I haven't had much time this summer for junkin' or upcycling or repurposing. The truth is, I changed jobs. I quit my job selling furniture, (at 59) and went back to my previous job at a real estate title company. It's termed part time, but during the summer, it can turn to full time on any given week. I didn't have too hard of a transition, however, I am 10 years older than I was when I used to be a closer, and I am not as good as multi-tasking as I once was. Evenings are busy tending to flower gardens.
I decided at 7:45 this morning to check the newspaper for garage sales. I left the house with little primping five minutes later, and headed for the first sale. Although these are still made, I think this Brannock Device is vintage. I bought this for 50 cents and JUST for fun.
This was hanging on the wall of the garage at the sale and marked $2. I asked the lady what it was for? She said she had it beside her old wall phone for a calendar and phone book. Not sure what I will do with it yet but I see possibilities.
I got this old rusty, weathered shovel for $1.
For right now, I added it to this assortment of yard & garden tools with similar patina, however I do love to make signs with old shovels.
Like this: Happy Fall shovel head.
I purchased this "?" for 50 cents. It will hold some sort of dowel for a junk project.
50 cents for a wooden candle base. These are fun upcycled pedestals.
I just love upcycling and repurposing bread or cutting boards. This might not be vintage but the metal handle is fun and I think I can come up with a fun re-purpose.
Vintage Bunnykins for $1.50. So cute! What can I say?
50 cents for a three or four wheeler tire rim.
And for free, a Sportcraft croquet set. It's not super old but I love displaying croquet and bocce balls. Maybe we will play...All the pieces are here.
