A couple of salvage items that I brought to the event.  Most of them went to a good home :)!

Friday's Favorite Find

I was super excited about junkin' on Friday.  No kids and many places to stop :)!  My first garage sale had advertised estate jewelry and antiques.  However, when I arrived it was more like a grocery/hardware store.  I know many of you have been to a garage sale like that and you just wonder if anyone actually buys anything from them.

I did score several items on Friday such as a vintage chalkboard, vintage oil cans, vintage cameras and a vintage dress form.  I already have 2 but why not another one!  She was dirty and her blue material had to come off.

 Her shoulder needs to be fixed and I might just do some decoupaging with fun material.  She is going to look great!

She is already working it by showcasing a necklace of mine!

Book Shelves

Book shelves

I thought this was a clever way to create "book" shelves.  "L" shaped brackets were used to hold up the books.  Great conversation piece for your room!

Ways to Display Your Collections

Many of us have collections that you would love to display in your home and just have not come up with a way to do it.  I wanted to share some fun displays of collections with you.

A printer's tray or a shadow box is a wonderful way to display your finds!

80/35 Music Festival

80/35 Music Festival was great!  Blessed with sunny skies, cool breezes, and overall perfect festival weather, the day was great, filled with dazzling headliners, exciting side stage acts, and creative local artists.  Vintage No. 35's booth was rocking with some fantastic customers.
I recruited Mr. H. today to help me keep the tent from blowing away.  Thanks Mr. H.!

There were some fantastic sights and sounds!

If you want to have a little fun on Sunday the music festival will be rocking on with many new bands to listen to.   http://80-35.com/
