I braved the crowds (I swear everyone was out today!) and went to Denio's Farmers Market and Swap Meet and I wanted to share the goodies that I got.
First off, I got this rusty old mail holder. Even though it has a great patina, the guy selling it mentioned it just needs a coat of paint which planted a seed in my head. I know my rusty lovin' friends are wondering what on earth I'm thinking, but I could really see this guy a bright glossy red. Still haven't decided yet.
Asking for $5.
Bought for $3.
Next up is this great rusty green box. They said it was used for Pearl Harbor. Not sure if it's true, but I'll go with it =) It also came with a lovely white spider, which thankfully scurried away right before I picked it up. I almost screamed, sending everyone in a frenzy, but I was able to keep my composure and managed to scream inside.
Asking for $10.
Bought for $8.
Says 'AMMO BOX' on the front.
The next thing I got just looked cool. Wasn't quite sure what it was, but I did some research online and found out The Bastian Blessing Co. distributed soda fountain machines, so I'm guessing that's what this is from.
Asking for $5.
Bought for $5 (since I already talked the guy down on the mail holder).
And last, but not least, I bought a glass dome...
from an ugly clock like this (sorry if that offends anyone, but I just don't like 'em).
Anybody see where I'm going with this? That's right...a cloche!!
He was asking for $5 for the clock and all, but he let my buy the glass for just $3. That's cheaper than any cloche you will find in a store and this is a big sucker!
I hope you enjoyed looking at my treasures as much as I enjoyed buying them!
