Junk Stores

Well still no estate sales but my overwhelming need to rummage through junk drove me and Mom out Saturday morning to hit some of the local junk stores and one church sale.

The one thing I do like about shopping at church sales and junk stores are the prices. Things can be found for less than a dollar. We hit one church sale, the Salvation Army store, the Catholic Social Services and last but not least our favorite junk shop over in the North Augusta.

I am happy to say it was enough to satisfy my craving (well at least until next weekend) and I am pretty happy with my haul.

Isn't he just the cutest thing!

A local piece for my collection.

Just loved the box!

Story Book Doll, she needs some TLC so she may get a little makeover.

I think this is my favorite find, Babbacombe Pottery Fox string holder, when put your scissors in it looks like he is wearing glasses. He is chipped on the back and a small chip where the scissors go but I didn't care. He is already hanging on my wall upstairs. 

Small Doll - I know nothing about, but she cleaned up pretty well, thank goodness she has that big old hat because she is completely bald, I need to find her some hair.

I just adore this old folk art doll, she is stuffed with saw dust and I love her clothes!

A few old pins from the church sale.

Lots of Ephemera! I was like a pig in mud digging through a box of old papers, I found some lovely old greeting cards.

These cards were kind of special, they each have a little story book inside them.

This is a hand painted piece. Have no idea of the date but I am assuming possibly an art student painted it for an upcoming exhibition.

 The clover pin is worthless but I just love little pieces like that, the heart is sterling/marcasite.

Babbacombe Pottery mark.

Hope you are having a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!


  1. Some cute things, some so ugly they are nice things

  2. I love that fox!!! You did quite nicely there!

    Where do you go in North Augusta? I've been to the Antique Mall out there where Distressed Donna Downhome has a booth, and I really don't know much about the area, but we will be going back to visit in October.

    You got such a nice bunch of paper stuffs, too.

  3. Oh wow - some wonderful finds! I love all the old greeting cards!
