Welcome to another edition of Vintage Junk Treasures. This is where I get to show you what goodies or junk I have found at garage sales, estate sales and thrift stores.
Most of these things will be going to one of the booths this weekend. It was fun finding things that will work well for fall decorating. Now on to my vintage junk treasures!
I love these buckets! I showed them in the post here where I used crimson as my new favorite chalk paint color for fall. They are vintage and marked USA. I have no other information on them. One will come to live with me and the other will be sold.
One bucket has a side which looks like it was sanded or something. That section could be painted with chalkboard paint. Should I put chalkboard paint on it or leave it as found? I will be selling it.
Introducing my new “Junk” sign! How cool is it! It is not old but it is made to look like it is complete with rust and wear. It was 40% off with other yard art at a local store or it wouldn’t have come home with me. I think this looks great with my vintage junk treasures. This is a huge rolling pin found at the thrift store along with the 1960s recipe box. The bread box and wheelbarrow planter is from another thrift store. This little wheelbarrow could be used to hold mini pumpkins and right now it is hauling some filberts from our orchards. The 2 aluminum measuring cups are from a garage sale and I sell these quickly in my booths.
This huge ball of lace was found at Goodwill. My sister, mom, niece and I were shopping and I couldn’t leave this behind. I tried to
make talk one of them into buying it but they couldn’t think what to do with it. I just couldn’t stand to leave it behind. So it jumped into my cart, well, maybe I put it in there. LOL!
I told Vickie, my sister, that it must have at least 10 yards of lace on it. Vickie said she thinks it might have as much as 30 yards on it. I will be measuring off 2 or 3 yard pieces and packaging them to sell. Stay tuned to see how much lace is actually on this thing!
I know it is a machine made lace but it looks like hand crocheted lace.

According to the Fire King reference book, this white bowl is Anchor Hocking Milk White Classic with 22K gold trim. The milk white glass bowl was only made for one year and was part of a line of party ware. A nice vintage gold relish or candy dish with intricate silver holder. These would be great for the holidays.

More vintage junk treasures on an old stool with my junk sign. Cupid Asleep is in a vintage wood frame. It will be joining my collection of Cupid Awake and Cupid Asleep prints. To learn more about these two Cupid prints, read here.
These two McCoy planters are unmarked. According to my McCoy Pottery reference book, these were made in 1943. They are called frog with lotus and came in different colors.
What a gorgeous vintage turquoise Westclox alarm clock! The color is wonderful so it will be used in my decorating for at least awhile. One of the best perks of selling antiques and vintage items is that you can use them for awhile and when you want to change your style you can sell them. We are the lucky ones that deal in vintage junk treasures.
