On my morning ventures I had begun to get a bit discouraged. The item of the day seemed to be clothing, and I had not come across any furniture, silver, or good "junky" junk. Then by chance I turned a corner and came across a sale tucked back in an alley. I found this wonderful antique carpenters trunk. I bargained with the seller for a deal on the trunk, minus the tools that were in it. We quickly came to a deal and started to unload the trunk. After asking where I was from, he then asked..."Do you know JUNK FEST?" I quickly replied..."I AM JUNK FEST!!" (1/4 of it anyway) He was thrilled, I was thrilled. It's so rewarding to run into our fans when we're out and about. This gentleman and his wife were vendors in our flea market last year and can't wait to "flea" with us again!My sister was so sweet to do a little junk shopping for me too. She found a cute treadle base and a great writing desk. She'll have to come over and help me transform these into "junk" treasures!
The postage scale was another favorite find of the day. And the vintage hacksaw is tiny and oh so cute!! I couldn't resist.
I can see some chalkboards in my future. These frames are each sweet in their own way.
This chandelier just couldn't be ignored. It's seen a few hard times but has some gorgeous details and deserves another chance to shine.
I'm so glad so many of you lurkers are finally commenting!! We've anxiously been waiting to meet you!!
