~Saturday's Thrifty Chippy Goodness!~

Well I set out early this morning on my search for some good Junk.... I am opening up a second booth inside The Sleepy Poet tomorrow. I am still undecided on the the type of booth I am going to design up for this spot.... but I am thinking maybe more dark colors tied in with a little white. We will see tomorrow I guess....I never know until the last minute. I have not really even decided on the pieces I am going to take..... Boy I am flying by the seat of my pants on this one! Anywho I did cone across a few good treasures on my hunt today. My rear is definitely numb from driving! Odometer reading 232 miles when I pulled back in the drive a little bit ago! However, I did come across a new Antique Mall and it was awesome... packed full of vendors and super cheap prices... that will be another secret spot that I share only with myself!! Good Junk is getting harder and harder to come by, I am finding that straying a little farther from home reaps good STUFF!!

Lots of chippy white on the path today.... the old Farm Table was a great find... not dinner table sized.... so I am thinking a great piece for the Bed or Bath room.... The old little wire mail baskets were one of my favorite finds! Kathy, this table may be one you are looking for!!

The most adorable ever chippy child's rocker..... Normally I don't buy these but this one was too cute to leave behind!!
Awesome big old tool box... Amazing condition, the old saw tucked inside is in perfect condition. Even complete with it's on little removal tool tray!
I hope everyone has had a great Saturday.. the drive today was beautiful... Fall was in the air today for sure!! My Hubby works every Saturday so my Junk trips I usually make alone... but....a good country drive clears the mind! Glad you stopped by to peek at my Saturday Yummy goods!! If I survive the booth move in tomorrow I will be sure to post some pics for everyone to take a peek at. I have a few goodies that I junked up on Friday but they have already made their way over to the booth, I will grab a pic or two!! Blessings and Hugs, Janna

You just find the bestest stuff ever:) I can't believe you drove that many miles in one day! Sounds like something I would do. I have been thinking about opening a booth at our local antique mall but still not sure. It just seems like so much fun. Since my Sister's house got flooded a week ago.. I haven't had time to think about anything but helping there. Love all your goodies and have a blessed day!

Jenny said... the table, no way to ship it to AZ. But it's always fun "shopping" vicariously on your blog!

You did some mighty fine shopping today! Found, bought, photographed and blogged about - all in a mere day! You are an efficient junker.

Great finds, and it takes a dedicated junker to travel the distance, and isnt it worth it!!

I love the chippy white table. It's beautiful! Love the wire baskets too. They are gettin tuff to find!
Hey, guess what? I think I have a perfect match to your lamp. That metal one on the table? Mine is original I believe; Unpainted, it's more of a brown, but says aladdin on the bottom. Does yours say aladdin?

Great finds!

I guess it did pay off to get out of town. Good for you! I find it very hard to find anything around here in white.

Lovin' it!!! Maybe its time for another mendor call? hehehe (I am assuming your garage is filling up again? just kiddin')

With all these great treasures, I am sure that they are selling as soon as you get them into your booth!

Have a beautiful week! xo...deb

Now you know I love the old tool box! Gosh, I have been going all day long! I had a yard sale today, but just a hand full of people came :-/. I cleaned out and got some stuff out for the Poet, some for the apartment and the rest is heading to the GoodWill! Talk to you later....Ra
