Junk Fest

Whoa! It's Thursday already! Where did this week go? I have to show you some of the treasures I brought home from my trip to my grandparents. The small town they live in (where I grew up) was having a flea market of sorts called the Junk Fest! How coud I go wrong, right? Here's what I snatched up there....
Three rolls of this old contact paper! I'm thinking either I need to start covering my whole house in it, or I will be selling a roll or two in the shop.


I absolutely love this clippy thingy! I am still trying to find a good place to put it. I can see this decorated for the seasons, pictures of kids, etc. Can't wait!

Then, on the way home, Sydney and I stopped by a thrift store along the way. Out of town thrifting doesn't get much better!


I love these Japanese mugs...but they will probably end up in the shop as well, just no room!

But this purse? All mine!! It folds up and snaps on the sides to make a smaller bag. Genius, huh!


I also got this green bedspread for $2! I love the color and texture. Now I just have to decide if I am going to keep it whole or cut it up. Decisions, decisions!
Tomorrow I'll be showing off some recents goodies my mailman brought me!! See you then!

That clippy thing is stupendous. You'll do cool stuff with it I am sure.

I love the clippy thing, too! And the color and texture of the bedspread...I understand your dilemma. For $2! Wow.

LOL, I had to laugh, the bedspread looks just like one we had at our house when I was a kid. (only ours was not in as good of shape!) The clippy thing is great, too. I could see it being used for displaying all those Christmas cards that will be coming in a couple of months!

Cool finds, Roxanne! I really am eyeing up that bag you found... if you ever get tired of it I could provide a "new" home for it ;o)
