What a fun junking week we've had. Mom and I hit a sale on Thursday and I am really excited about the junk I bought. I actually knew the people that lived in the house. They were my brother in law's Aunt and Uncle. I didn't know them that well but I knew that there would be some interesting stuff there and I was not disappointed. We went through the house pretty quick (there really wasn't much in there) and then headed out to the workshop where I found most of my treasure.
I was immediately drawn to this sign. It used to hang at a pond that belonged to the Crenshaws. I also think that my Daddy may have painted it. Most hand painted signs around Augusta from the late 1950s through the 1980s were most likely painted by my Daddy. I am trying to confirm this with the family but haven't been able to yet. My Mom said it looked like his work. Either way it's a great sign.
On about my third trip through the workshop I spied this under the table and just had to have it (I think Mom rolled her eyes but I think she was happy I found something that I got so excited about). It's a vintage Lily-Tulip Cup Dispenser and a box of 5000 (yes 5000!) unopened cone cups. Clearly nobody else was interested in them or they got overlooked since they were stuck under a table (I always look under the tables).
I thought these were funny things to find in a workshop but hey I ain't complaining. I LOVE THEM!
Three Vintage Party Top Hats!
I found these next two items out in the garage, they also were passed over by others. I love the cards and what do you know - a box of glass swizzle sticks. I may not keep these as I am not really into sea shell stuff, they just don't go with the ones I already have.
Of course that's not all of my haul, I am still going through it. Oh yeah, I did get this cool hat for my brother but unfortunately his head is to big for it. My nephew wants to try it on so I am holding it to see if he can wear it. I love vintage hats on men! Wish more men would wear them.
