Peach Tree 23 - Saturday.

vintage findfs, Peach Tree 23 Yard Sale Event
The second day of the Peach Tree 23 Yard Sale Event found me on the road in Chucks' pick up at 5:15am.

Yesterday's theme was rusty and crusty. (read here)

This day was to have a patriotic theme.

No order to the multitude of photos.

A large twig wall basket, a twig folk art table, and a sturdy white bench.

Sold as a set but the largest suitcase, though matching in color, does not match in style.

Two red suitcases in great shape.

I bought many smalls, but will only bore you with a few.

Two ironstone vases, a turquoise cutlery drawer, a signed double butt basket, a spring votive holder, and the cardboard peach basket with great graphics.

The craziest  fact about the peach basket is the Ridge is the second largest peach-producing area outside of California.


Yet the only peach-related item I could find was from MISSOURI!

All day the semis roared by loaded with peaches.

Hard to photograph this eight-foot wrought iron porch span from a small cottage.

I love the curve of the arch.

An Italian tole tray holds a tole bookend, Cardui tonic bottles, a Madonna head vase, and a tole tissue box.

An iron window grille and several barrel hoops.

A primitive white cabinet who has lost its door..

BUT ...

... has gained an enamelware top that fits perfectly though slightly askew.

The wooden box is a check sorter from a bank.

I love the two dog shelves.

A racket press and a black mesh candle stand.

The large bottle lamp I am in the process of dismantling to use the giant bottle.

One couple had bins of pre-1965 magazines.

i did not have time to sort through them all but picked a few for the cover art and the advertisements inside.

I had to buy the Journal with the war bride on the cover.

The incomplete set of blue and white dishes and the white china bowl with pink roses were bargains.

Blue Ridge - a favorite of mine.

This screams patriotic to me.  The quilt is not in the greatest shape but just the thing for a Fourth of July picnic.

A large Polaron aluminum jug, two Thermos, a carton of 2-liter Pepsi bottles. and a book about What Timothy Knows.

I needed to replenish my prints and paintings at the booth.

A pair of French fashion prints.

A green original oil - very green!

A print of a drum and fife corps.

A couple of those sweet children prints and a framed poem about a friend.

Yesterday I told you I came right home and got busy cleaning and painting.


I will admit I dragged most of Saturday's stuff into the house and went swimming for two hours.

I was exhausted.

So exhausted, I did not even dry off before collapsing in bed for a four-hour nap.

I now have most of the items available in my booth.

I have been neglecting my Etsy shop and hope to spend some time in the coming weeks to remedy that situation.

See y'all!
