Well DH and I decided to brave the heat and spend a few hours in Canton at First Monday Trades Days. I knew we wouldn't be there long, but thought "I can brave the heat for awhile". It's amazing what I can endure when I'm junking. So off we went. One of our first stops was for something to drink. DH got a Lemonade and me... Sweet Tea of course.
then I handed the camera to him and said, "here take some pictures".
"This is a cool tractor"
"Huh! I can't hear you"
"robot parts" This is a family joke. Whenever I go junking my DH always says "look for robot parts" and He's serious.
Here's where things get a little difficult. You see I drive a small Mitsubishi. You'd be amazed how much junk I can actually fit into my little car, but there is a limit. DH asked if we wanted to take the truck. I said "no, it'll keep me from getting anything big" Famous last words.
You know I love scales. Well when I spotted this.
I just had to ask how much it was. The guy said "you're not gonna believe it, but I'll sell it to you for $50." Well my jaw just about dropped and I was speechless, thinking he was kidding, but he wasn't. This is when I realized it might have been a mistake to drive my little car. Then I asked about another item he had that I knew i could fit in my car and it was $250. I looked at him funny and then it hit me. "you don't want to carry it home, do you?" Well I had it pegged. That sucker is heavy and he didn't want to lug it around any more. Well I had no choice but to walk away.
Here's another cool item that was only $25 but I had to leave it behind.
See, you would mount a typewriter on it, and when not in use, it just folded up out of the way.
Cool!!!! I love old office equipment and supplies. And it was only $25. As DH said, "It's at least worth that in firewood alone."
Well here is what I didn't pass up.
Love this sign. See the little porch off of the left side, and the chimney.
I actually picked these 2 doll carriages up at a garage sale on the way. I've got a couple of projects in store for them. Love the wheels.
This is some sort of tie holder, the metal piece flips forward a bit, and the part at the top is a frame for your picture.
Broom holder, nice and chippy
Cistern Bucket, I've got an idea for this too.
Well there you have it, my day in Canton, and the deals I passed up.
