Another Man'sTreasures

Outside a Collectibles shop

You never know what you'll find! I don't need any of the items here but it's still fun to look.

In celebration of the old and wonderful "stuff", I  am connecting to Rubbish Tuesday HERE.

Interesting find Camera Girl. It's been a long time since I have seen a trunk.

Revrunner said...

Reminds me some of my old footlocker from college. Only it's in far better shape than my footlocker ever was. Now that was rubbish! :-)

Anvilcloud said...

Interesting stuff. My niece would probably turn the trunk into artwork and sell it.

i guess the blue item - is a heater? i admit you found some interesting finds. i wonder if you took anything home?

happy week. ( :

Kate said...

I think the little blue stove is the most interesting item in your photo.

There's sometimes a difference between what we need and what we want ! :)

Roan said...

Love teh kerosene heater! Haven't seen one of those in years. Thanks for linking up!

Tom said...

I have a small heater like the one pictured. It was used in a ice-fishing shanty in the Adirondack Mountains years ago. Tom The Backroads Traveller

I rather like that blue stove.

Jackie McGuinness said...

Thank goodness people identified the blue item! I was wondering...

Always tempting looking at this stuff.

MadSnapper said...

i want the stove and the kettle..

Pamela Gordon said...

I don't 'need' any of them either but there's a couple of things I'd like. :)

Cranberry Morning said...

Okay, I see that Sandra already has dibs on the stove. lol Great photo!

Randy said...

Love that blue stove!

Judy said...

I could spend hours in a place like that!!! This photo reminds me that I should get back to work photographing all the stuff I brought from my childhood home last year...

TexWisGirl said...

perusing is fun. :)

John @ Beans and I on the Loose said...

Nope, nothing I could use there. But it is surprising the things I see people buy at my flea market. Makes me wonder what their homes must look like.

Treasure or thrash, a thin line difference.

I like the stove and the trunk, but I would just look. I've got so much junk around here already..I'd probably do best to stay away from sales.

Karen said...

I would have been tempted to buy that antique heater!

Small City Scenes said...

I too would have been tempted to get the heater. Fun stuff. I just--a few months ago--opened a corner in an antique/collectible shop. Fun to try to get rid of some stuff I have had for ages. The store I am in is called Ella Bella Vintage finds and is in Conway. It is a fun endeavor. MB

Gail Dixon said...

How perfect for the meme! Love the trunk, but the blue heater (?) is a treasure.

RedPat said...

You just never know what treasure you may find!

Felicia said...

I love to go in shops like this.

great image.

Tanya Breese said...

i think i need all of that stuff haha

Halcyon said...

Ah yes, it never hurts to look! :)

Amy Burzese said...

Hey, that's a great collection. My kind of place!

Lowell said...

It's great fun to wander through these kinds of places, although it isn't often I buy anything. Don't see anything in this particular collection that I'd want, either. But I'd certainly go look!

Stephanie said...

I like the look of these junk items, especially the trunk.

cieldequimper said...

Call it what you want to but that is the perfect witch's cauldron... Hmmmmm, I wonder what I'll put into it... :-)

Lisa Gordon said...

I enjoy doing this too, and you never know what you might find. I found many of my vintage cameras this way.

Janie said...

I'm a sucker for old trunks. I think I'd go for that one.

Michelle said...

I do like the look of that little, blue stove.

marilyn said...

several history lessons found in this one...it's just great !

Anonymous said...

What neat, interesting-looking stuff!

The Cranky said...

What a great old kerosene heater; I haven't seen one of that type in ages... and it's in such great condition!

Mersad said...

Really great tresures hidden there. I like that brown chest/coffin. Looks very nice.

Such places are dangerous for me.

I'm not usually a "thrifty" kind of person, but I just found an amazing mirror I want to use when I photograph my nephew's wedding. Love this shot.

Pat Tillett said...

I would be right there with you. You just never know when you'll see something you really want.

kayerj said...

what a fun shot. We don't have any antique stores in our little community. I've often wished we did.
