Lazy Junkin' Weekend

Guys, I went to an auction on Saturday and turned up with nothing except a new pair of bakelite bracelets (I'm now OBSESSED with finding more).  AND a bunch of stuff I needed: like a HUGE set of vintage stainless steel copper bottom pans (mine were pretty dingy hand-me-downs from relatives that I've used since college) and stacks upon stacks of firewood (our pile was down to a few logs - we had a lot of fires in the fireplace this winter).


Despite the junk-less weekend (major sadface, I know)... I did get a pretty big dent in my piles upon piles of stuff to get ready for the Woodruff Place Flea Market.  I shared a few snippets on Instagram.

Don't think I worked the whole time.  We also had fires in our new firepit and grilled out A TON.  I'd grill out everyday if I could.

Tomorrow is the start of the US 40 / National Road Yard Sale (click to see my finds from last year).  Looking forward to seeing what goodies I can find this weekend.  Going to head West on Friday and head East on Saturday.  Follow along on Instagram!

Have a great week!

  1. Girl, you are crazy busy, it's true. Glad you took time to relax a little over the weekend. Love your latest obsession with bakelite. As a purse collector, I know bakelite can get diseased, so just watch out for and pass on any cloudy and crystallized looking cruddy pieces you come upon. Might want to google it so you'll be in the know on what to look for. Have a great week.

  3. I love those typewriters and your Bakelite bracelets. It's so much work prepping for a vintage show, but so much fun at the same time. Thanks for sharing at Vintage Inspiration Party.

  6. Prepping for a show is a lot of work! I know that you have lots of great things to sell and will do well. Silly me can not wear any kind of a bangle. I can not curl my hand up tight enough to get them over it. Weird I know, but it's the truth! lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
