Whee! Every year on the first Saturday of June, there is the Peach Tree 23 Yard Sale event.
It is forty-four miles down State Highway 23 from Batesburg-Leesville, SC to Modoc, SC.
I have never made it all the way from end to end - just too much and too hot!
I had a short list and vowed to keep to it.
I wanted farm fresh - straight from the barn - rusty, crusty delights.
And I found them.
I purchased the old scissors and rusty hook first thing.
They are for decorating - not using! (Chucks!)
I would love to say I never pass up these vintage metal shelf units, but I did leave one behind because of the price.
This one was a deal.
A galvanized sorting tray - quite long.
Missing dividers, but ...
It has the numbers handwritten down the sides.
Old wall-mounted cupboard in pink, green, and white.
The door will have to be sanded so it can close.
Yes, that is a glass knob on it.
You have sharp eyes to spy it under all that paint.
I had metal milk crates on my list and found two.
You can't make up patina like this.
Yes, I do see all the dirt and spider webs.
A lovely black straw bonnet with beautiful millinery flowers bedecking it.
No, I did not buy the head.
I bought the head before I thrifted before I went yard saling.
It's a long story.
All three items on my list -
A rusty wheel.
A rusty can.
A typing table.
Check, check, check!
On the list -
A wooden ironing board.
In Ward, SC, we spied doors and windows.
(Or at least I did. Chucks was trying to drive fast through the traffic so I would not see the old doors. How silly of him - he knows I have door-dar!)
I only bought one - you can see why.
How funny is that guy showing his wife who was driving down the highway things she might want.
My favorite find of the day was this stack of tin ceiling tiles.
Both rusty and crusty.
Only need a little dirt removal.
Patina is perfect.
How far did we travel?
About twenty miles.
I had a mostly filled truck and had checked off many items on my list.
Plus it was 10:30 and the fog was burning off.
Sweltering heat ahead.
We went home to relax in the AC.
We are wimps.
