November Estate Sale Vintage Finds

How delightful to have an estate sale nearby in the middle of November.  The pole barn was half filled with rusty wonders. A few of the items I picked up:

A tray of rusty stuff (this is actually just a small portion of the stuff!)

Drawer I made for the "keeper" pieces.

Mercury glass light shades (six!) -- for ebay.

Jadeite skillet bowl.

Pair of killer utility carts with rollers,
originally used by Lee Jean manufacturing.
I dry brushed a little red on them.
They would make great bookends for a couch.

Gallon green depression jar with
original timeworn lid.
Perfect for the holidays.
Linking Up with :
Beyond The Picket Fence
