South Texas Trip - Junkin' all the way!!!

Well, this past weekend we headed to Houston area...my brother and sister-in-law sweetly offered to keep and treat our girl to a fun weekend and Mark and I hit the road for a fun time together. Mark stopped at every antique and junk shop along the way! Yeah!!!! After stopping in Colombus, Weimar, and Shulenburg I finally found this cute shabby shelf. I was beginning to give up...I thought if I see another piece of glassware I might scream! I thought this shelf looked like a christmas tree, so it might show up at the christmas sale...

Then, we stopped at this place, can you beileve it? Have you seen that show American Pickers? It is on History channel on Monday nights...it's about 2 guys that travel around buying antiques to resell....Mark teases me about being a "picker" which of course I am! So anyway, we stopped and dug through this mess....
I'm not sure about the antique or treasure part, but we where having fun together.....

So, would you have stopped?? I want to know...
Well, here are the 2 things that I dug out of that place....Both need a little TLC... I thought they both had potential!!!
Stay tuned for more from our trip.... (the finds get better!)

Okay friends, Lockers have just been flying out the barn for many of the last sales and we finally ended up being able to get them in quantity! These are all for sale NOW and are really fun. Lockers are a great summer project, easily painted with Rust-oleum paint products which are made for metal objects! I have 2 sets of triples, seen above. The yellow and blue set have 3 across and 3 lockers on the bottom and are in great shape.
At then end of the row there are 2 sets of doubles, 2 on the top and 2 on the bottom. I have lots of additional doubles in another barn also....

Here is another type in doubles, these are 2 sets of doubles. It is one tan & blue is a set, then the next set is a little darker in color. These are in prime shape for painting...although there funky color is pretty fun also!

These are 2 more sets of 2 singles together. The orange and tan are one set and the blue and tan are the second set. You might notice that these are long single doors, different from all the others. These are priced to sell, so email me if you are interested! I'll be happy to meet you at the barn so you can see them also. Of course, first come, first choice!!!
Hope your "summer projecting" is off to a great start!
See you around!
