Valentine's Day Auction Finds

We don't really celebrate Valentine's Day, which is okay by me.  But, I did treat myself to an auction and picked up a few things...

I picked up this lot of fun, flowery linens.
The aqua/white doily will be used under one of my centerpieces at my wedding.

I got this lot of green depression fairly cheaply.
I'll be keeping the drawer pulls and 2 salts.

Smalls are always good for the booth.
Lots of mini advertising tins.
Door knobs. Chandelier crystals.
And a 1988 Carson City bowling patch.

Hammered aluminum pitcher and cups.

I really loved the packaging on these Christmas lights.

I can't stop buying bingo games!
I've been selling lots of cards and marking chips.

My favorite buys from the auction.
This awesome parts drawer, milk box, and mini toolboxes with keys.

That's it for the finds.  Not much, but quality goods.

I've also been working on cleaning up the hoard/my office.
I shared an update here last week.

At the auction there were 2 shelves identical to the ones I already had.
I used them to heighten the shelves I have currently.
Lots of progress!

Look at my desk!  I haven't seen the top in over a year.

Now the shipping supplies are organized in this corner now, as opposed to just being thrown over there.  I used this plastic shelving unit I had lying around.

The weatherman is saying we're supposed to get 5-8 inches of snow this weekend.  So it may put a damper my treasure hunting adventures.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

I'm linking up at:


  1. Good finds Melissa. Love all the linens!

  2. My favorites? The set of metal drawers, the milk box, and the toolboxes. Such a cool industrial vibe. The wintry weather seems to be stopping about 50 miles from here. Hope our luck holds and no snow or ice.

  3. I love the parts drawer! I seem to love any furniture with little drawers. Nice that you treated yourself to a shopping expedition for Valentine's Day!

  4. Melissa, I love the depression glass and smalls are always so much fun! But of course, your favs are mine as well! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
