Well I certainly did not have high hopes for today. I had to work and knew I could not be out and about hunting for junk. I decided to try to hit a couple of sales early this morning before I had to arrive at work. The first sale advertised a lot of vintage glass and other vintage items, however most of the glass was chipped. They did have a pretty vanity that needed a little work but I was a little to late on the draw and someone else snagged it right out from under me. I was so disappointed, it just sucked the joy right out of me. I did manage to pull myself together and purchase the following:
I also stopped by a consignment sale but did not find anything so I headed on to work. I told mom that I would be off work around 1:30p and she needed to be on stand by. I had a lead for the afternoon. A few months ago I had a plumber come out to do some repairs and he noticed that I had several vintage fans. He asked me if I would like to come out and look at some old stuff he wanted to get rid of including several old fans. He told me in his line of work they often come across old junk and he usually takes it home with him and that his wife was nagging him to let some of the stuff go. So we made a date for this afternoon and it did not disappoint. Here are the items we picked up from the plumber:
So I felt like I redeemed myself for losing out on the vanity. I am keeping the small Emerson Jr. fan and the post office box for myself. Mom is keeping one of the fans and a little watch. I have posted more detailed photo's here on our Facebook page. I think I am going to play on Pinterest for a while.
Hope you all had a great day and found many treasures.
