Last weekend I went to a local antique festival. It was an outdoor show held at one of our parks along the lake.
My friend, Linda, and I made a day of it.
Despite the stifling heat we managed to;
1) stay until the bitter end
2) Spend way more than we had intended to
3) Fill the van with lots of goodies
4) Have a great time!
So do you wanna see what I got?
Here it comes………..
A rusty AAA motel sign; (loving blue right now)
This 3 piece bistro set, with a tray for the top.
I fell in love with the curves of it, and the petite size.
A Craftsman metal tool caddy, with a wooden handle.
Some old rusty padlocks
A metal folding ruler
Couple rusty old pulleys
A set of 3 pinecone hooks, I thought these were a steal at $5 for the set!
Some galvanized buckets and stuff from a garage sale we stopped at along the way. For 25c a piece, I couldn’t go wrong.
I’m using galvanized for serving pieces in the outdoor kitchen.
A rusty wire basket with a collapsible top. I’m seeing a hamper here, what about you?
A pleated liner made from drop cloth will look perfect on this.
Wooden clothes washing stand
And a tub to go with it. (only found one)
I love the way this folds up so compactly.
Call me crazy, but I love this old lamp.
Something about the way the shade glows when it’s lit just makes me happy!
A couple of retro looking wall shelves.
A yarn winder?
And a green birdcage.
Fun wood garden stakes….
Various rusty railroad spikes and garden trowel.
All in all it was quite the haul!
If you think this is a lot of stuff, you should see what Linda bought!!! :)
I have no idea at the moment what I’ll do with any of it.
Got any suggestions?
What’s your favorite piece?
I’m linking up to Junker Newbie’s “Would you buy it? Wednesday” party. I’m curious to see if you would have bought any of this stuff too, and what you might do with it! Bring on the suggestions!
