One man’s junk is another woman’s “junque”

 

Estate sales are few and far between this time of year but this morning we hit the “one and only” and I picked up a few goodies!

Even I have to laugh sometimes…..really, I bought that and I’m excited that I did!  I know some of you can relate, not everyone, but for those who can I’m sharing these pics…..

I’d have been excited enough if I had only found the brass drawer label holders but there were the two cool metal funnels, the wood box and the thermometer.

IMG_1707 …..not to mention, the bonus odds and ends in the cool wood box!  As if that weren’t enough………

IMG_1711 I found this old leather, remember leather, key holder and the incredibly ornate keys.

All this goodness for the grand sum of $2! 

Woo Hoo!  In case you really are scratching your head….I use these things in my altered art.  I have some plans to try making a few assemblages this coming year.

I'm SO jealous. I love each and every one of these, including the old key holder like what my Grandfather owned. Love those drawer pulls, and of course the thermometer with its cool face. But I am at a loss as to what you plan to do with those funnels. Of course, I see nuts and washers in that box, too. Lucky, lucky YOU!

My dad had a key thing like that in his junk drawer when I grew up. I used to love digging through that drawer...so many fun and really old things. The drawer even smeeled old when you opened it.
Awesome treasures!
