What a great weekend!!! Sunday was the BEST!!! Mr. OTM and I got up at 4:30 ( yep that's am!!) , met up with our dear friends Lisa and Dave at 6:30 and started our junkin journey! We had a blast as always and the JUNK was PRIMO!! Take a peek at what I found.....I am usually not a sign person ...really only because they are usually too darn expensive....I found this cutie for only $15 bucks and it's double sided too! I thought it would look good in the shop above the cash register area....would add a bit of humor to the place! The old chippy white kettle was a S~T~E~A~L....let me tell ya...when I asked how much it was the guy told me "Oh I am gonna have to get $48.oo bucks for that"....well thank you I said and was turning away...He goes "What did you want to pay...make me an offer! " So I tell him that I would embarrass myself if I was to be honest about how much I would pay and he says "Don't be embarrassed, just give me a number!......okay...here goes...'How about 10 bucks??" ( with a pleading tone and look in my eye) ...HE SAYS ...OKAY!!! Can you even believe that one??? I saved 38.00 just like that....I have no pride I swear!! The rusty wire old trash can was a fav too plus a great bargain
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??
Old metal bins...you gotta love um!! These have the super duper ability to stack..which makes them even more fabulous. The list of uses are literally endless and are a priceless fixture in todays "junk style" decorating. What do YOU do with bins????I love to hear what people do with stuff after they buy it from me and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it even more when I get to see it! That is EXACTLY what happened today!! I had the pleasure to meet Cheyenne and Geoff fromwww.cheyenneschultzphotography.blogspot.com.They came down to the shop today after visiting my booth at the Sleepy Poet . We got to chattin and they told me that they had ransacked my booth and had fallen in love with 5 pieces( a small cream cabinet, silver tea~pot,old chippy drawer, grey bench, old metal file box) that they bought for their home! YOU HAVE TO GO SEE THE BLOG POST PICTURES SHE POSTED!! Go to the September 3rd post and the pictures are FABULOUS!!! What I got the biggest kick out of is that they have them displayed practically the same as they were in my booth. I never gave it a thought that that display could actually be so functionable! It looks wonderful in their home...I feel so honored!! Oh.....if you are planning on getting hitched....check out their engagement and wedding photograpy...in a word......SUPERB!!
What a weekend!! I was soo excited when I got a call on Saturday telling me that one of the gals from Junk Market Style...Sue Whitney was shopping in my booth at the Sleepy Poet Antique Mall in Charlotte!! WOOOO-HOOOO!!! She said she loved it and did a really nice post on her blog....she has got some great pictures of my booth (a little mix up with the name...no biggie) and shows a super cute oil fill cap that she bought. The website is www.junkmarketstyle.comand if you haven't signed up there...hop to it!! You'll be glad you did!She was in town speaking at the Southern Womens Show and like a TRUE JUNKER, found time to junk shop. Sure wish I could have been there while she was there with her friends....lordy I would have talked that girls ear off! Hopefully they loved Charlotte enough to come back. Still have goose bumps over the whole thing! Needless to say it made my day!!! Thanks SUE!!
