Well, after a LONG week of being stuck inside the house from all the snow, I finally decided to head out and have some fun. My junk’n friend and I headed out to our local consignment shops to see what we could find. During the summer months we usually spend most of our time checking out all of the yard sales in the area, but during the winter there are none. . . so we were having withdraws. We like the yard sales much better than the consignment shops because you can usually get a better price . . but right now we are ready to take whatever we can get!!
I would consider today to be a very productive picking day. I came home with quite a few awesome finds and only spent around $30. Wanna see what I found?
My first find was this bright and cheery Cheerios pitcher. For some reason I am always drawn towards old brand marketing items. They just remind me of vintage America. I have decided that I am going to display this pitcher in my kitchen window and in the summer I will put our garden flowers in it. It will be perfect!
My second find was this large old fashioned style bicycle. Ok. . for some reason I LOVE bicycles. No idea why. . I just do. . . This baby has found its new home in my dining room, but I will probably be moving it around shortly because I have a new project I am working on that this will be perfect for!!
While we were junk’n I also found this amazing piece. Again. . loving the vintage America marketing items. Coke is one of my favorites so I just had to have this one. This vintage tray ended up costing me a bit more than any of the other items but I was in love. This vintage tray will be soon making its way onto the center of my vintage, yellow 50’s dining room table but we have to wait until our puzzle is finished first. 🙂
