Any time is junk time. I had a junking good time.
Just had to have these latches to add to my stash. Only $2 for the box full.
Plates were only fifteen to seventy five cents. Cups and saucers fifty to seventy five cents per set. Salt & peppers a quarter each. How can you not take that home?
I bought the clock for parts, the lamp base in the background because its always good to have a base around, the belts for the buckles, the kitchen utensils for their design, the corbel because I love corbels and the blocks just because.
Of course I had to put things together right away.

I went junking two and a half hour's drive away from home. I couldn't believe how CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP the thrift store prices were. Spent a grand total of $25.77 for all of this. I only wish I'd been shopping here before I sent my junk swap package - oh the things I would have sent.

And to get them cheap is just the best. Posted: 8:34 pm on March 22nd
