Barn Sale Treasures - Part 1

My husband and I don't get babysitters so we can go on a date night...we find someone to watch the kids when we find a good barn sale. 

 Mud, rust, dirt, old junk and lunch at Wendy's is our idea of a good time :).

Romantic, isn't it?


When I found this sale on Craig's List, I was thrilled because we went last year and I knew it was well-worth the 2-hour round trip drive.

The cubby shelf that went with these old hardware drawers was also there...but sadly, we had no way to get it home. (I'm still pretty emotional about it)

Obviously, still need to clean things up - but I was too excited to share with you.

Neat funnel - haven't seen one with a handle before.

A small metal pulley

There were countless piles of books and magazines and pictures...
I found this little box of vintage thumb tacks.
I can't even tell you how many boxes I couldn't get to...
or how many times I almost found myself lying in the middle of a mud puddle as I climbed over old tubas and mounted fish carcasses.

Made in the U.S.A. (One of the tacks from the box above)

Isn't this metal watering can lovely?

After about an hour of rooting through boxes, I could tell my husband was ready to go as he seemed to inch closer and closer to our car every time I looked for him.

I'm planning on adding these items to my Etsy shop once I have a chance to clean them up...I have a couple wreath orders I need to finish up first.

Stop by my newly improved Facebook page if you'd like to see some updated pictures of my booth space.

Please stop back in the next couple days to see the rest of the fun stuff we found...

Looks like my kind of sale, I usually take my photo's before cleaning everything up too! I can't wait to get my treasures home and take my pictures. I love, love, love the watering can!

Sounds like fun! My husband and I did something similar on a recent date--so much more fun than a movie or something! I found some treasures like these in our barn when we moved out to the country. Lots of fun!
