Odd Things That Catch My Eye

 Sometimes I come home with the most strange assortment of junk. Something about each thing caught my eye, right or wrong!
The bovines are early plastic, probably celluloid.  The chickens are W.German 1983. The metal eagle looks like he was once on a flagpole and needed another chance to be loved.  I have no idea why I would buy another yellow mustard tin since I have two in my booth already and can't seem to GIVE them away.  Well, I guess I have a collection now!
I love the randomness of the hunt.  You just never know what you will find.

There is no wrong when we buy what we love! You sure found yourself some sweet treasures this week.

Hi Kathy, it's the unique and different treasures that make junkin so special. Buying what catches your eye is always the best. I think my dad had a little metal tool chest like this orange one. It held drill bits or something like that but was green. Love the cows!
How's booth sales? Best wishes for a great holiday season. xo

Yes the hunt thinking we will find a treasure is what keeps us going.
I did find 2 wood step ladders for $5 each at goodwill this morning. I almost couldn't get them in my small car
No I didn't make my pumpkins

Oh, the tiny teacups! I've been playing catch up on your posts and you've found some incredible stuff! And I love the pic of you and hubby at the brewery!

You may have random stuff, but you have a great eye and will appeal to a large range of buyers
