Storage Unit Sale

Hubby and I went out of town a few days ago to visit relatives. Of course, I checked before we left and found an interesting vintage sale close to our destination. When we arrived at the sale address, we were surprised to find that the location was a storage facility. The sellers explained that the contents of an old Victorian house had to be moved to the storage unit and the sale was being conducted there because the house had been sold.

I quickly amassed a small stack of unique items. Here’s what I found….

A large oval cream/green enamelware pan and two large bed springs…..

An old blue batter bowl and a gingham check apron….

A colorful vintage tablecloth and a cute little wooden crate…..

A great stack of old sewing machine drawers…..

And, finally, a large yellow/brown spatter footed enamelware bowl…

I did my “happy dance” as we left the sale!

I’m linking to the following parties:

Vintage Inspiration Link Party at My Salvaged Treasures
What’s It Wednesday at Ivy and Elephants
Thrifty Things Friday at Melissa’s Antiques
