD~

What the heck is that....scroll to next pic to see!!! All I can say is I am in love with it!!

Holy Moley, I tore a little of the rubber seat loose in the store and just knew it was all good underneath and boy was it ever!!!! The best old BIG Spool, Chippy White w/ a hint of Turquoise and Peach...I hardly ever tell what I paid but this freakin thing was only $.80 cents!!!!

Old Glass Decanters and Tarnished Silver were a Saturday find but standing at the register at the thrift shop today I looked down and there it lay the Intimate Home book, GREAT BOOK!!! Had to get it along with the other goodies!! ~Ultimate Home Book,SOLD~

Fabulous Thrifty Good, was stark White, all it needed was a little tweeking and coat of stain...I bet it will take a week to dry...It is S&S....Stinky and Sticky it is!! ~SOLD~

Too die for Black & White Cow Tag necklace I made up this morning... $28.95.

Remember the old Medical Cabinet?? Well I finally got it in there. On the first trip the darn thing locked the doors on it's own, everyone in the market had a go at it, no luck!! Had to bring it back home, drill out the locks, attach some old crown medallions to cover the holes...then back to the Poet!! ~Black Iron Stand , SOLD~ ~MEDICAL CABINET- SOLD~

When you're showing great junk, it's never too long...maybe too short! Excellent finds!

Woman, you have more junk than I do, and that's ALOT. I always love seeing all your finds! Hope nothing was ruined in your booth due to water.

I'm so glad you found/followed me, so I could return the favor on your lovely site!! You are the junk finding queen girl!!

I'm amazed. I get to go antiquing for the very first time in about three weeks, and I'm so excited.

Any good tips? I am sure I can use them!!

Janna, I just love you style. The ice cream bucket under the chippy lawn chair is fabulous! That is a old one... I had a lot of fun looking at all of you treasures. Our thrift store in CA are to expensive to buy for resale. Sorry about the rain storm making it into the store, what a job moving all your things....rain, rain go away! Sandi

Jenny said...

The things you find are always amazing. You have a real knack for display, too. As a true junker, you might like seeing some of the pics on my latest post about shopping in Baltimore. You could supply many of these shops for years to come! Ever think of branching north? Ha!
