~North Carolina JUNK...we got it!~

I hit the Junk trail early this morning to make a few deliveries and pay a few visits on my day off.... It did not take me long for the JUNK to start oooozing out of my packed car!! I had intentions of being back home in 3 hours (yeah right)... well that quickly turned into 7 hours of JUNK COLLECTING! I decided to pass on the Big Antique Expo that everyone came to town for, in return I hit the little shops out in the middle of no where land that no one knows about (and I did not know about until today)! Keep in mind I spent a whopping $126 bucks on this load of goodies! The pics are quickies, I am sooo embarrased to pull it all out in the drive, I know the neighbors think I am a nutcase! Not only does she hoard it but now she is taking pics of it all, I can hear them now!!

Those Old Signs... I am in LOVE with them all.... keep or sell??? Tough decision!

Vintage sacks, Vintage Jewels... Love it all!

Little Chippy stool...a must have!

This was not a today find .....but is this a great old sign or what??? Yep from the Sleepy Poet. It is still in the garage because it weights a zillion pounds, no dragging this baby out for the pics!! She stands about 5 ft tall!

OMG...loads of old numbers.... the little on man on the side of the road gave them to me for a steal!!

And more #'s and signs... I think I may have to pay him another visit. You know I got 30 mins down the road and wished I had not left a few of them behind, does this happen to you?

Well enough Junk until next time. I have ventured out and opened a 3rd booth at The Depot, so new booth pics coming soon! Blessings, Janna

Great Finds! Looks like you had a fun and successful trip!

Kathy said...

Janna - you found some great stuff...and for a bargain too - woohoo! So sorry to have missed you this weekend - but planning on a Charlotte trip for next year already. Loved The Depot and Sleepy Poet.

I know what you mean about wondering what the neighbors think... Photo shoots in my driveway are a common occurence too! (I guess I'm "cheap" entertainment!)

Have a wonderfully junky week!

Wow you did haul it in didn't you. A third booth- I am jealous. I'd love to be able to afford a second booth so I could move in there..maybe later though.
Love it all - tammy

OK, plans are made, I'll be at the Depot on the Friday after T-giving and Sleepy Poet on Saturday!! Hope so much to see you, Rachel, and meet Beth at one of the two places!
Can't wait!!!!
