The old chippy bread box has a story too......it was being used to display Star Wars action figures. I asked if it was for sale...."NO, THAT IS FOR DISPLAY ONLY!!"...(can I tell you how much that phrase annoys the cr@# out of me!!!! why bring it to a show in the first place...UGH!!!.....I could do a whole blog post on that .....anyway...) So as I am saying bad words in my head, she says that I wouldn't pay what she asked for it anyway , so I asked what she wanted and she said "10.00!" so I whipped out a ten spot and got the darn bread box!! She took like 20 minutes getting all the action figures out and I was thinking to myself..."Seriously Beth....should a junk purchase be THIS difficult with all the drama of the relocating of the Star Wars stuff into a shoe box...do you feel bad AT ALL ........Nope, nothing, na-da"...so I continued to wait for the wonderful old chippy box.....I think it was sooooo worth it!!! The metal oyster basket is great! These make super cool light fixtures..........You can NEVER go wrong with old scales...and the little vintage garden pick is the perfect little addition to my collection.
Okay...now this table is one of my MOST FAVORITE PIECES I found....it is truly a one of a kind.....someone took an old REEVES wash tub stand (the kind that would house two galvanized wash tubs) and added table top! It is that wonderful great blue/gray color and it's on WHEELS!! What a great piece! The old wood wash tub on top is a piece that I have been looking for for a long time...I LOVED the colors on it!
These pieces all look so cute together!! The gray shelf piece needed a bit of work and a good washing but believe it or not there is a mirror in there! The old bottle with woven wicker cover and zinc cap is too adorable. The Smith Douglas sac will make a great pillow and the little old chippy cubby shelf just made my heart sing!!!
I was in desperate need to find a cupboard and was jumping up and down when I spotted this baby...it has green paint underneath too!! TOO DIE FOR! I got the old little hanger for $1.00 and was told it was the first one ever made!! LOL!
For even more pics..hop on over to my other blog JUNKIN ESCAPADES! Hope your day was great too! What did you find this weekend??
