What I Rescued This Weekend (Monday)

Polly, over at "Sassafras Stuff", thought it would be fun to show all our weekend rescues and finds on Mondays. So check out her blog for her weekend steals, and deals.

Since I downsized my booth space I haven't been junkin' as much as I used to, but I can still manage to find a few things without having to do a lot of work.

I love old suitcases. I have a bunch that I stack and use at my house. They are on top of armoirs, under tables, stacked on an old kitchen cabinet, under stairways, used as end know, everywhere...These are usually in pretty good shape, and I have painted some white, some black. I really love 'em, but sometimes its hard to pass up an old junker. I think these make great display props. I have an old beat up black one that has holes in it that I used last year for Halloween and it was great. Didn't sell, but I didn't care. Anyhoo, I found this one and nabbed it. It has the old movie advertisement for "The Shepherd of the Hills", starring John Wayne. Being from the Ozarks, where the true story took place, it's just right up my alley so to speak.

Here are some sewing machine drawers that are in really good shape. I'm going to leave them as they are. Love these for office or sewing supplies.

This cute little pink and white stripe hat box is so "girlie".

And then this great chippy plant stand,
but I think I will put plates on it, then maybe a small ivy.

I love this old cottagy blue chippy chair.
It has great patina.

These are the things I found this weekend.
I love to incorporate all the odds and ends into the displays.
For me, this is one of the best parts of this business.
The creative result of such random items;
how you can put a bunch of pieces together and have such fun doing it.

Have a Great Monday!

  4. I love the suitcase. Shepherd of the Hills is one of my all time favorites.
    Can't wait to see what you do with all your treasures. Wouldn't it be fun to serve pie off that plant stand?

  5. Great finds!!! I didn't get one thing this weekend. Didn't even have time for garage sales & there weren't very many. I've got to get out there -- my inventory is getting low. I'll bring your magazine on Weds. to Leola's. What a great magazine. Jan
