Junkin Jackpot!!!

So last Friday I ran out for lunch and  
I saw this little sign......
Estate Sale!!

And you know what that means!

I blew off my hunger pains and followed the signs!

It was a little house on top of the hill,
and when I walked in the garage.....
well, lets just say there was a light glow to it,
I heard angels singing.......

There was so much great stuff!
I immediately dug in and started a pile!

This was the first item I wrote sold on!

Sorry it has been raining here so I tried to take pictures
before the downpour started again!

Look at this, the man who lived here built this table!
It ain't fallin apart!!

Look at this bad boy!!

And look at these lockers that were in the garage!

There were 2 of them.

Here they are in the barn.
I wish the rain would stop!

I know April  May Showers bring June flowers.......

So cute, and I do have the shelves.

Look at this cuteness,
a wooden tray!
Can't wait to paint that!

And this old Avon bottle.
How cute would this be with soap in it.
Gotta figure out what to do where it's chipped
on the lid. 

There were stacks of song books.

And your basic junk,
that I can't live without!!

Bet you can't tell what year I was born.....

 There were stacks and stacks of license plates. 
I tried to find some with The Boyfriends birth year
but, they didn't have license plates back then....

An old bed, for.........$10!!!!!
It's sideways in the barn,
but you get the idea.

The foot board and the side rails are in the corner.

I can't wait to shabby that bed up!!! 

Cute little vase.......


And in this trash bag

Old feed sacks.......
Can you contain yourself!!!! 

So far this one is my favorite!!

And as another tease.......
this is the rest of the junk!!!

Just crammed in the shed!! 
Rain please stop!!!! 
I must paint!!!

I am really excited about this table!!

And yes that is a bathtub in my yard!!
I put flowers in it in the summer 
and it's great for parties!
Fill it up with ice and it's a giant cooler!


  1. When one gets excited about feed bags it's time for a reality check, Ha!!! Great awesome finds...lucky you!

  2. Um feed bags are amazing. Can't believe they were just sitting in a trash bag.

    Great finds!

  3. Oh My! Oh My! Oh My! You scored BIG!!! I hope the rain stops soon!!!

  4. WOW! That really is a jackpot! I would LOVE that bed and the table. I like the tub/cooler idea too.

  5. WOW! What a haul. I love those feed sacks and lockers. Yes, you do need it to stop raining. Who needs food when there's junk to buy?

  6. Wow, what a load. I love that table too. And the feed sacks. And the Hoosier glass.

  7. Great finds! You hit the motherload!!! Can't wait to see what you do to the table!

  8. Wow! I'm so jaleous... But how did you bring all that back home? It's just so lucky that you found those feed sacks in that old plastic bag!

  9. You really did find some awesome stuff! Love that table!

  10. wow - treasure trove of goodies. And what a novel idea for using an outdoor bathtub! I never thought of using it for cold drinks -- that would be so much cuter than a standard drink cooler!

  11. Are you freaking kidding me?? Did they even know their tag sale was a DIYers dream come true? My favorite is the bed. Can't wait to see what you do with it!

    Take care,

  12. Love the table and benches! I would have forgotten about lunch too!!

  13. Are you in trouble over the license plate/birthday crack?
    with a haul like that I wouldn't have gone back to work. I'd stay to play.

  14. What great finds! Love the table too! can't wait to see what you do with it :) Thanks for stopping by Beach Cottage Good Life Wednesdays.

  15. wow! you so lucked out! very cool stuff.

  16. wowsa...i'm droolin!!!! awesome treasures!!! i love opening up a big bag and finding awesome treasures inside!!!!! it has only happened a couple of times, but it is so fun when it does!!!

  17. I'm a sign chaser too...nice digger you found! Enjoy junking this weekend!

  18. WOW!!!! That is some good junk!! I LOVE the table and the bathtub in your yard. I was so close to purchasing one a few years ago but never did. I'm so jealous. Enjoy your new finds and I can't wait to see what you do with it all!!

  19. Jane: this is awesome! Please read my post about what they are charging for license plates at the flea market in my area. I LOVE the shape of the tray. Can't have enough.
