Weekend Mother Load of JUNK!

Mr. OTM....."You know, we really need some bigger pieces in the shop!"
Me...."Well....we COULD go on a buying trip like all the big wigs do in this biz...."
Mr. OTM....." Were would you want to go?"
Me......"I have a few ideas...I did get a call from a gal with a barnload of junk..."
Mr. OTM....."Let's roll.......................!"
And that's how it went! We packed an overnight bag, the dog and some snacks and hit the road just like two big wigs! We had a blast and found some PRIMO junk! He was right, I needed to get some bigger stuff in the shop as we have sold quite a bit of furniture in the last few months. So as if we needed an excuse~ this was an honest to goodness "business trip!" The hotel we stayed at was wonderful and pet friendly WITH a hot tub to boot. After a good day of junkin , it was so nice to be able to go sit in the tub and think about all the cool stuff I just bought. Ahhhhh...I would really like to have one of those at my house...THAT REALLY made me feel like a JUNK QUEEN! Now...onto the pics.................
I was thrilled to find some great base cupboards....

After stepping on this old dustpan and having the handle *WHACK* me in the shin ($%&!), I took a second look and decided that it had been trying to get my attention~ so I bought him!
The chippy meal bin is a fav! All it needs is a knob and the top hinged back on...........


This little red ladder jumped out at me. I LOVE this one!



This old workbench is on wheels and a great color!! Nice and solid, I thought it would make a wonderful potting bench! Already have it in the shop!
If ya see anything you like and are curious about a price just shoot me an email or I'll see ya at the shop!

Great finds! I am so ready for a junkin' road trip! The winter here in NE has been depressing to say the least. Would love to head down your way sometime. You always have great stuff. The new booth looks great too!

I could use some of those cupboard bases!

By the way looks like you've been hit with a chineese porn comment!! These things are bad news, don't open them! I posted about this a few weeks ago!
