Guys, I have been swamped with the day job. I had to spend a week in Florida... and I didn't even get to enjoy the nice weather!
So, these finds are from the last few weeks... some are from the twice yearly warehouse sale put on by a friend of mine that owns a couple of antique malls... some finds are from the Covered Bridge Festival that I attended October 15th and 16th... some from an estate sale... and there was also one big find from a random parking lot sale at a small-town flea market.
So... let me show you what I've bought recently!
A cute typewriter table!
I bought SO many bottles. This is only half! I think I got several hundred. I lost count.
Look - even some cobalt blue ones!
And old laboratory ones!
Can you believe these were still at an estate sale on half price day? They were such a good buy, even at full price!
Lots of smalls from here and there.
One of my favorite finds - all these old spice jars with original labels and lids!
I took a chance on these - they're parts of old wood crates. I bought them like this, because I wouldn't voluntarily take apart a wood crate with great graphics! I thought they'd be fun to hang on the wall or build a new crate with. Surprisingly, I have sold a good chunk of them!
Architectural salvage pieces always sell!
CHEAP Pyrex and Fire King (and a spice bottle I forgot to include in the above picture). Can you believe all the Pyrex bowls were 50 cents each? The FK bowl was only a dollar, which is a good price since it is missing some of the graphics.
Smalls upon smalls.
More from the estate sale that were a great price. Again, I couldn't believe how cheap they were.
Whenever I find old drawers like this, I HAVE to buy them.
I was very lucky to get so many drawers.
Plus a few wood crates.
Here's the big find from the parking lot sale at the flea market!
I can't believe what I paid for it and you wouldn't believe me if I told you.
Finally, along with the good, sometimes comes the bad.
One of the hinges on one of my doors on The Beast literally broke off!
Tried having it re-welded... and no go... wouldn't hold.
So, now I've gotta get an estimate to get this one cut off and a new one welded on.
It doesn't have to be pretty - just functional.
For now, I'm lucky that the door is latched in place and really doesn't need fixed, if I never want to use it again. But, I will eventually need to.
It's always something, right?
