I can't tell you how many years I have tried, but failed, to go to the Oronoco Gold Rush days.
Finally, I was home this weekend and the weather was perfect!
I thought it best to take the 'big' truck and I managed to do a pretty good job of filling it up.
I already have a top part of an old hutch with glass window doors but nothing to set it on...this maple dresser with walnut knobs will be just right.
I never expected to find a cubby, let alone one this big...I love it! I'll probably paint it white and hang it vertically on a wall. It's not missing slats, it was made with 3 longer cubbies. On the back is old beadboard.
And I'm always looking for chippy white fence pieces for the garden.
Just the right chair for the garden and a small old bed spring.
Lots of pretty crochet, a satin pink, green and white yoyo pillow and a 1920's ribbonwork hankie holder. Old hand knit baby wool socks and mittens, 2 beautifully embroidered and spotless table runners. I LOVE the bluebird hanger cover the most and the fine thread crochet doily beneath it.
I HAD to have this white vase, it's fairly large with no markings on the bottom other than 4 numbers, also the cool chippy piece.
Does anyone know anything about this vase? Numbers on bottom are 9357, it measures 10" tall and a little over 9" from leaf tip to leaf tip.
A pink, blue and white feedsack dress, pristine length of aqua pillow ticking...
A perfectly chippy architectural piece and an old Catherine Klein framed print which was $1 along with what was written on the back...guess the man thought it was only worth asking a dollar for it! Love it!
I've been keeping an eye pealed for this pink gooseberry set for years but at a good price and clean...this one was so I bought it.
Four iced tea spoons for $1 and a baby spoon for $1 (from the same man as the grape picture)
Two sweet framed prints...
And the Lone Wolf with a wonderfully aged mirror!
I also found 2 very ratty Grandmothers' Flower Garden quilts from the 30's that are only good as cutters at $10 and $15 and a few other small things.
Then...last BUT NOT least....
The Junk Bonanza Gals!
Eydie, on the left, is a friend from about 20 years ago, she owned 2 awesome quilt shops for years but has since moved on to bigger things, one is being part of this awesome group of Junk Bonanza gals. I was so happy to run into her here because I haven't seen her for years.
Next to her is Jane, then of course, is Ki...Queen of "Junk Bonanza" and on the far right is Pam, another gal I have met several times at junking events.
It was fun! The show is massive! I had no idea it was so big...after 7 hours I thought I finally covered all of it only to find an entire area I had missed! Of course I had to see what was there too!
Am I going back next year? Oh Yes!
I had soooo much fun this time!
Thanks for taking time to look at my cool junky finds!
