One Man's Trash.......

I don't know about you but I love to see what people find at garage sales, flea markets, estate sales and the like. I enjoy the hunt and the thrill of discovering that perfect adored before treasure. I'm amazed when I see vintage rhinestone earrings marked 75 cents laying on a table at the end of the day. WHY WOULD YOU SELL THESE?!?! WHY DIDN'T THE 100 PEOPLE WHO CAME BEFORE ME SNATCH THEM UP?!?! I suppose it's a good thing that everyone in the world doesn't see the old rusted keyplate or damaged vintage doll as their next repurposed masterpiece.
If you want to join in the "I can't believe you found that, and for that price!" fun, check out Kecia's Flea Market Fridays. I linked up today to show my finds from this past week.
This $2 beaded chandelier adds a touch of funkiness to my already eclectic sunroom.

Vintage 50 cent salt and papper shakers are a nice addition to the kitchen.

Some nice pieces from the 3/$1 table.

Sweet vintage 50 cent babies.....

And twelve cards of yummy vintage lace for $1.
Happy Junkin'!
