Well, it’s been a busy couple weeks getting everything from the auction organized, priced and into the booth. I LOVED the auction and am going to another on next Monday and can hardly wait to see what kind of treasures I will find there!!!
In the meantime, my friend June and I entered the “amateur pickers” contest that is being held by THE American Pickers on the History Channel! They are doing a show consisting of multiple two-person teams who will be sent on picking ventures, and will be eliminated throughout the show, and the last pickers standing will win $10,000! It’s a long shot, but wish us luck!!! Here’s one of our pics we sent in… !
So I recently made a trip to the thrift stores and scored a few neat items that I thought I’d share. I haven’t been “thrifting” in a while, so it was fun to get out treasure hunting again. I found this vintage steamer pot which immediately caught my eye because of the cool americana blue color with the white eagle design. I also got a little glass candy jar with a big wooden top. I plan on painting the top and maybe jazzing it up by adding a star applique or maybe stamping it. I will be sure to post an “after” pic!
The steamer pot even had some New England inspired recipes on the back!
Love this heavy, cast iron duck bell, and boy does it ring LOUD! Also got this ornate little frame…so cute!
I found some cute country themed items that I just had to scoop up, including a cute lady bug themed basket, a faux enamelware soap dish, and an adorable ceramic pitcher.
The highlight of the night was finding this vintage hurricane lamp with a very cool honeycomb glass pattern! It’s in mint condition, and I know that once I clean it up, I will likely make quadruple what I paid for it. That’s what you call a junker’s high!!!
And because it’s been so long since I have taken some new pix of my booth, I thought I’d share some updated photos! Note all the cool new auction pieces….!
Well, hope ya’ll have a great night and I will be back soon! I hope to have lots of cool new stuff from the auction to show you next week!!! Can’t wait to get my YUUUUUUUP on!!!
