Finally I found out where all the baskets in this area have been hiding out. In one sale there must have been over hundred and she said she had sold most of them. I only bought 14. Yes, only.
I have already crafted projects from them which you will see later next week.
I always buy these wicker planter stands. This one was white over yellow over green. Very chippy and perfect for linens in the booth. I think the slight wonkiness of the legs is endearing.
A cookbook from a local school fundraiser in the 1960's. The title is just right for the season. A little frog prince perches on a hooked rug - not vintage, but I loved the faded florals.
Another customer asked me what this was. I answered that it was a tow rope. At least I think it is. It might be a stall gate rope for horses. It is very heavy-duty and I think it will make an excellent farmhouse pendant light fixture. After telling the people around me, they all went off to search for odd items and came back to me to see what they could make from them. The couple sold a lot of things while I was giving suggestions. Maybe I should have charged!
Another metal file card cabinet. I will soon have a suitable stack of them. There was an assortment of pens, pencils, keys, and 16 cents, So the cost was offset by the contents!
Oh, yes, and that thing in the back is a vacuum brush filled with animal fur which went straight to the garbage can.
Who files their vacuum brush?
Maybe if I did, I could find mine.
A little blue bench which will certainly get a makeover and one of those vintage "Learn how to..." booklets.
Now this house does not need any, ANY, more wooden hangers though they are used quite a bit.
You will notice I only bought seven.
Chucks caught me sneaking these in the house after the photo session.
He wanted to know if he could have a couple for a suit.
These are vintage hangers with the addresses on them! You do not use these as hangers!
They are for decoration.
Well, the baskets have been distressed and upgraded from boring to exciting.
The planter is working in the booth with linens and books.
The hangers are hanging from hooks in the craft room.
The bench has been sanded and added to the pile of benches needing paint.
The metal file drawer does not yet have a home, but it has been washed and cleaned out.
I think that enough for this week.
I think I will shop some more this weekend.
