Roundup of January Finds

I don't think I've been out to more than half a dozen yard sales all month, but I guess that's not too bad considering January has been one of the coldest we've had in years.  When it finally warmed up last week I gathered all my January junkin' finds for a quick photo shoot.  I even managed to give some of this stuff an outdoor bath later in the day:-)

Another shopper was eyeing the scale and walked away.  Huh, I guess it was too rusty for him.  I couldn't pass up 2 1/2 yards of bark cloth even though it is reproduction.

Baby Ben is missing one hand and the glass, but I still love it.  

Stieff pewter creamer and sugar set, Pond's milk glass jar, and the 3-tier shelf they're sitting on.

Zero fan, chippy old light cage fruit picker (thanks Angie), and a galvanized poultry fount from a barn sale.  

Rusty cast iron finial and a very cool "what's it."

I could see these glistening on the table all the way from the street.  Seriously...I was hoping they were exactly what I thought they were!!

  1. My gosh, you scored some great finds. Of course, I adore that clock, but I also love the fan, the scale, the chicken feeder, the doorknobs, and the light cage (which I think might actually be a fruit picker without the attached pole). Great scores!

  6. Those doorknobs!! Even though your pickins' were limited, you got some great stuff. Wonder what the heck the "what's it" is---whatever it is, it's cool, and you are going to think of the perfect thing to do with it!

  7. I'd say you had a good month even if there were few sales. My fav is the door knobs. They are lovely. But I must say I like it all.

    Good luck in February!!!

  10. Great finds and don't you just love a good "whats-it"! I don't know what that one is but I know I like its steampunk look, that's for sure.

  12. WOW! Those doorknobs are gorgeous! You don't see those much any more! And I love the chippy, rusty things, too. We watched a little of American Pickers while we ate our lunch today...they always say 'rusty gold'! heehee!

  16. Oh, wow. I am missing out. I don't even try to hit garage sales during the winter. Love the glass door knobs! You really scored and black and purple to boot! Awesome!

  17. I think the stuff finds you. The best stuff. You are a treasure magnet. Who'd think that kind of goodness was all in one area. And I'm thrilled about you finding the doorknobs. They are just so pretty!

  19. What an amazing haul! I think my fave is the Pond's jar. I just LOVE the thrill of the hunt...my two best finds to date are a 1950's yellow diner-style table/chairs set ($20!!!) and a 15-drawer card catalog, solid maple, complete with stand ($35). I LOVE JUNK!

  20. WOW. WOW. WOW.
    What incredible treasures you found!
    A little yard sale envy going on right now - the only thing you'll find in Montreal yards right now are shovels!

  22. You found some wonderful things. I guess I need to start visiting garage sales.

  23. The "what is it" reminds me a a door closer of some sort. Have no clue. Please let us know if you figure it out.

    You did land some terrific finds.

  24. Those are awesome finds! I'm so jealous that you have yard sales to go to in January!

  25. Great finds! I have a thing about vintage fans and have several but haven't found a way to display them yet! Blessings, Tammy

  26. Oh so many lovelies!!!!!!The knobs are absolutely beautiful!!!! Curious to know what you are going to do with the feeder? I would have bought it also, just because it is galvanized!

    ReplyDelete
  27. The hardware... You are so lucky!!! Please come by and share this on my link up - these finds are seriously cool!

  28. I found you over at Coastal Charm and I'm so glad I did! I like things that are rusty or only mostly there or whatever. They don't need to be perfect for me to love! You made me smile when you called the chicken water-er a poultry fount! So elegant!! I had to water about 100 chickens every day of my young life and those things get cold as ice in the winter!! Thank you for sharing!

  30. I really miss living in a part of the country where yard sales are even possible in January. At least I know all that 'good stuff' is going to a good home. :-) Those glass doorknobs are beautiful!

    (I have no clue what that 'what's it' is...)

  31. Yard sales are possible here in January, but that doesn't mean there have been ANY! :( So glad you found some interesting things, and I'm really loving that amethyst door knob!

  32. Betsy..It is snowing here and I just want to curl up in front of the fire...My mind goes elsewhere....Dreaming of finds like you found....I can always find bliss in what others find....Blessings, Becky

  33. I adore it all! I have a black Zero fan; very cool. Love the rusty scale too - I am starting to decorate my kitchen with vintage, so I am hoping to pick up another scale for in there. The pewter pieces are wonderful - love the tall legs! And that purple doorknob is to die for... I would love to add one to my small collection! Awesome.

  34. Yay! So many goodies for you Betsy. I can't wait on how you will surprise us again.

  35. I am a fan of glass doorknobs. I have never seen a purple one like that, looks like yummy candy!
