Recent Finds, Ruff Stuff in the Barn

I've been doing a lot of finding lately, Trying to stock up for the slow winter months to come.

This is a great garden planter whichI promptly broke this item as soon as I got it home. the metal feet are really brittle and one of them just bent off. I'm still trying to figure out how to fix it.

Today I found these great old wine crates and 2 of these chalk boards.
the mirror was last week's find.

I love the decoration on this mirror

found this today, needs a little TLC but it's a diamond in the Ruff.
In case you wonder where I store and work on my stuff. I'm blessed with a storage barn on my property. At first we didn't know what we were going to use it for, but soon found it to be a great place for storing my junk. Can't keep paper or fabric items out there though because of the critters ;)
The barn has a section with a wooden floor, but most of it is a dirt floor. I got in an organized the wooden floor area last week, and now I can walk around.
See anything you like? Lots of goodies in there...

Yesterday I took this great old industrial typewriter stand to Winnie & Tulula's as well as the industrial stool. Not sure what I'm going to do with the wagon bucket there on the right, but I'll come up with something. I think it would be a great planter.

Here's a close up of the ends of those unusual wooden crates. I love labeled crates.

And this is the prize, this old trunk has seen better days but I love it just as it is. The raised metal panels, rusty patina, and chippy paint are just perfect. It now resides at Winnie & Tulula's waiting for a forever home. Wish I could keep it but I don't need more stuff :(

I'm finding lots of smalls as well. Isn't this old wedding cake topper from 1953 just delicious.

And these boxes of Shiny Brite Ornaments

Both of these items are available on my Etsy.
I'm finding lots of vintage Christmas and I'm listing it on my Etsy as I find it, so be sure to check often.
Hope you are finding many treasures as well.
Have a great weekend.

Looks like a good place to go on a treasure your barn! I wonder if my "critters" are cousins to your "critters"...

Wow, some great stuff. My favorites are those wine crates though. I do like what looks like a typewriter table. Are you still selling on ebay too?

Great storage space, I have a similar spot but I think everything would go rotten in it due to the weather. Loving some of your finds!
