Kitchen-Sunny Style!

Has anyone else received their latest issue of Country Style Magazine?
Mine came this past week in the mail.  It's always a treat, something I like to save until I have some time, and really savor and enjoy.

Aside from removing keys and sunglasses from the table, this is how our eat in area of the kitchen looked (and still does + said keys, etc) when my kiddo brought the mail, including Country Living Magazine, in from the mail box.

And I noticed some similar colors on the cover shot ...

Hey Country Living…
                                       I like your style!

Have a great sunny day!

Available Items! Vintage desk, vintage chair, vintage typewriter & more

Hello all!
You may have seen this desk before, but sometimes it helps to see it 'in action'.  It also has a new price. : ).  Keep scrolling … it could make a fabulous vanity.  Yes, it would also be a great vintage piece for a  flat screen tv, but I wasn't up to lifting and moving my tv … you'll have to imagine that one!
But a desk is not all that you will find in this post.  So scroll away!

To purchase an item, please call or text 2zero8-39zero-8653.
I am located in Chubbuck, Idaho and offer my items locally.

Vintage Youngstown Sink!

Isn't she adorable?!

You can imagine the comments when I hauled home a kitchen sink… : )
But a vintage Youngstown sink and original metal stand had to be rescued.

Of course, it would be amazing refinished and set into a kitchen!
But imagine it out on a patio, planted with flowers...

Or used as a vintage inspired drink container at a wedding or party,
(How about renting it out for such a purpose?! - I'd be tempted to rent it back for parties!)

How about in the laundry room, either plumbed and used for soaking and rinsing, or using each sink for a 'hamper'.  Have a butcher block cut to size one sink and you'd have a spot to iron and fold!

This Younstown Vintage Sink is now sold! 

Measures:  42inches wide, 24 inches deep, 40 inches tall at the back.
I found 2 posts of similar items on ebay at approximately 5 times this price. But I'm a gal in Idaho, who realizes the audience for such a piece is small, and I'd love to see it make it to a new home!!

Interested?  Call or text me at 20eight-39zero-8653 , we can arrange a time for a closer look!

STUFF ~ available!

I'm really not sure how to title this post.  So, STUFF, it is.  
Granted, it's great STUFF,  but to the untrained, non-junk lover … it may appear to be junk.
I know, that you...know better.  I also realized that before the last flea market, I would feel that I needed more 'stuff' to write a blog post about and sell.  Granted at the flea market, I have multiple pieces of furniture, but many of you visit in hopes to find a unique item, a vintage find, or a re-graced piece!  Right?  So I'm planning more frequent posts.  Some with furniture pieces, and some without.  I'd love to hear your thoughts on this!

I'm located in Chubbuck, Idaho and sell items on a local basis.  First to call/text is first served.  Sales tax is included in these prices.  For items less than $20, cash sales, please. Paypal and credit card are available for others.  208-39zero-8six53

 18 pane window- sold
Window found with this blue paint, just the wood frame, no glass. Use it in a teenager or boy's room, with sports awards, or ribbons. Or paint it white and clip on black and white photos, or a statement architectural piece!

Vintage 3 tiered metal tray $8
Great industrial piece!  Wouldn't it be fabulous on a vintage desk … I have one here : )!
It could even be hip in the pantry.  Those high shelves could corral granola bars and protein bars!

Blue metal basket $6
It's not a vintage piece, but great patina. And yeah, don't miss the hardware and detail on that window!

Vintage Bottle $4

Vintage Mop Handle  $16
Wood, vintage label, and rust - oh my stars!!!
Put it in the laundry room, propped, or hung horizontal.  It could be a great piece high on a kitchen wall  draped with a sweet vintage apron or two - oh the possibilities!

Thanks for visiting my junkin' friends!
