~Some New Junk Goods for the Sleepy Poet Booths!~

Finally pics of some new good JUNK!! It has taken me forever to get this post completed!! I hope you all had a fantastic New Year and are now ready to get back to the JUNK????? I have been so out of the loop that I forget to snap pics of it all when I haul it in, so here are a few pics of the new JUNK in the booth! I did manage to grab a few pics out in the garage of a few pieces I have just brought in....Unbelievable....that almost All the Farmtable have sold, I had been guarding this old greeen chippy table in the gargae. It had been in one of the old General stores in Waxhaw NC back years ago. I hated to send it to the booth but you can see it went.... it has been the best workspace ever, I will miss it!! And with a removable top too! Now available at the Sleepy Poet, $425.

More new Goodies made their way into the the Poet yesterday....

Packed full and ready for buisness!!!

This find was my day after Christmas JUNKIN surprise!! Is it the best or what?? It needs a little TLC but it is going to be fabulous soon!

I always will have a soft spot for old frames, window paynes and chippy shutters. The glass panel I had my eye on for 6 months, finally the price was right!! It took long enough to bargain them down on it!!

OMG, the Old Transitor Radio..... was a Friday Yard Sale find!!! Perfect display piece, just the right patina to it, check out it's old Dial. $15 bucks!! I about peed my pants!!!

I ended up trading this out with my friend Rachel yesterday. Too die for chippy!! And the back of it ... Chippy Turquoise, Thanks Rachel!! It will be perfect in the new Venue ...The shops at Gibson Mill in a few weeks!!

This cutie I know is rough... but I could see the potential, can you?? This is another I had been eyeballing for months! My friend Wendy over at Southern Comforts in Concord NC made me a deal that I could not resist. If you are local to the area you have to check them out, Southern Comforts located on Church St in Concord. Once you visit you will be addicted to their cool chippy rusty JUNK!! OMG....NOTICE how close to the door that piece is..... I have the gargae packed tight, I think I may be looking just plain TRASHY up in there!!

I wish you could see the pale green on this old HEAVY Farmbench, another great after Christmas find from my friend Carolyn of Decor and More, another fab shop in Concord!!!
Now ...back to the booth pics... That old desk was a prior Sleepy Poet find months back, It was a stark heavy white! I could see the potential and the old alligator crackling paint underneath...Once I started sanding to my surprise was an old dark turquoise paint shining through. It turned out better than I could have ever imagined!!

I am in love, it turned out Spectacular!!

The old chippy glass panel did makes it's way in to the Poets booth yeaterday as well, perfect piece for hanging! $58.95. *Oops, just checked online sales, it has SOLD*

The Old Chestnut Cupboard is perfect to display those old No. Cannisters!

Oh how I still love all the Tarnished Chippy Silverplate and old metal rusty file boxes!
This adorable Grey Primitive table was yet another goodie from Southern Comforts in Concord!!

Yet still more Old Tarnished silver, chippy cream paint and crackled Ironstone!
Believe it or not I still did not get all of the new pieces in this blog. I am going to keep you in suspense a little while longer! Definitely more cool JUNK to come. Thank you all for stopping in to visit! Thank to all my blogger buds for your comments, I read each and everyone, you all are my source from inspiration, esp when I have those days that I want to throw in the towel! I know you all must have them too!! Thank you all for inspring me!! Blessings and BIG JUNKER Hugs, Janna

I love your stuff. I am planning a trip South and can't wait to visit your shops. The "old" canisters took me by surprise. I bought some like them new and still have them in the pantry. I thought they can't be that old... Then I realized they are close to 40 years old.. I guess I just didn't want to think about it.

Janna, the green farm bench is great. I love the storage shelves underneath. So many storage and displays could go underneath. Very unusual to find.

Prudence said...

Sometimes I hafta wait and wait for you to toss up a new post with all your fab new junk, but it's ALWAYS worth the wait! I can see about a half doazen things I'd run down to your booth to grab if I lived ANYWHERE close!

My shops are doing well, online moreso than the local one. Such is the economy. Sounds like you're doing GREAT!

Miss Mustard Seed said...

Fabulous stuff! And what a beautiful booth. I don't see how you can let go of it all. There are a lot of perks to buying and selling, but letting things go is sometimes hard for me.

The Green Pea said...

Hello Janna,
I must say, you find the nicest cubbies, bird cages, benches and stuff that I have ever seen!!!
When my daughter lived in NC we went to a outdoor show in Liberty and I could not believe all of the cool things there. You are fortunate to have those old wooden cabinets all around you. It is hard to find them in CA. Keep warm! sandi

Anita said...

Oh, that birdcage is awesome. Hope you are well. I wore my necklace today when substitue teaching and the kids (high school) cracked up! Anyhoo, I am having a giveaway so come visit!
