Yard sale season is in full swing and I've been out early every Saturday on the hunt for cool stuff. So far, the finds have been a bit scarce but I have come across some interesting things for the shop as well as the house. I recently found this cedar trunk for $15 that I just had to buy.
It's beaten up and kind of homemade looking in a way, but I love the color and the hand painted address on the sides and lid. Some people may look at this and wonder what the hell I'd want it for and I say to them, I says, "Because."
I'm also starting a collection of 7s and have three in that room so far. Why? Because is why!
Oh hai there CN wool blanket. Oh how I love freight trains and all things associated. I'm a weirdo, yes, I know.
I got this great 80s floor lamp for $5 that is now hanging out in the living room.
I love the little loop at the top, it's true.
Ahh, this old, rotten bag has it all for me! A military style, a crown, holes and pee stains, yes! This was an old postal bag that was used at a hospital (I know this because it says hospital on the back in magic marker). I found it last week and, for now, it's holding scarves, mitts, etc at the front entrance.
I also got this cute shelf from my mom and painted the top black and left the legs teak. She also gave me an old locker basket to hold our blankets. I have to find one more storage tub of some kind to fill this up a bit more. Something metal would be ideal I think.
Speaking of postal bags and the post office, I haven't been updating the shop for the last couple of weeks because Canada Post is on strike/lockout. So, in a nutshell, I cannot mail anyone anything. There should be a lot of new items in the shop as soon as this bastard situation is resolved (I hope by no later than next Monday).
