I got me some winter junk. Which is never as awesome as spring junk or fall junk. But it is the best I can do, considering that it was mostly dug up from local antique malls, thrift stores and auctions. Not many flea markets or yard sales happening these days.
I love that metal Fresh Eggs sign. I "found" it by the side of the road. The sign says "Self-Service", so I helped myself. Yep, a dozen eggs and the sign. Don't worry - I left a dollar in their box. That Amish family can just make another sign.
A pair of industrial work stools:
Ironstone bowl, green & white painted utensil organizer and two huge spools of yarn. If anyone knows what kind of yarn this is, please chime in. It is for making doilies?
A 1950s Bell & Howell Electric Eye 8mm movie camera. The kids are having fun with this one. When I told them that you couldn't record audio with it, they were like, "that's so dumb - who would want to watch a movie with no sound". Later that day, The Artist won the Golden Globe.
The eleven heavy-duty school posters are two feet square and are double-sided. I can picture a few of them lines up along a nursery wall. Some have Wild Animals on them. Or Pets:
And the red barn on this one:
Here's a green globe desk lamp that Chris found at an auction. I usually don't like this type of modern style, but the color cancels out all of that. And the cool adjustable handle. I searched online, but couldn't find the same one anywhere. Have you ever seen this type of lamp?
A big welcome to my new advertiser: Vintage Marketplace! If you are anywhere near Nashville, TN on February 2nd through 4th, I implore you visit this huge market, filled with sellers of your favorite vintage finds. With vendors like Urban Farmhouse, Pure Vintage Chicago, and Time-Worn Interiors, you just can't go wrong. The Vintage Marketplace is a brand new feature of the long-running Tailgate-Music Valley Antiques Show, and takes place at the Hendersonville Expo Center.
There are also some fabulous special events happening at the show: Sue Whitney from JUNKMARKET will be shopping along with you, and sharing her tips on finding the best junk and styling it in your home. You can also witness the magic of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint live and in person, courtesy of Tawnya Norton (and enter a drawing to win a day-long seminar with Annie Sloan herself, which takes place in Nashville in March).
Anyone planning on going? I Google-mapped it, and Nashville is a mere 13 hours from my house in PA. I could make a family trip of it, similar to our journey to Georgia. That was only 12 hours away. Hmmm....
