I have a load of interesting finds today. Would you believe that I found all of this over my lunch break on Friday? I was power picking. Needless to say I didn’t have lunch.
Let’s start with the small items. Cameras are hot right now so I was happy to find this brownie with a hawkeye flash.
I always wanted to find a collection of vintage wooden block letters.
Now I have them. What should I do with them?
A few in the stash are really old. They’re a little bit bigger than the rest. I love how worn and faded they are.
A galvanized minnow bucket…
Someone hand painted this old window. It reads Granny’s Tailor Shop.
I like the graphic of the sewing machine on the sign. Sew cut. (Couldn’t resist that one, sorry.)
This was a last minute addition to my pile. Something about this Victorian porch railing lured me in. I can picture this cleaned up and used as a headboard in a girl’s room.
Or maybe not. I may take it apart and use the spindles individually in a project. Any ideas for the spindles?
You are probably curious about the aqua goodness that has been in the background of many of the photos. I was told that they were once part of a built in around a fireplace in an old house. There are 3 doors. I love the color and how they are perfectly chipping. The options for these guys are endless!
This is my second week in a row finding oars. This time they are about 6 feet and have signs of red paint.
And finally I got a wirey dress form. I like how pliable this is.
Oh wait, that’s not it! I almost forgot that I got a vintage pulldown school map of South America circa 1950s. The colors are great. I need to hang it and snap a picture for you. Can you believe I managed to get all of this in my car?

Wow!! I’m blown away! These are all great finds! Good for you!
That porch railing was a good choice! Very cool!
Wow, amazing finds. That porch railing could be used as a magazine holder. Right now, taking a front part of a ladder and leaning it against the wall, then hanging magazines on it is very popular. I think you could do that with this beauty. It would look amazing.
I spell out Merry Christmas with my blocks – they look nestled in with some cute vintage ornaments!

You really were doing some power picking! I love a successful thrifting lunch hour. You certainly found some great stuff. I really like the blocks, the dress form and the aqua doors. Great finds!
I love the old blocks and the window with the sewing machine painted on it. You had so many great finds! I can’t believe you did it all on your lunch hour. I love your blog, I can’t wait to read more of your posts!
