*****Junk Huntin in Asheville!*****

So I get a phone call from my friend Wendy......"I've got the bug...we have to go shopping!! " Well like any good friend would do I agreed to help her out (LOL!) and we planned a trip....to ASHEVILLE NC!! If you aren't familiar with Asheville, it's home to the Largest House in America... Biltmore House! Been there ...done that....it's the antique and junk shops that get me back there! Take a peek............ The whole she-bang............................. letters, bins, chair, table, tin roof tiles, tool box...it was my day to find metal stuff for sure!

This old cupboard is from England and made of slate and wood and H-E-A-V-Y!!
My fav find is this rusty, crusty old metal drawer with porcelain top!




Net old file drawers...look great stacked on top of each other...........

Love the old red roof tiles AND the neat red flag numbers??? Well they are from England as well and I was told they are part of an lawn golf game! Neat-o! What did you find this week???

You deserve a MEDAL for all those METAL finds! Wow!

But do I wish I could find some good stuff like that. Where do you go to find such good things like that. Here in Virginia, I just go to thrift shops. I don't go to garage sells cause most of the time there isn't really to much goodies like that. I'm hoping to get down your way during the summer. Just love your finds.
