It's Hunting Season

I have been a busy little bee with treasure hunting the last little bit here.

Vintage Treasure Hunting I was fortunate to be two doors down from an estate sale last weekend.  Most of the stuff I got there is not in this picture, but more info on that to come.  However, I did get that great big paper cutter right down in front.

Although I still need to finalize the date, I am going to do another sale this fall so I am trying to gather up items for the vintage side of things.

I found several grate scales.  I actually have two of the bright blue ones.  And there is a chalkboard easel, an old tool box, a typing table, some old Nabisco racks, an enamelware pot and a beautiful apron with the guarantee label still on it.

Lots of great bottles, some shell bookends, a Borden’s bin and because I couldn’t hold back the Jersey girl in me, a great Wildwood ashtray.  Not a fan of smoking, but the graphics were too great to pass up.

I also got a whole mess of children’s chairs.  The painted ones are a hot mess, but I really think they will be great with some work. vintage treasure hunting

And, I got some AMAZING enamelware finds, all in really great shape.  The tray is huge, the footed bowl with the cover is incredible.  This is my second small tub of the season and the polka dots on the bucket are adorable.  I think I am keeping the tray and the blue bucket, but the rest is destined for the sale.

Don’t have room at my house for much more stuff without some things having to go out as something comes in.
