Another junk haul! I made it to my favorite junk shop last week. I bought mostly small items. This is one time I really didn’t need furniture since I got all those pieces at the auction a couple of weeks ago.
This is it. The junk shop. It’s been cleaned up a lot. I need to find a few old photos showing what it looked like before the city made Mr. Butler put up fences to hide most of the stuff.
This is the front door to the shop that’s located in Hopkinsville, Ky. Mr. Butler and a few of his sisters run the place. If you are ever in the area be sure and stop in.
I started a pile of stuff outside that included a window frame, an fairy statute, a magazine rack, and a log wood holder (I think).
I didn’t buy the miniature doll house although it sure is cute.
I found some frames, a mirror and a pair of green chairs.
This area of the shop holds a bunch of old tools and machinery parts.
I took the following photos after I unloaded at home. I laughed when I spotted the first green chair at the shop. I called it a wide bottom chair. Those seats are wide.
This little fairy statue is so cute. Don’t have plans for it yet. May keep it.
I really don’t know why I bought the magazine holder. I will probably take it to the shop as is and price it really low.
Vintage mirrors like this one always sell easily.
The three wood drawers are homemade out of plywood and ugly drawer handles.
I like the two frames especially the one on the top. I’m not going to paint it because the color and aging is nice but I will paint the other frame with all the details and then distress the paint like heck.
I think this is a wood holder maybe to sit by a fireplace or an outdoor firepit?
I also got the two galvanized buckets. They make great plant pots. That’s it for me. What did you like the best? Leave a note if you have time and thanks for being here, Kathy

Kathy, I love the two white picture frames, although the fancier one is my favorite. I also covet those buckets! Not so sure about those green chairs! Fun haul, though. Thanks for sharing it.
LOVE your stash, Kathy....especially because I actually went to Butlers two years ago (prior to the epidemic), based upon your recommendation. It was a total blast and we also loaded up some fun treasures. From your haul this week I love love love the green chairs! Thanks for sharing!
Loved this last Junking haul ! It's a toss up between frames and those great door header boards. I could think of lots to do with those! What fun.
Good Morning love all your treasures here in South Texas we dont find many treasure like that.......enjoy !!!
You got some really nice treasures there.
Them green chairs look to me like old school chairs that teachers used sitting at their desk; hence desk chairs. I'm over 70 yr. old and I do remember teachers sitting on them desk chairs. They where good, sturdy chairs but where unpainted; just natural wood color.
That log holder would be nice sitting by an outside firepit
I like the galvanized buckets - they always make cute pot planters and sometimes I use them to make gift baskets for Easter or valentine gifts.
I haven't been to Hopkinsville since the tornado - glad Butler's is okay and wasn't damaged.
I love your blog and all the treasures you're goog at finding!
I'm from a little village in France and also like hauling at junk and renovate and paint etc....
I'm still working full time but I gonna retire soon ;-)))
Thanks for you blog and advice
I have one green chair like yours. CAn’t Wait to see what you do with those. Mine has a perfect paint job so I just put it in my shop but it hasn’t sold.
