The rain is gone and yard sale season has finally hit Southern Oregon. My eyeballs roll up in my head before I can make it through all the postings on Craigslist. Prioritize, prioritize. I look at Estate Sales first. Probably everybody does, right? And I look for 'old tools' in the listing because that might mean there are casters and other nifty hardware things to be had. I especially love the farm and barn sales, along with about 100 other serious pickers around here. I've seen men RUN when the ribbon is cut. Actually run to get that unknown prize before someone else does. I once saw two men tackle a dress form.
I move at a slower pace but I still do just fine at the sales. This past week was especially fun. Take a peek!
A vintage milk shake blender
Cool old kitchen tools
A nice kitchen scale
Really pointy shoe forms, cowboy boots, maybe?
Cute and little. What can I say? Yes, I know I'm missing one.
I've not seen a perfume atomizer like this before. It looks so masculine.
Another trunk. This one has beautiful leather. My plan is to make it into a coffee table but I have no idea how, yet. I don't want to damage the trunk by drilling through it to attach legs. Probably I'll have to get Mr. Bad to help me make a platform.
Inside of trunk
An unheard of free door and $1 windows
Another box. And awesome cream cans.
Old hardware. I love the casters and Victorian picture hangers.
Plus 3 chairs. And 5 more windows. Some screen doors.
FUN! And there's still tomorrow and Sunday!
