Saturday morning was one of those beautiful February days we sometimes get in Georgia. Cool but with the sun shining and a promise of a warming day. We head out early after a stop for coffee, I love those machines in the QT that give you the Vanilla Cappuccino! Moving onward to Chattanooga, TN. We are headed to the other side of the mountain and a small town where we are to pick up a tube tester that my DH has bought. The man has told us it is his Grandfathers and that he once had a TV shop and they are now selling off all these old electronics. DH is a old radio guy (or a guy who likes old radios) and loves all these old electronics so it's a exciting trip for him. Me, well it's a beautiful day and there is a promise of stopping at a few Thrifts on the way home.We arrive and while waiting for the man to meet us we start looking around. It's an old building, with a huge amount of 'stuff' everywhere. I see this old tractor with a snowplow blade and I think that would make a good photo...
While the men are looking over all the electronic stuff I continue to wander around and take photos of all this great rusty stuff
Then I spy this box and well the lid is off and so I peek inside
Lots of just junk but also I see a few treasures
I inquire if they are for sale and he says make me an offer
I did and picked out five items for $5!
This item below is the one we drove up here for...
He is pleased with his purchase of this tube tester and is making a pile of other stuff to buy, he is a happy 'picker' right now
This was just a small portion of the stuff he was sorting through
Very cool canning jar lids
WHOA....WHAT IS THIS????
Just laying there in the dirt
This is one very cool, very rusty & dirty lantern
I am in love with all it's rusty coolness! Can it be bought? Yes!!
So I bring home six items including my lantern for $6
Cute little 'dutch' boy planter
Such fun finds.... DH finds several items and he is happy as we load up the car....
This is really 'guy stuff' and I have no idea what it all is but there were lots of little smiles of happiness on his face so I guess it was some really good finds.......we enjoyed our pickin in Tennessee!
Ya'll come back now!
