Rain or shine...there's junk to be found!!April 22nd, 2009 in member junk
OK...home and still trying to get "junk" organized from our fleamarket trip... I not only bought stuff over the weekend, but I also got my junk swap package from bridiemurphy (fun, fun stuff - will share soon), so I'm in a little bit of overload right now...but that's a great problem to have!!!
Well...the weekend wasn't a complete washout (just Sunday)...sometimes it's all about the journey, right?? We made our way to Kentucky over the course of last Friday and Saturday - made some stops along the way, made some new junk friends, and found some cool stuff. I really believe we found the best place in Ohio for junk (outside of a little town called Yellow Springs, Ohio). My haul wasn't that big (fortunately, because between the four of us...we can junk...) - but some cool stuff for sure...my favorites...rusty springs (woo hoo), the plow-thingie, a cool jewelry box to organize my supplies, the cup from the 1933 World's Fair, fabric for my "flea bags", metal stars, the red "heavy metal" flower frog, an old cloth storybook, the cute little planter, etc., etc. - well, I guess I loved it all!!
And, of course my "going home" present - the rickety old hand plow (free) by the side of the road - almost right around the corner from my house - it'll be great in my garden!
I'll be doing another post - with highlights from our journey south - and posting more on my blog by tomorrow - www.sylviasdaughter.blogspot.com.
Show Update: The fleamarket on Sunday was a rainout by noon - some sales - covered our expenses - but we still had a boat load of fun with our girlfriends! So...on to the next show - and sunny skies (we don't give up easily)! I wrote more on my older post: http://www.junkmarketstyle.com/item/10117/on-the-road-again
