More fun Finds

I'm so glad Garage Sale season is back in full swing. There are lots of great things out there just waiting to be found.

Last week I found a group of 6 of these drawer sets. I think they were for microfilm. they stack and can even be locked together. These 2 sets are stacked on an old metal typing table that I have at Winnie & Tulula's(sold). I have 4 more of these drawer sets, LMK if you are interested and are local.

I also found this fun and unusual item. these would be attached to old ambulances (station wagons) that belonged to individuals that contracted with the local towns to transport folks to the hospitals. These would be attached to their back windows. Here you see 2 hanging together, Notice the + plaque in each one.

These are old car horns, they make fun containers or vases

What a fun old sprinkler

I love old lanterns

Not sure what these old rusty gear looking things are. The guy said something about seed spreader. Anyway, as seen at Judy Hill's show, Now it's an adornment for my mannequin. these would look great on the wall inside a frame too.

And I picked this up yesterday. What a great old feeder. No room at either of my booth's for this piece right now, so it rests in my barn with the wind turbine.

Next week I've got a few fun projects to share with you, so stay tuned.

It is so good that I don't live closer to you. I would be soooo broke! Every time I read your blog I want to hop in my van and drive over to TX. Love those old ambulance things and the car horns! I have three of those feeders that I use for planters.

Guess it's a Texas thing...nothing here in garage sales except old clothes and greasy plastic. I should employ your method of asking for the junk drawer contents. :D

I was just told the seeder is called a planter plate. I justed posted on my blog about these. I have already sold some. Funny we should come up with the same items...

I'm thinking, after seeing your booth Saturday, you better go shopping again! And I wanna know more about the feeder you put in your barn. Size, rust holes, etc...Might be a good deer feeder, eh? ~Mindy
