Remember the road trip find that wouldn't fit in my van?
My friend Kathy went along to help pick up the cubby and hunt for treasures. We channeled Mike and Frank as we picked through four barns, two sheds and a trailer. As it turned out there wasn't a lot for us. I've never seen more horse tack. Sadly, the owner wanted retail prices so there were no stellar bargains to be had. If we picked up something that looked remotely interesting, she wouldn't sell it..."that's old - I'll have to check on the price before I can sell it..."
On the happy side, I did come home with more letters to love and I've been loading them into my etsy shop.
They have that great mid-century industrial vibe.
Some are faded...
...a few are rusty & chippy
...some are "hot" 60's colors.
(In my 7th grade photo I'm wearing a sweater this color - yikes!)
and there's everthing from...
I'll be adding more of these to etsy as the week goes on,
in between getting ready for Grayslake this weekend
and catching up on little things that need attention here in the cottage!
(I'll post a sneak peek of Grayslake goodies later in the week!)
