In the Basement

I posted earlier about my amazing find at a Hill Estate Sale that I went to on Friday. If you want to check it out, you can find it here. I had to dedicate a post to that item alone because it is so Fabulous but I did find many other really great items at this sale. My brother (who I love to go junking with) met me at the sale. After I had gone through the house a couple of times I met John down in the basement and I have to say that was where all the real treasures were. Tons of stuff sitting down there for who knows how long. There were a lot of people crammed up in that hot dirty basement and I was amazed that the items I walked away with had not been picked up already. So let's get to it, here is all the beautiful junk from the basement:

I spotted this lamp and quickly snatched it up, then my brother spotted another one. So we both got one of these beautiful Greist Goose Neck Lamps!


I spotted this gorgeous old galvanized bucket full of junk and emptied it out and threw it in my pile! Never have seen one quite this color. It also has a little spout on the side.

This old riffle box was calling my name! (Sorry about the horrible grass, it seems like the yard guy was just here but with all this rain we have been getting it grows fast!)


Here are a few other things I found upstairs in the house and downstairs in the basement. I love the odd shaped jars with the zinc lids. They are a little different and will look lovely in the sewing room full of buttons.

It was a fun sale and I really enjoyed getting to junk with my brother. I did get a lot more stuff and you can check it out on our Facebook page.

Hoping Mom is ready to get back to it next week, I think there is going to be another great sale on the Hill.

  9. Please, please take me to the hill! I am drooling over that red goose neck lamp and the bottles are such unusual shapes. The bucket is awesome too! I do have one of those old hanging scales. Haven't figured out what to do with it yet. Thanks for sharing your treasures with SYC.

  10. What awesome vintage finds! I love everything! I am featuring this post on tomorrows "Features from TTF #118". I hope you will stop by and grab the I was featured button for your blog! Thank you for sharing with us last week at TTF!

  11. Newbie here. Very nice vintage finds! Those ballerinas remind me of doll templates I had when I was a little girl. I don't remember much about them though other than tracing them on paper and coloring them.

  12. I love the way you've arranged things. We have a round table in our library and I would love to put something like this together on top. Thanks for the ideas!
