As you plunder through items at rummage sales, estate sales and thrift stores, do you ever notice that you find the same type of item several weeks in a row? It’s like your “finds” occur in cycles. No more hymnal racks this week (hopefully THAT cycle is over), but it seems that I’ve started another cycle. In Monday’s post, I told you about finding three vintage cameras. Well, it looks like cameras are now in my rummaging radar and I’m finding them wherever I look.
During this week’s visit to my favorite thrift store, I discovered a Polaroid Model 420 camera. I’m not usually drawn to Polaroid cameras, but this one was an awesome fold-out type. It was reasonably priced, so it went home with me!
The camera “cycle” didn’t stop there. Two estate sales this weekend netted two more cameras, though not as old as the ones last week.
Besides the cameras, all I found was JUNK!!!
An old wooden step ladder with several small cans of paint and stain (for projects)!
Some old burlap potato sacks with awesome graphics!
I also found a wood-handled round brush (which I later found out is a parts cleaning brush), a folding ruler, an old grater, a Rain King sprinkler, a cast iron receipt hook and even some handy paint stirring sticks.
Hopefully I’ve started a “junk” cycle now!
Do you ever rummage in “cycles?”
