Until next time, my friends!!
Ragtag Revival 2015
Happy day, Friends! I hope you all had a great week. It flew by for me! I'm back this week with a post about a little country vintage sale we went to yesterday. It was small, but we had so much fun! Wonderful vendors, a pretty setting and some great deals! It's just down the road from our family farm where my brother lives, so we stopped by there on the way home for a visit.
Even thought it was Saturday, we decided to venture out early so we could have first pick of the treasures! This sale was about an hour and 15 minutes from our house, so we were up at 5:30 (not much will get me out of bed that early on a Saturday) and on our way at 6:30.
I know there is a lot going on in this picture, but if you look almost dead center, you'll see a chicken feeder. That's mine now! I am going to plant succulents in it. Look at the cute heart/wing sculptures. This vendor had a LOT of really cool stuff. I really wanted the big metal piece with the circular holes in it, but I just didn't have a place to put it. It was really cool, though! Maybe we need to build an addition to put all of my treasures in, ha!
I've also been on the hunt for an old boat oar. I found one yesterday that has some pretty amazing color to it. Blue/green and reds, it's perfect!
Some people might look at this and wonder what the appeal is for old "junk". I look at this oar and I wonder about its history. What bodies of water has it been in? Who made it? Was it a gift from one loved one to another? I just really love old things. To that point, I also purchased an old quilt yesterday. I liked the colors, but the reason I decided to get is because of the hand written sentiment. I often wonder how things like this escape a family and wind up in a vintage sale or flea market. It's kind of sad. This one will be well taken care of, though.
I'm looking forward to hitting this sale again next year. I hope it grows in to our own little Round Top, ha! That would be awesome, but actually, part of the charm to me, was the small size. We had a great time!
Until next time, my friends!!

Oh Kris, I am just so envious of you rural gals, such awesome junk finds. You never come across all the farm stuff in my neck of the woods. That chicken rooster thing, I've been wanting one for so long, that baby would have come home with me for sure!
You know, Brenda, I swore that was a roost of some sort but when I asked the guy he said he picked it up at some industrial place so I wasn't sure what the heck it was. I do know it was really cool! We do have some pretty awesome barn sales around here! Thank you for taking the time to comment!

I love these sales. I have never been to one. Hmmm, I need to find me some local tag sale pro to take me along. :D
