You know me. . . . I love to go out junkin, a lot!
I didn’t want you to think I haven’t been out junkin, I have, I just haven’t posted my finds.
Today I’m sharing a few finds with you…I’ve been to some of the best garage/barn sale e.ver this summer.
All three pieces were found at a Barn sale in Sandwich, Il. The first cabinet is wood and needs a coat of paint. The second cabinet is metal and is now living in my utility room.
The table in front is now our living area table. All three pieces were less and $55.
The vintage bottles were also found at the barn sale. Not giving the prices since I’m opening an on-line shop.
I thought I was going to a garage sale, as it turns out, it was an estate sale. It was the best garage sale I’ve ever been to.
Nothing was marked and you had to ask the price of everything. I spotted a few quilts in individual vinyl bags, turned to the “pricing” lady, asked the cost, she said $2.00 each!
I stood for a second, turned around, and picked up all four quilts.
This quilt in in very good shape and they told me the quilts were made by their Mom and Auntie.
The quilts were all done in the same pattern with different fabrics.
This one’s also in good shape and only the backing is ripped.
The third one has a lot of wear and tear…
I don’t think there’s a way to salvage the whole quilt because the center is worn/torn.
The sides/bottomm of the quilt are in good shape and they’ll be used to make cozy mug rugs and a table runner.
Are the remaining quilt sections thrown out?
I feel honored to have the quilts and told the sellers I would take very good care of them.
Several shaped enamel bowls.
Vintage luggage piece, cleaned up and sitting in our master bedroom adding much needed storage space.
vintage typewriter, since I’m not selling it, cost $10 with cover. I’m trying to figure out how to removed it from the “stand” it sits in?
Vintage paper cutter.
Didn’t want to make this post too long, so much more to share.
What great finds have you found out junkin?
