Earlier this week I went to my favorite little junk shop on the square. I found a few treasures, including the following:
Two partial rolls of vintage wallpaper. There is still a decent amount of paper left in each roll. A steal at 25 cents per roll.
Two vintage Foley glass-top juicers. These little aluminum juicers were in good vintage condition, and another bargain at 49 cents each.
Yesterday I decided to go up to a flea market on the square that I never find any good stuff at. But, time was short, and I needed to get out of the house for a little bit, so I went up to look around.
I actually found a couple of finds. This pair of Sexton wall hangers is dated 1969 with the number 151 also stamped on the back. Looks to me like they'll hold votive candles, making them a pair of candle sconces. Now I'm on the lookout for a couple of vintage red glass votive candle holders to use on them. A bargain, in my opinion, at $5 for the pair.
I also found this vintage kitchen light globe / shade. I have absolutely no idea what to do with this. It won't fit any of the light fixtures in my house. Do any of you have any suggestions? I bought it, even having no use for it, as it was priced at an unbelievable 15 cents!
I have come to the realization that I have a growing amount of vintage items that I have no use for. My house is full! I think that I'm going to have to sell some of it. I was going to put a lot of it in a garage sale, but it isn't really garage sale stuff. I don't want to put vintage glassware and the like in a garage sale. I'm thinking I might need to get a booth at a flea market / antique mall. I'm not too big on the idea of eBay or Etsy as I have absolutely no time to get things to the post office. I work out of town and the post office is usually closed when I leave for work and when I get home. Plus, I'd be terrible at figuring out shipping costs. I'd rather just put it all in a booth somewhere. I'll have to give this a little more thought.
Have a great Sunday!
