I am still on the hunt for junk, but most of it goes straight to one of the booths or gets tucked back for the Fall Junk Ranch (Sept. 30 isn't far off...), so taking photos hasn't been on my mind. But, you dear people like to see the junk so here is a bit that I have remembered to take photos before I squirreled it away.
Thursday I went to my beloved Super Cheap Thrift. Home of the 5¢ drinking glasses and 25¢ shirts. I really never find anything spectacular or particularly valuable there. But, the prices are SO low that I can spend $5.00 and price that batch for about $100 to to to the booths. It adds up! The first thing I spotted was a Leap Frog Globe high on a shelf. I picked it up and there wasn't a price on it, so I sat it back up on the shelf. A lady walked up and asked me how much it was and I told her that it wasn't priced. That's when a lady on the other side said the sweetest words I have EVER heard. "Everything in the entire store is 25¢ an item today." As my mind was racing at the possibilities, I saw that lady's arm starting to move and I SWOOPED up and grabbed that globe. MINE. Sorry lady. When I got it home, it worked but it would short out every so often which is GOOD because I wanted to dismantle it and just keep the globe for a project.
After the SCT, I found a yard sale that I wish I would have found earlier in the day because there was great stuff at great prices. Every thing in the photo was 25¢ at the SCT or the yard sale. All the Santa's will go to The Junk Ranch. The rest to be scattered among the booths and JR. Although, I did have to keep those tiny pool balls. TOO CUTE.
At the yard sale - a nice mishmash of PINK Melamine dishes. The platter and serving bowl will go on ebay and the rest to the JR.
This super sweet Ohio Art lunchbox isn't the type I normally see - no cartoon characters or super heroes. I think I will use it at the JR to hold milk cap magnets.
This is a rack for the old wooden Playskool puzzles. It's on ebay right now.
I saw this plaque at Goodwill today and I took a photo of it because I thought it was so funny. Then I decided that I really needed to own it. So, now I do! (I do not want a fur coat or diamonds though.....)
I have been on the hunt for a globe for awhile. I like them and they are an easy sell - but hard to find! This one was being pushed out on the cart at Goodwill when I walked in so I grabbed it! The equator line was missing, so I added a strip of fun pennant Washi tape. I want to try decoupaging or vinyl letters on a globe so this might be a good candidate.
I was greedy and took these from Lara at our yard fail sale. That big bunny in the back with the baby carriage is really big. I love them all and have never seen any like these out in the wild.
Also stolen from Lara - the sweetest drying rack. I mean - LOOK AT THE CUTENESS. I die.
I picked up a box of vintage Lincoln Logs at a sale. I was sorting them out and The Bean said that he had never had any Lincoln Logs. So, we built some houses out of them. ;) I feel like a terrible Mother for not having thrifted him some Lincoln Logs when he was little. (He did not lack to toys, I promise you.) We played a while and now they are Junk Ranch bound.
I will try to do a better job of taking photos of my junk. I have new neighbors and I haven't wanted to scare them off with me in the side yard taking random photos of random junk. Not yet anyway.
Have you found any good junk lately?
