Good Junkin Thursday

Around here the Estate Sales start on Thursday. Although the prices at estate sales are usually a bit too high, today there were a couple of exceptions.
I brought all of this wonderful stuff home with me.

Look at this wonderful old coffee tin, bucket thing, and some beautiful decanters

Orange ceiling tin, bright yellow printers tray, and a unusually shaped frame, and some spindles and an old folding shopping cart.

Lots of smalls

Love this industrial table, and the large tool box. A couple of old journals with writing in them form decopage and other projects

The pics I took of the junk made me want to take some more "staged" shots.

With these I was playing with the shadows of theh bottles and the basket, and I loved the bright colors of the tin and printers tray in the background.
Usually bright sun is your enemy but I liked the effect.

Maybe something for next year's calendar if I do one.

It was a good day.
How about you?????

Waa.. I was at work, would have rather been shopping (I did cheat a little and go to a Goodwill at lunch and picked up a nice, clean rattan type trash can and a package of 12 tiny salt and pepper shakers.

Good stuff you found today,
God Bless,

Good for you! I went to the thrift and got an old tall shabby laundry basket but I think I will put a liner in it and use it for a trash can $2.92. And I got a large copper planter with cool handles for $3.93. It just needs to get a little warmer here in Orlando before I go out in the yard to work.
Happy day to you!

Sadly sales will not start here for another few months :( Your photography is really good--I am so bad! I think your son got the photographer genes from you, you are just discovering it!

Linda said...

Looks like you found some very cool stuff. I will start going to Estate sales later in the year and see if I like them.

Jason and Mallie said...

Great finds! Are you going to be keeping the old ceiling tin? I have been looking for some and my people around here don't have it.

Amy Kinser said...

You found some great things, Margo.

Wow!! You made off with lots of great goodies. I think the decanters would be my favorite. Also I think the decanters with the sun shining on them is a fabulous picture. Love it...
