Junk For Joy

Monday, February 17th, 2014

On Saturday I drove up to My Favorite Junk Shop.

I thought it was warm but by the time I got to Hopkinsville the sun was behind the clouds and the wind was blowing!

That didn’t keep me from junkin’.


junk tools

The shop is slowly being organized and spruced up.

They haven’t made it to this bin yet.

I can’t wait to see what goodies are buried there.

I usually just scan the top because I don’t want to cause an avalanche of rusty tools.


brown bottles

bottles and more bottles


ceramic dog

looking a little out of place



framed prints

framed photos


green and yellow wood car

Since my favorite color combo is green and yellow I couldn’t pass up the little wood wagon/toy thingie.



junk hardware

assorted hardware


junk shopping

The windows just keep piling up.


salt and pepper

salt and pepper sets…or singles



tables for painting

I purchased the two matching end tables but left the kids table behind.


wood twin bed

I threw the twin headboard and footboard, plus rails I,n the back of the truck also.

So far no one guessed which piece I was in love with on Thursday’s vintage rotary dial telephone post.

It was the surveyors tripod. I love the bright colors.

May be going back for it!

Leave me a little note below.

I love hearing from you.

You only have to leave your name (first name is ok) and your email address, then your comment.

Your email address will not be shown on my blog.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week,

    wow…what a great place! and I hope when you go back for the tripod, it’s there!! I call that a “pink plate moment” years ago my sis saw a pink depression cake plate…she decided to wait…well when she went back…gone……my other sister finally found one on eBay for her…but that took 2 years or so….so when I see something I ask myself…will this be a pink plate moment?? lol
