I haven't done my Week in Junk posts lately. Oh, don't you fret - I've still been junking! I just have been taking the bulk of it to the Flea Market instead of dragging it home. This morning, on the way to work at the Flea Market, I stopped by the Super Cheap Thrift for about fifteen minutes and managed to pick up a few treasures. Since I am at the Flea Market all day, I have time to price anything I buy that morning and put it out right then instead of bringing it home and waiting a week to put it out. I can't believe I hadn't figured that out before today.
Today I only brought home three things. This stacking glass jar with three separate jars. I bought it for the booth, but I decided it just had too many possibilities for displaying things at home.
I was very happy to find the flower brooch. I have a collection of these, but I bet I haven't found one in a couple of years. I love that this one is red, white and blue. I never wear them, but Hazel has been known to sport one.
That watermelon potholder. Well, you know about those and how I have to rescue them. The thing is about this particular one is that is is bright, bright garish ORANGE. I mean "Don't shoot me in the woods, I am not a deer" orange. Not sure why anyone decided to make a bright orange watermelon. But, since the rule is, I must save all Watermelon potholders, here it is. I will have to bury it in the bottom of the basket. :)
I bought this great old University of Arkansas Catalogue at Goodwill earlier this week. It's from 1905 and interesting to read.
Look here - a year's tuition - $50.00. That was a lot of money back then. But, what a drop in the bucket that is now! I think I will put this on ebay later in the year.
Yesterday I drove across town to pick up something that I bought on our local Facebook Yard Sale page. Something a woman of my age really needs. Really!
The camper folds down flat. It is missing a boat and some furniture, but I don't mind. It's a Weebles set made for Romper Room in the 1960's. I'm not a fan of Weebles and I don't remember Romper Room all that well so none of that matters much to me. But, oh how I love this silly toy! I think it will sit under my Christmas Tree with my tin dollhouse. 'Cause that's how I roll.
Have you bought anything silly, frivolous and unnecessary lately that you LOVE?
