OK, we bought about forty of these for a mere $18. Looks like oodles of projects to me. Any ideas?
This is an awesome bottle with an unusual wood handle. $4 for the taking.
Very cool stool for 5 bucks. Ill bet you can guess where this will wnd up. The molds will be used for a holiday project they were each $3.
This gate latch was a splurge at $10, but well worth it. I do love hardware Not sure what it will become, but I know this type of junk always comes in handy so no worries.
Yet another nifty noodle piece of junk. Its perfect for the JM bathroom makeover. Will it hold paper towels or will it become a hand towel holder. Hmm..well have to wait and see. Again $5. This seemed to be the price of the day.
At $6 this time, we bought a complete first aid kit. Not sure if I want to use the cotents, but they make me laugh.
The container alone was worth the 6 dollars. Notice its even JUNKMARKET green. Very cool!
AT $48 each (we bought 2) these were the big ticket of the day. They look like they came from my mothers living room back in the day. Tim asked how they could possibly be in such good condition. I explained that they had been most likely covered in plastic for most of their lives. The plastic covers would only be removed for holidays and bridge club.
WOW! Go ahead call me crazy, but I just had to have this. Most certainly do not know what I am going to do with this. One womans comment as I carried it out said it best. You dont see one of those every day. She was smiling as she said it so I knew I had a winner.

Things were a bit hectic at the old JUNKMARKET yesterday, but we managed to escape for a short time for a shopping experience. With only a couple of hours to spare we could only hit two sales, but somehow we managed to fill up the car. We visited Second Hand Rose and This & That - Now & Then. Take a look and see some of the things we found!

Can't wait to see what you do!

CottageElements writes: I must have just missed you cause I had that First Aid Kit in my grubby little hands! Don't know why I passed it up for just $6! Must have been meant for you. I did buy the neatest box, though. I'll have to post a picture of it. Found a couple great things at Sweet Salvage, too!

Sounds like maybe another contest on what to do with the gravy boats . . .

suewhitney writes: I know. But $18 for the lot... I couldn't pass them up. I told Kimberly we had to come up with as many new ideas as there are gravy boats. Now there's a challenge!

Take care,
