Zinc, Iron & Rust - Junk Bonanza Preview #1

We're bringing chippy blue china, shabby treasures, grain sacks, ephemera, findings and old treasures of every sort to Junk Bonanza. Today - a peek at the industrial/primitive side:

Tuesday afternoon I started digging out all that heavy metal stuff that I've been buying all year, "for Junk Bonanza".  There's zinc, iron and rust.  It's been hidden away in various places with the hopes that CG, (also known as "Mr Clean"), wouldn't notice that I brought one more thing in...

I dragged it all out in the yard and cleaned it up. "Cleaned" in my world means that I turned the jet hose on it and sent any spiders or other scary-looking creatures away. There still might be grease, rust or other crud on it, but if you were the prissy sort you wouldn't be coming to Junk Bonanza, now would you?

There's farm stuff, garden stuff, factory stuff and stuff that we have no idea what it is.

Two weeks from today we leave for Junk Bonanza.  
That brings just one word to mind. 
Now where did I hide that big stack of funnels?


  1. Great Finds!!! Jeanine, ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!

  2. Your stuff looks great. I love to pick through things like that -- you'll do well at the show I'm sure.

  4. Love that urn! Nice to know someone else picks up stuff just because it looks cool but has no idea what it was used for! LOL


  5. Everything looks great and funky. I soooo wish I could come to JB,maybe next year. I still am determined to make it to Kane or Elkhorn yet this year. I know time is getting short.
