Continuing

Some of the bigger freebies this time around.  Smalls tomorrow.   You'll have to forgive the pics.  Everything is all at the booth.  I'm pressed for time.  No time to stage.  Or even take decent shots.

Hauling it all in by the cartload!


I have been out of windows FOREVER, so finding them has been a real priority for me.  They were pretty scarce this set out.  I was beginning to despair over the situation when I found five.  They're all single pane and the same size.  This one was the only one with any hardware.
 

Bird cage and small vintage wooden chest from the store haul.  The top to the chest is off the hinges, but I love it anyway.


Fun yellow wicker chest I found in a construction dumpster.


Yellow crate that I almost had to fight someone over.  I was there first, dammit!



Odd blue wooden box that I found last Saturday in a junk pile while we were on our way to lunch. It's got outlets on it and a wire coming out of it, making it too intriguing to pass up.  Any wooden item that is this shade of blue seems to sell for me.


Poor Emma!  Someone set her stool on the curb in a pile of junk.  Judging by the cobwebs that were on it, she hadn't used it in a while.  This is a really nice paint job, by the way.  Whoever did it remembered to seal it or wax it or whatever.  it was so filthy that it was almost black from grime, but it cleaned right up really easily with no loss of color.


Handmade yard stuff, barn red even!  


Small, handmade wooden media shelf--really solid.  From the store stash.


Small round table.  It looks like it was made from a cable spool, but it's not.  It was manufactured that way.  Definitely a project for some talented soul.


It's covered in band stickers and graffiti about Courtney and Kyle and their undying love.  I blacked out the last names just in case someone might recognize them.


This cute little table came from three houses down.


C'mon!  Who doesn't need a painting of one gigantic strawberry?  From the store haul.


The one lone shutter I found this time around. In front of it are tools and ski poles from the store haul.  Of course, I would grab the ski poles.



Somehow we ended up on the same street as two scrapper trucks, but were in front of them, so I got these cool metal garden chairs. They are seriously sturdy and high quality.  There was a matching table that was way too large for Mazda, so I had to leave it for the scrappers.


The gas can is from Belknap, a now-defunct, hardware and tool company that was based in Louisville.  Their stuff is very popular with collectors in these parts.  I love selling stuff with local ties.

Still more to come tomorrow.

Wow! I got a load of stuff that was NEARLY free this weekend. It's been awhile since I've been able to go to an auction, buy 15 boxes of antique booth filler (bread and butter items!) and 4 nice quilts for $20. I doubt it happens again anytime soon! *knock on wood*

I can't believe you got all this for FREEEEEEEEEE! I want to go curb picking now. Except no one puts stuff on the curb except for me. Dangit.

there's a real art to junking, and I have no capacity

I would love to park myself next to your booth and do exit interviews of people that buy some of these items to find out how they plan to upcycle them.
