What is a monkeybox?

When I was a little girl, we had a pet monkey named Amanda. My Dad worked in the produce business, so each night he brought home that days culls in a big box - spotty cucumbers, pithy apples, limp celery, moldy oranges and the like. We called it a monkeybox. It was really just trash, but my Mom would take each piece of fruit and trim it, pare it and cut it up to make a beautiful fruit platter for Amanda. Even though it was deemed trash by one, it still had life left in it and was good for the purpose we needed it. That's how I live my life - thrifting, yard saling, looking for another's trash to be my treasure.

The Week in Junk: Wishlist Item FOUND

As usual, I hit a few thrift stores this week.  One stop netted me only a 50¢ Starbucks mug and the other a 1970's 75¢ Parmesan cheese shaker.  Neither really worth the stop, but at lease I found a little something - both headed to the booth for $8.00 each.  I guess if I found $8.00 in the parking lot I would call that a good day.  So, it was good enough, I suppose.

Saturday, I went to the Super cheap Thrift and then I drove a bit out of the way to go to the Summer's Thrifty Flea.  It is in a tiny "town" on the edge of the AR/OK line.  It is unincorporated, so it isn't really a town but more like a spot in the road.  The population is about 900 spread out in the country. There is a wee little post office and a big old school building that the people want to restore.  It is in dilapidated condition, but still a really cool old building.  The thrift store is inside that old school building.  Half of the store is new merchandise or things they think are worth more than a few dollars and, sadly, a whole lot of recently expired groceries.  I was raised on dented cans and freshly out of date canned foods and bruised produce. But, I just don't like to buy it now.  Plus, it is super expensive, in my book.  It it was $2.00, it's $1.25 and it's months out of date.  No thank you.  Now, that I have said all that you are wondering why on earth I went all the way out there to that sort of store.  Well!  The other half of the store is housewares, holiday, clothes and on and on.  You grab an empty grocery bag and fill it up for $1.00.  On my first walk through, I am looking for things I can sell or things I collect, then I look for things I can put in the booth or we can use or I can give to people.  This time I filled up five bags full of all sorts of stuff for a total of $5.00.  *I really don't see how selling things at $1.00 a bag will ever make enough money to restore a building.  

I got random Christmas things I can sell or make into other things, some old kitchen stuff and these super cool old red lucite letter trays.  I have the letter trays in my booth for $24.00, so that was worth the trip, plus all the other randomness I bought.  Sorry there aren't more photos, but not much was really photo worthy.  But, here's a photoworthy photo.....

Next to the old schoolhouse there was an old rock building and there was a bunch of stuff spread out in the grass.  I almost didn't walk over there because I could tell it was all old stuff and probably higher than I wanted to pay.  Then, I came to my senses and realized I was pretty much in the middle of nowhere with little traffic, so it couldn't be that expensive.  They had some old furniture, tools and other stuff.  That fabulous quilt caught my eye right away.  It was $20.00.  Now, that's not a yard sale price for me - but it is a yard sale price for a hand stitched feedsack quilt with that fancy edging. SOLD.  I know it's worth a good deal better.  But, I am loving it so much that I have to keep it for now.  It would be great on the table at shows for my feedsack pendants or better yet - on the bed in the #somedayguestroom I am working on.  I already had the doughbowl, but I needed something for all those old spools.  There's 75 big old wooden thread spools there.  They were only $2.00.  I think I cna use them or make something or just sell them.  The labels are old and warrant a bit of research.  

Here is a little bit of the Christmas I shoved in a bag for $1.00.  Those Santa's are TP rolls and most likely made by a kindergartner.  I think they are hilarious. I never pass up a bottle brush tree.  Even the plastic ones.  

A trio of Norwegian wooden guys from the college thrift that never has good old stuff.  

A vintage rose tin and rose tray from Goodwill.  There was a varied amount of rose themed things scattered about Goodwill that day.  Dishes, paintings, figurines, etc.  I bought the two oldest things.  I think Grandma collected roses.  :( 

Now for that wishlist item.  I have my wishlist posted on the side over to the right.  That is my dream wishlist.  I also have a mental wishlist that includes a turntable (to listen to thrifted albums), a 8mm film projector (I have a ton of old movies from the 50's I thrifted) and a set of Green Boopie glasses. We had a set when I was a kid.  They sat in the lighted hutch all year long and we only used them for holiday meals.  I felt so fancy to get to use one of those beautiful green glasses!

Fast forward to a quick run into Goodwill on Tuesday where they were just rolling out the carts of new merchandise.  

TA-DA!  I saw one, then another and and another for a total of five.  I had found one lone glass years ago, so I now have a set of 6!  And they were only $1.01 each.  A STEAL.  They are pricey on ebay and in shops.  My Christmas table is going to be FABULOUS!

When I paid, they carefully wrapped each glass in newspaper.  When I unwrapped the glasses  - look what I found!

Goodwill used the newspaper with an article written by LARA!  I don't get to see her or talk to her much anymore, so this made me happy,   My thrifting buddy was there to get my beloved glasses home safe.  Thanks, Lara! <3 .="" nbsp="" p="">
 The weather finally turned cool over night.  Yay!  There are a few big sales this weekend and two neighborhood sales near me.  I love cool weather and junking.  I hope your weekend has cool temps and cool junk in the forecast too!

The Week in Junk: Pickin' Time on 59

In the last month I have closed my booth, donated about half of it, sold at the Junk Ranch then donated about a fourth of that (leftover booth stuff), cleaned in my office donating a pick up full of things, cleaned out the shed and donated some things and cleaned out our closet and donated and sold a lot of things.  Sometimes I think about the number of items I touch in a day with buying, cleaning, marking, packing, displaying, donating, etc and I get overwhelmed with STUFF.  But, then the STUFF bug bites me and I need to go find more stuff.  The old stuff here at the house is BORING. I need NEW old stuff.  In short, I think I have a mental illness.  :)  

Thursday I went to Pickin' Time on 59 which is a 26 mile long yard sale jaunt through several small towns.  You are in Arkansas the entire time, but you start at the Oklahoma line and work your way to the Missouri line.  BTW, I prefer these mile long sales over city side sales because they are all along the highway in clear sight and you don't have to venture all over town (and possibly get a flat and be stranded.  Ahem.)

First stop was a bathroom break and to trade in a winning lottery ticket.  I had treated myself to a $10.00 scratch off after the Junk Ranch and I "won" $10.00.  It's no fun to break even, so I saved it to trade in at a new store.  I chose a $10.00 ticket again and I WON $50.00 on one scratch and 10x $5.00 on another scratch for a total of $100.00.  Woohoo!  I had allotted $100 for yard sales and food for the day, so it was a free day!

On to the sales~  At the beginning of the jaunt, there is a field in front of the airport with about 70 vendors set up.  That is the main event.  We were there about two hours or so then continued on to the next tiny town and hit several spots where there were multiple vendors set up .  Those are really the best ones to go to because you might find one thing here and there or a lot at each vendor.  You never know.  

I filled up two totes at the airport for not much at all.  There were a variety of sellers there from yard sale junk with yard sale prices to booths full of new knives and Hot Wheels to booth of high priced vintage and antiques.  One guy had some older stuff, but it was dirty and unorganized in old boxes (I'm not saying any of that is BAD), but he said "Make an Offer" and I HATE that.  Hate it, hate it.  I had four items and he said, $5.00 after I begged him to name a price.  I countered at $4.00, which I honesty really never do, then he said, "Why didn't you say that in the first place?"  Then I felt awkward.  That's why I say, PRICE YOUR JUNK.

On the last aisle of booths, I spotted a nice old birdcage on a stand, but there was a lady looking at it. The lady selling it said it was $10.00 and I knew it was a great deal.  Then the shopper asked if she would take $5.00 and I knew that was not a nice thing to be doing on an already great price.  She said she had a lot of interest in it and was sure she could get $10.00 for it, so the shopper turned away.  I stepped in and handed her the $10.00 and thanked her for a great price.  She was happy that I was happy.  That's how I feel when I sell something to someone that is happy to find it.  

On to the next town and a few stops at different multiple vendor sales and a big open air market at a flea market.  I bought several things, none of which I can specifically remember because I found THIS.

A darling bunny girl pose doll.  FOR A DIME.  She is pristine.  I already have an identical one and she is honestly one of my favorite possessions.  Like, I would put her in my pocket if I had to out run a flood.  So to have another one is just icing on the cake.  I can keep her with no guilt since she only cost a dime.  I really do try to sell more than I buy anymore.  But sometimes, some things just have to stay with ME!

The car fulled up with lots of good stuff.  My last stop of the day netted that awesome plaid blanket and both of the Thermos bottles for $1.00 each plus a nice bag full of vintage Christmas for a few more dollars.  I love it when the last stop makes you feel like you had a successful day.  

This is NOT a political view in anyway.  I just find it interesting that someone would take the time to put this HUGE sign in their front yard.  This was at a house and I assumed it was advertising their YARD SALE, but nope.  'Murica.

After the yard sales were over, I did a great MOM thing.  I took my baby to the CASINO and taught him how to gamble.  Because that's the kind of Mom I am!

We pretty much lost that $100 I won earlier in the day, but we had fun!  We started on the Penny Machines which I hate.  I was playing one and the screen lit up and bells started ringing and this huge Wheel of Fortune thing started spinning above my head and I grabbed his hand in excitement and it spun and it lit up and.........I won $1.75.  Whomp-Whomp.  We moved on to the 25¢, 50¢ and $1.00 machines and we even played the $5.00 machine once.  Big spenders!  It was a learning experience and a fun day.  By the end of the say, I had spent $107 dollars for all the things I bought, lunch at Sonic, dinner at the Casino (which is not cheap) and three hours of gambling.  Not bad.

A few pictures of the goods:

I showed this on Instagram - I bought these things from five different sales, but they all go together like I bought them at the same time.  I love it when that happens.   I think those Mobile Home tags are sort of cool.  Glamping is in now.  I love those old red Bakelite dominoes and the Thermos have worked their way into my collection.  

Nice bag full of old Christmas seals from the Thermos/blanket sale.  I love these old seals, but I have no idea what to do with them.  I have an old candy tin filled with thousands of them and I just like to look at them and sort them.  Someday I will think of a use for them!

Friday I went to a five family sale, but everything I bought belonged to "T" because "T" had good old stuff for cheap.  I'm pretty sure those stickers might cost almost a nickel each....."T" was my kind of gal!

I have put myself on a "no tins" and "no old books" rule.  I guess you can see how well that is going for me.  :D  I have plans for the tiny candy tins.  The old books date from 1872-1932.  I love just holding something that is nearly 150 years old.  

Odds and ends.  That's a Poodle bottle cover kit on the right.  I love to buy old craft kits. Not sure if it will sell or not, but I had to grab it.  

I have never seen these old melted popcorn decorations for anything other than Halloween and Christmas.  Wrong time of year for them, but you have to buy it when you see it.  

This is the first one of these I have ever found.  It is missing the light up base, and a couple of the lights are missing, but it's in otherwise good condition.  People LOVE these things.  I do not.  But, nostalgia is a good thing no matter what the object of affection might be.  I bought this in the middle of the airport filed and carried it all over that darn field.  Super heavy!  

A little Christmas here and a little Christmas there always adds up at the end of the day.  I have several of those old toilet seat covers and they never sell.  But the cute PINK factor won me on this one.  (His eyes are covered up when the lid is lifted, in case you have never seen one.)

Cute Santa and Ms. Claus.  I hate that they say Xmas.  It's not even a religious thing - I just think that is a lazy way to write Christmas.  But, their cuteness outweighs that fact. 

One lone spun head I dug out of a box of junk.  

Super cute little dudes.  One of their hands is missing, but I will find something to glue there and no one will be the wiser.  

So, that was a long winded post, but it has been a long time since I had a Week in Junk post.  The yard sale season will be winding down soon, but I plan on shopping while it's still good.  I'm still trying to get a new booth and ebay sales have been good lately.  Plus our college booth is doing really good right now.  I say all this so I can persuade myself that I really DO NEED TO SHOP.  Ha.

Seven! Seven! Seven.............SEVEN!

My 7th Junk Ranch is done and one for the history books.  It was a great show with terrific weather. It wasn't overly cool but not too hot either.  The sun beat on your head and made you warm, but not sweaty. So great outdoor shopping weather.  The gates open on Friday at noon, so cars start streaming in from early morning until almost 6:00 that night so it is hard to tell how many cars come and go from my vantage point.  But on Saturday, the line started forming until the gates open at 9:00.  I watched cars come in the gate bumper non-stop until 3:30!  It is so much fun to see people come to an event that has had so many people working so hard to prepare, make, create and set-up.  

The show seemed to go seamlessly this year with little complaining from customers.  In the past, there was a FREE service for a group of strapping young Ranch Hands to come pickup your heavy furniture or oversized items in a gator with a trailer,  They would deliver them to the loading zone for FREE and then load those items in your vehicle for FREE.  For FREE.  But, people complained that it took too long or they had to wait in line too long and on and on and on.  Then customers started saying it was too hot or too far to carry things, so the Ranch Hands would go to pick up something at a vendors booth only to discover it was a light metal wall hanging or in one case - a basket of tomatoes.  This was completely abusing the system which did make the lines long and the wait lengthy.  But still it was a FREE service.  The Ranch hands were local high school football players and local young men that were solely working for tips, but the many of the people using the FREE service weren't tipping either.  

So, this year you could still get an item picked up and loaded at the loading zone,  But, there was one simple change.  It cost $5.00 for the service.  You should have seen the giant things I saw people schlepping out to their cars.  It's funny what you can suddenly do when you have to PAY for it.  This freed up the wonderful owners (HI AMY) and Ranch hands to take care of other business and even SHOP a little!  Yay! 

This year, my booth was moved over a few spots so I was the very first booth inside the gate to the left.  Lara was next to me.  Since she got a full time job and is so very busy now, she was worried that she couldn't fill up an entire booth by herself, so she asked our mutual friend, Laurie to use half of her booth.  Between the three of us, we shared a mutual check out area which allowed shoppers to shop all three areas before they paid. Lara had her sweet prints and her painted signs and a bit of vintage and Laurie had Dictionary prints and a lot of vintage so they paired up well.  I had vintage Christmas palooza in my booth.  I also had vintage this and that and a mix of my usual handmade jewelry, ephemera and Halloween items.  I suppose it's time for some photos, eh?

This year we could start set up on Wednesday.  This works well for trailers full of giant things that can be loaded out into big piles and for me with my millions of smalls in an SUV.  The Breadman took a load with my tent, tables and staging things and I took a load of Christmas.  (I sold all my blowmolds!)

We set up the tables and the tent, unloaded the merchandise, put down the walls and left until Thursday.  Yes, Pam, that is a short tent!  We discovered the walls cover more area if we drop the sides down.  

The tables were uneven, so The Bean crawled under there and worked on it like he was changing the oil on a '65 Mustang.  Minus granny's old fruit motif tablecloth, of course.  I couldn't do this show without his help.  Bless that boy.  He knows what to do, when to do it and how to do it.  He sets up my tent and tables and then he helps Lara set up hers too.  If the sun suddenly appears to be on my arm, he disappears to go around the fence and adjust the umbrella so it won't burn me.  He is just the nicest.  :)  

A fun photo shoot set up in the middle of the Junk Ranch.  There were several different spots, but I only saw this one from the car to my booth.  I did not walk around at all this time - I just stayed in my booth selling.  I LOVE my vintage stuff, but most of the fun FOR ME is finding it in the wild.   So, to have it all laid out at my feet takes a bit of the fun away from it.  Besides, I am there to sell - not shop!  I do love to look around to see what others have found and to wonder where they found it. There are also fabulous displays and friendly vendors, so I do like to look around a bit normally.  

My set up is about the same in the manner that I set up my tables and shelves.  This time Lara and I flipped spots and the traffic came from a different direction, so I flipped my set up around.  Next year I will do the tall side on the side where the traffic comes so they will see ALL THE STUFF when they enter the gate.  We also forgot the leave room for us to hang out behind our check out table, so we didn't get to sit close and visit as much we usually do.  SAD FACE.  I only mention this here so I will read it next Spring to remind myself.  

Friday I had Halloween here on the end.  People looked at it, but missed a lot of the things on the inside. 

So, Saturday I moved it inside under the tent and put the framed flashcards and Scrabble words out on the table outside. 

Here is what it looked like inside on Friday.   I was possessed with finding bulk frames so I could take a lot of those giant framed flashcards. Last Spring, I sold about 30 of them, I think.  Friday I sold ZERO.  Ha.  Good thing I didn't spend a fortune on frames for a hundred of them!  After I moved them, I ended up selling quite a few.  I really like this area of handmade and ephemera.  It probably cluttered for some, but to me it's kind of simple.  I like it.  

That sectioned box in the center held individual Scrabble tiles sorted alphabetically.  In the past, I had only my packaged words to sell and people would ask for names or words that I didn't have.  So, I took the individual tiles and wondered if it was worth the space.  HECK YEAH.  One lady spent $35.00 on letters and racks.  I think I probably sold over $200 just in Scrabble tiles.  I had them 2/$1 and no one batted an eye at that.  I still think those things are crazy, but who am I to turn down money?  Now I need to find more Scrabble games!

I sold a lot of my flashcard sets.  I have adapted them and changed cardstock over the last year, so I rounded them all up and sold them for $2.00 a bundle since they were all a bit different.  

Last Fall, I made hundreds of bags full of vintage Christmas ornaments and I sold a TON of them. So, this year I mad even more of them.  I put them in the old bassinettes so people could dig, but I didn't sell as many as last year.  I still sold a lot, don't get me wrong.  But they weren't as popular as last time.  I think they would display better hanging on gridwire, but I don't have space for that there.   

That darn tent leg drives me crazy right in the center, but that's just part of selling outdoors.  I bought that painting of the choir boys last week and I love it.  It is huge as you can tell.  It is a group of choir boys from Washington County School and it was painted by their choir director.  I wish I had a spot for it, but I don't.  I used this area for all the boxed ornaments.  I also had a lot of loose nice old ornaments, so I placed two to four ornaments in a berry basket with shredded sheet music and then put it in a clear produce bad and tied it with baker's twine.  That way the price point was better too.  I sold a lot of them and was told may packaging was creative.  It was purely accidental that I thrifted a stack of berry baskets one day and a case of vintage produce bags the next.  

Maybe this explains why I like that simple table.  BAM.  Lots of stuff.  I mixed up vintage Christmas and fun vintage finds on this wall.  People loved digging in that big bowl of cookie cutters.  Lots of things sold on this wall.  Yay!  

This was on the back and where I could see all day long.  It was a hodge podge of vintage Christmas. I heard the word "Grandma" and "Mom" a lot while people looked around.  The santa mug shelf brought out the most memories.  They were every popular.

Yes, there's MORE!  Inside under the tent.  A mish mash, but a fun mish mash. Lots of this sold too.  

I sold this wreath which made me VERY happy.  The buyer was not who I envisioned buying it.  He was a six foot tall black guy wearing head to toe Steeler's clothes.  He was also very excited about the wreath.  That made me doubly happy!  

I set up a vintage toy area back my the fence.  I sold a few things, but I think I have finally learned that old toys just do not sell for me.  Everyone loves them, everyone looks at them and everyone has memories of them, but no one actually buys them.  So, I will save myself the trouble of taking so many next time.  (But, I do so love to buy them!)  As we were loading in the almost darkness, another dealer stopped by and fell deeply in love with both of the cribs and the red Christmas tree and whisked them all away with her.  That last minute sale paid for dinner!

I love my banner.  See that basket of pinwheels?  I was at Wal-Mart a few weeks ago and they were on sale for 5¢ each, so I bought $4.00 worth.  I gave them to the kids that came into the booth.  They were all so happy to get them!  And the parents were happy that they had something to focus on and not want all the things.  Sorry other vendors.  I had fun handing them out and I hope that I can find something like that to do each time.  I always put soft peppermints out with my business cards and they are always gobbled up.  

My accountant says I did okay this year.  

The Junk Ranch has such a fun atmosphere.  It is fun to be there as a vendor and I can tell the shoppers have fun too.  I always tell them I am envious that they get to shop there!  I still can't believe I have done this seven times!  You'd think it would be the same old, same old.  But it's always different and it's always new/old junk so you have to plan ahead and be prepared when you get there. I always manage to take three loads out, but get it back in two.  That's the sign of good packing and good sales.  When we were all loaded up this time we had one thing left and not one square inch to pack it.  Oddly enough, it was an empty Rubbermaid tub that I could have easily put in the car first then filled up.  But it got overlooked.  I offered it to other vendors, but no one wanted it.  So, I jumped on that sucker and broke it to smithereens.  Not because I was mad (I threw a thirty pound typewriter across the field at the first JR and stomped a hat box to death at one after that), but because I had to get rid of the darn thing.  Those things are pretty tough, but I did it, by golly!

I met a lot of new people, some that follow me on Instagram, some on Facebook and a few that read this blog.  (BTW, if you are the nice lady that wanted a coffee cup pendant  I found one - drop me a line!).  I gained 65 new Instagram followers and found a few new people to follow myself.  It's nice to be outstanding in a field with others that are outstanding in the same field.  Literally and figuratively!  

Thanks again for always coming here for these recaps and for listening to my stories.  And for the virtual back slaps and good lucks.  You guys ROCK!

Junk Ranch Weekend IS HERE

It's time for the Junk Ranch!  Goodness gracious.  I took a very fully loaded SUV and a fully loaded truck out today and the car is loaded yet again for tomorrow.  I hope the shoppers come ready to buy Vintage Christmas, because I certainly have a TON!  

If you remember, the Spring JR had hellish temperatures - nearly 100 and humid and just miserable. It was actually pretty warm earlier this week - but it is going to be in the 40's the next two nights and a high of 70 all weekend.  I AM IN HEAVEN!  This weather should bring the people out by the droves.  Yay!

I'll be back next week with a full report, lots of pictures and hopefully some good stories.  I really appreciate all of you that give me encouragement to do this show.  The comments, the texts, the emails.  They all mean the world to me!  And don't forget - if you follow me on Instagram (HINT HINT) I always post lost of photos on the fly during the day.  @sharamonkeybox that's me!

The Week in Junk, The Booth and Crafty Stuff

I did it.  Closed my booth.  It was a relief to finally be done with it.  But, it was also sad.

I can't believe I added so much happiness to that ugly little dark space.

My friend with a both across the aisle from me posted her sad face in front of my empty spot. 

I brought everything home and sorted it out into two piles - Junk Ranch and Donate.  I think I ended up donating over half of it to Goodwill.  I was just over so much of it.  I kept the best things to take to the Junk Ranch and to put into a future booth.  

I still have a few things over at Lara's booth.  The store posted this fun story this week.  I had made magnets out of old funny yearbook photos from the 1950's.  I cut out names of students and added them to the magnets.  I purposely never put the right name on the right photo.  

But, this lady was digging through them and she was drawn to "Marie",  But then as she looked a little closer - it was her SISTER Shirley!  Photo was taken in the next small town over in 1959.  Isn't that amazing that she happened to be in the store, found the magnets, looked through them AND actually found her sister?  (This is also the third item of mine that has made the store page.  Not bad for items being sold on the down low.)

I was working in the other booth this week when a young college girl walked in, squealed and grabbed a pair of roller skates that Lara was selling.  She sat on the floor, put them on and rolled away.  

She was SO happy!  It was the only item on her wishlist that day and they fit perfectly.  It was truly a Cinderella moment for her.  

I've been thrifting a bit.

This is a Lego model of a Meyn Rapid Plus Breast Deboner made for Tyson Foods.  Now, I know this is about a weird of an item as you can find.  So, I am either an idiot or a genius for buying it.  I think I am a genius.  But, only ebay will tell for sure.  I am sure you will be shocked to hear that there aren't any others anywhere online.  

I thrifted this vintage musical snowman this week.

And this two foot tall Bethany Lowe bottle brush tree.  I also bought a red tinsel tree.  It's not vintage, but it looks vintage.  And, a red tree in Razorback country is a sure sell.

I've been making things.

A pedestal bowl made out of half of a globe.  I coated the inside with the most beautiful turquoise glitter.  It is completely unusable, but it is SO PRETTY.  I need to try to seal it, but that takes the shimmer and shine out of it and that is just NO FUN.

I gussied up an old globe.  It's a Pinterest project, which I usually avoid.  But this one was a good idea.  The seam was coming apart, so I added on the pennant Washi tape for a little happiness.

The Junk Ranch is in twelve days.  But I set up one day, so that's eleven.  Then there's load the car day, so that's ten days.  Then there's a motorcycle rally in town that we attend for two days, so that's eight days.  Then, of course, I need to go grocery shopping and errand running, so that's seven or maybe even six days.  Holy crap.  I'm out of time!  :)  I am actually pretty much ready to do it.  I have priced SO much Christmas, Halloween and other things that I am ready to be done.  Whatever will I do with all my time then??????

I Can See You!

Look at my Visitors!
