Weekend Treasure Hunting

Weekend Treasure Hunting

I’m waiting right now for Ron to get home from his breakfast with the guys so we can go to this awesome Estate Sale I found on Estatesales.net.  They are the place to go to find great sales.  This one is a ways away from our house, but that’s okay.  I love finding new things to list in our Etsy stores.  Last week we found a wonderful sale.  It was so good, we visited it twice.   Here’s some of what I found.

This is a pale pink depression glass bowl.  It’s footed and has a nice floral design on the wide rim.

I love boxes.  Any boxes.  With lids or without.  And I especially love boxes with writing.  This is an Armour Cloverbloom box that is still in excellent condition.  The writing is still bright.

Everyone one loves Carnival Glass.  The colors are so vivid!

This is a Johnson Farm Dairy milk jar.  I can remember milk coming in these jars with the cardboard stopper on the top.  Even the stoppers are collectible now.

This pound size butter dish is wonderful.  It had a couple chips on the rim of the lid.  That didn’t matter because it’s already sold in the store.

This is an American Tool Chest, vintage.  Some of tools are original, some I’m not to sure about.  But some little guy or girl is going to love it.  Did you notice it was another box.  That’s what caught my eye first.   The tools were a surprise!

My Etsy stores have evolved over time.  I started out mostly listing glassware.  Now I don’t limit the stores.  One of the stores has mostly vintage hats, vintage sewing patterns and belt buckles with some other unusual things thrown in.  Next time I’ll show you some of my vintage hats and later the patterns.  I love the styles from the past.  I also found a great blog that tells how to date vintage patterns.  I’ll share that with you too.

I am still rusty from not blogging for a while.  I hope you’ll bear with me.  I’m not sure what direction we’ll go with the blog, but I’m hoping we have fun!

Junkblossoms Is Back! I’m So Excited!

Junkblossoms Is Back! I’m So Excited!

So much time has passed since my last blog post.  Our lives changed and new things took our time.  If you remember junkblossoms was all about repurposing our junking finds.  We kind of got burnt out.  We no longer had the room to work or the ideas to bring to life.   Our creative minds went blank.  We were also getting older.  We had to make some decisions that fit our health and age.  Do you remember that we had booths at a flea market?  We closed them down.  So we no longer had an outlet to sell our recreations.  But we didn’t stop junking.  Instead we opened an Etsy Store.  Then Another.  And then Another.  Junkblossoms 2.0 is where we’ll share our junking finds and show you our stores.  We still go to estate sales and yard sales.  We’ve been having so much fun, we want to share that with you.  I have learned so much about so many things.

Today I’m going to share just a few photos of the things we’ve listed in our stores.  The store names are Junkblossoms, Junkblossoms2 and Blossomprintsandmore.  We hope you will visit the stores and give us some feedback.  Here are some examples of the things you will find in our stores.  In the future, I’ll write about what I’ve learned from some of these Items.  Junkblossoms isn’t going to be just about vintage items.  I’m going to share the everyday things that make me happy and hopefully you’ll enjoy it.  So here we go……Junkblossoms 2.0
