Thrifty Finds – July 21

Green Tool Box a

I haven’t written about any of my junking finds lately.  I have been to some garage sales and a couple of auction sales, but not nearly as many as usual.  I have been working hard this month getting my shop restocked with awesome junk after doing almost nothing with it from late March through early June.  Here are a few items.

This green metal toolbox is one of my favorites.  Love the color.  It is in very good condition and could be used for so many different storage options.

Blue Tool Box a

Not only metal toolboxes, but wood, handled toolboxes are items I always pick up.  Love the blue color on this one.

Blue Train Case a

Finding a few different train cases as well.  This blue train case is perfect for storage.  I have a black Samsonite one that I have to get listed soon.

Sewing Drawer a

I used to find a lot of drawers from old sewing machines.  I don’t come across them nearly as often, but I do pick them up when I can.  This one is a typical design for a sewing machine drawer.  However I have another one with a great pull knob also listed.

Bright Pink Hat a

I have found some fun and funky hats.  I love the color of this bright pink puff hat.

Orange Wool Cloche Hat a

Or this orange cloche hat.  I have quite a few hats listed.  Fall will be coming when wearing hats will be easier than in this hot weather.

Crochet Half Apron Blue White a

I have also listed many different vintage aprons. From this crocheted apron.

Gray Apron Basket a

To this embroidered fruit basket apron.

Funky Flower Full Apron a

To full aprons like this funky flower full apron. Right now I have listed over 25 vintage aprons.

Even though I have not been writing about my junking or my Etsy shop, that is still apart of my life. Still enjoying it.  Life is good.


Thrifty Finds – July 7

I really enjoy summer and the ability to go out and search for treasures.  Here are a couple I haven’t shown you.

I fell for this toolbox with its scratched gray exterior and green interior.

I always loved Bugs Bunny growing up.  My boys still watch it.  I know my Mom watched the show too.  Bugs is for everyone, so when I spotted this battery powered toothbrush I picked it up.  I think I like the graphics on the box even more than the toothbrush.

Today I got up early and got some chores done, and then I ran to an auction sale for a couple of hours. I always feel better sitting there when I have some work done first.  I would rather spend two hours at a sale than go to a movie.  It really is my entertainment.

I got mostly glass items.

More vintage light shades.  3 pink and 1 light blue.  Unfortunately one has a crack, but I love the styles of them.

I think this is Indiana Glass.  Normally I stay away from green glassware, but I love the iridescent shine to this goblet.

Love the color of this fiesta ware gravy boat.

These three bottles were in one lot.  I like vintage milk bottles, but what I really wanted was this square Italy glass pitcher with aqua cover.

Finally this Ziploc bag of old keys.  I will sort them and sell them for craft projects.  Although I do have a thing for keys so I am sure I will keep one or two.

Did you have luck in your junkin’ this weekend?
