In a previous post about my latest venture (you can read about that here) I told you how I love auctions, yard sales, thrift stores and curb side finds.
In this post I want to share some pictures of the fun, quirky and sometimes useful vintage things I’ve bought or found.
As some of you may know (if you’ve been lucky, like me, to be able to attend an estate auction) that auctioneers will sell what is called a “box lot” and these usually go for a pretty affordable price.
Over the years I’ve bid on and won some of these box lots. Things are usually moving along at a good pace, so when I win the box lot I don’t usually have time to sort through it at the auction – heaven forbid, I might miss out on the next fabulous item!!
I do, however, unpack and sort carefully through the items when I get home. I sometimes get a puzzled look on my face and other times a good chuckle. The internet is a wonderful tool and it often helps me determine what things are and what they are used for.
I also turn to my Wandaful Things, Trinkets and Treasure FaceBook followers to help me figure things out, those folks are just so darn smart!!
I also bring things home from yard sales, thrift stores or off the curb because I see “potential” in them to be something other than what they originally were – I know all the Pinterester’s out there can understand this one.
I hope you have enjoyed these pictures.
I’d love to see pictures of some fun and quirky things you’ve acquired because I think this stuff is A Wandaful Thing!!
