My Picks

I received a tip from someone on where to find some 'good old things'. I consider myself a picker and find my treasures when and where I can, but this was a first for me. Someone was pointing me in the right direction, helping me out. So this past weekend Tool Man and I became official. Yep, we are not fooling around anymore and considering this a hobby...this is now our business!

You can read about our announcement here.

And that wonderful tip led to these amazing finds.


I had posted about our cool vintage finds full of rust and crust here.

Today, I would like to share some of my other finds.  
Old keys and I keep them or sell them?

Time nice to display or should I craft to my heart's content?

And question of day...does anyone know what these pieces are below?
Yes, I bought them without knowing what they are...but they are so cool!

I love my aqua and a vendor gave these dishes to me...yes, he did!

Weathered wood and rust...this will be for sale in our new shop, for sure.

This little white dish is cute...even looks better in contrast to the weathered wood. Maybe it needs a little nest and bird. We'll see!

Come and see our shop when we open...we have other treasures just waiting for the perfect home.

I am linking up to Leigh and Suzanne and their blog parties.
It has been ages since I've done so! 
Lots of vintage and thrifty finds to drool over.
Go see what the fuss is all about!

All such great stuff! I love the clock faces and think you should put those in your store so I can buy them :-)
I love the box with the rusty dividers too...oh and of course I love the locks and keys (OK...I love it all)
You have a great eye for picking.

A new picking source! You must have been like a kid in a candy shop! It looks like it was a good one too.

My first thought on the metal doodads was inkwell parts but then I thought maybe the base and stopper for old perfume bottles?? Dunno.

What FANTASTIC goodies! All my favorites - weathered wood, old keys, rusty things and aqua and white.

Wow! I love those aqua bowls! The clock faces are pretty cool, too.

I so love that first picture. My son has a printers box almsot like the one you've shown. I've tried for ages to talk him out of it to put some of my miniatures in..but no go.
And those Dr Pepper and Rc cartons..,
well,if I had kept all of them that came through my grocery store through the years,I would be a rich woman. The delivery people always made a fuss when they had to pick up a makes me laugh now when I see one,thinking back to all that time.
I just love all your treasures..and I wish you great success with your business.
Happy VTT.have a great weekend.
