Recent Finds, from Junk Bonanza and other places

I know I have been slow at getting all my pics posted from the Bonanza, but Life is going 100mph right now. The Gresham sale is this week and I had to get my stuff priced and hauled out there, and I helped with opening night last night. Wow it was fabulous, and if you are local remember it goes on through Saturday so don't miss it. Here are pics of some of my Bonanza finds and some other treasures found elsewhere.

First the things I'm keeping.

My absolute favorite Bonanza find are these old bus sign rolls. These are authentic, not reproductions and while waiting for my box to arrive that I shipped from MN, I've been deciding where to hang my sign.

This is the perfect place I think. I even like the brown stain in the middle, makes it look authentic (as it is).

I also found 3 more retro glasses to add to my collection

Today I found this box of cap gun parts, Ohh the altered art possibilities.

This little vignette is a hodge podge of recent finds. The small clock, feeder box,
bus sign, red checkered trays, trouble light (in basket) and white cabinet are all from MN. Local finds are 2 stools, one is a great retro red & chrome, wash stand, vintage light fixtures, striped collapsing basket, B&W clock face & metal planter.

Back to bonanza finds, These are the items I brought home in my luggage.
Love the vintage christmas picks, There is a letter box slot, some metal tags,
bingo balls.
