~~~JUNK from the TRUNK!!~~~

PLEASE TELL ME that I am NOT THE ONLY ONE who drives around with junk finds in the trunk of their car for a week (or more depending)????? I better get some comments on this one or else I will feel totally embarrassed. I have had a ton of stuff in the trunk since I got home from Ohio LAST WEEK and just finally today got some of it out in my booth at the Poet! Felt good I gotta tell ya....HOWEVER ....it is filled up yet AGAIN!!! UGH.....what is a junker to do???? Can you just imagine if I had my CDL and could haul an 18 wheeler around???? Oh the fun.............anyway here are a few junk finds pics for you to peek at! Want somethin????? Could be yours....just an email away! I didn't realize I didn't know how to spell gauge until I was trying to write the description on the dang price tag! Well I wound up having it wrong after like 4 attempts and had to rewrite them all. I should add here that I was THE SECOND GRADE SPELLING BEE CHAMPION in like 1975 ...oh yeah...won a Spiedel bracelet and everything...thank GOODNESS I didn't get THIS extremely difficult little bugger..all my fame and fortune would have been only a dream..................lol! UPDATE...CLOCK...SOLD!!
Mercury glass candle holders .....LOVE THESE! They rode home with me all wrapped up cozy inside the vintage bread box they are standing on! The vintage cigarette and cigar cases have the perfect look....chippy, shabby and both with CROWNS! Too die for right????

The tarnished silver wins me over every time and if I let myself I could go nuts buying this all up whenever I see it.....SO to help avoid getting tarnished silver overload, I really have to LOVE LOVE LOVE the piece in order to give it place in the shop or booth. This tray is a GREAT example! UPDATE...COMPACT ...SOLD!! FOOTED BOWL...SOLD....CRUMB CATCHER ...SOLD!!!

Shabby, rusty vintage TURQUOISE LICENSE PLATES from Maryland....wish North Carolina's were this cute......................

Okay, now this was not in the trunk BUT I knew you'd like to see it...shabby chippy white on the outside, chippy peely turquoise on the inside...YUMMY! Mr. OTM'S window house WAS in the trunk however BUT only for the trip to the booth. Okay....well that does it for this post....remember..PLEASE don't leave me hangin ......Do y'all carry JUNK IN THE TRUNK????? WINDOW HOUSE...SOLD!

I am always too excited to leave my loot waiting in my car.... I have to get it all out as soon as I get home and admire it all over again!


Cat Nap Inn Primitives said...

well yes I do..but not the kind you are carrying..I do like yours way better..:)

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

Oh yes, I have junk in my trunk, too....and sad to say, I carry it around for awhile as well. My hubby growls at me for that....haha.

Hey, I DO see something and was wondering if it is for sale. The clock face in the first photo. Is that old? Would you mind emailing me at www.sweetcottagedreams1@comcast.net?

Thank you!
I love the junk you find! T-t-t-totally my style.

The junk in my trunk is with me every day, every night - I just can't get rid of it. The" trash to treasure" junk in my trunk doesn't stay there long - I am always too anxious to show my finds to my dh!

Love it all, can't wait to get back over and rummage through it all! Janna

Karen said...

Well, I can't say there's junk in my car trunk - but right now unfortunately there's junk in MY trunk....lol

Love what you dug out!


cityfarmer said...

I have a little Honda CRV, so it's there for everyone to see. I keep plastic tubs of smalls with me at all times, that way I can replenish my small spaces with whatever I happen to have on hand. Handy, but somewhat unsightly. Works for me.

UPON A HILL said...

Don't really have any junk in my trunk, but I like your junk; nice junk!

kim said...

Hi Beth ~ Thanks for stopping by my blog, I love when new people find me & leave a comment.... Now I know where your Great Blog is~ My answer to your ??? is YES ~ I have lots of my treasures still in the trunk, I would hate to say how long some of them have been there.... I think sometimes they stay in "That Staging Area" till I have an actual place to put it~
I will be back

Candy Allen said...

Being an Ohio girl, myself, I will admit to having junk in my trunk periodically. (Like right now maybe). So happy to see you're selling your wares. I hope to soon as well.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks so much for coming over to see me...XXXX

and love every minute.

Nancy said...

Love all your "junk"! And yea, I have stuff in my trunk for longer than you do! If people were to judge my housekeeping skills by the condition of my car, they'd think I was a total slob!


The Pink Rose Cottage said...

So glad I found you. Your blog is wonderful!

Oh what great finds! I probably wouldn't leave them in the trunk cuz I'd have to play with them, but I've been known to leave things on the dining room table for way too long!

Thanks for your comment, it was my grandmother as well. We were close so it's been hard. Each day is a little easier. Your blog is great!
Happy junkin'

Oh, I love those Mercury glass candle holders too, they are gorgeous! I can't say that my finds stay in my car very long, I'm always eager to get them inside & start working!

LOL...being an avid treasure hunter, there is always, always "junk in my trunk". Right now there is Christmas wrapping paper still in there that I picked up after Christmas for a great price. ~ Lynn
