Fun Finds!

Pin It
Well, between recent visits to antique stores, garage sales, and estate sales this past week, I came across some fun, fun things!

I found this antique scale at my favorite antique store. I'm not sure what it was used for, but it is heavy duty! It still works and I am tempted to get it. For what? Don't know the answer to that one. Sometimes you just have to grab those unique things and they find a use/place in your home over time. It has a fabulous patina, it's industrial, it has wheels, and it functions...all things I love and look for when I'm out junking! I haven't ruled it out yet (if it's still there!).

I found this bag of vintage clothespins for 50 cents. They have a great patina, don't they? They might be put to use, used for some other creative purpose or project, or they might end up as jar filler. Who knows!?

Here are a couple fun books I found. "One-minute Organizer"...who doesn't need that? Seems to be some good tips in there. Should be fun to explore. Now the other book is very interesting. If anyone wants to know how to make plastic out of milk or myriad other MacGyver-type things, just let me know. It gets a bit technical for me when it gets into wires and other things.

Now, for the best find of the week! Ya' gotta love estate never know what you'll find! Further words are not needed! Enjoy...
