May Thrifted Finds

Love it when Garage Sales are back. Favorite activity.

Funky fun stuff, shabby stuff, metal stuff. I buy what I love and share many of my finds as a reseller in an antiques mall.

Rusty, lots of wear, covered in years of dirt, best find in metal this month - old tin lunch boxes.



May has been a good month for finds. Handy little vintage aluminum coffee press.



              Great little wall pocket, totem motif.




Grey poodle, plastic dispenser cow (spring is sprung) and a painted wooden loon.




A milk feeder (for calves) vintage pail, lots of great wear and a worn vintage large spool for a handle.



Pale blue inside, white outside, black lined vintage baby bath, great wear and dings and the label is intact.


Another rusty colorful find, a metal tool box,


and finally, some vintage tin party horns.
