Salvaged Treasures

It was another rainy Saturday here in sunny California.... which meant zero yard sales. I did however attend an outdoor antique show & sale in the next town over. I like to see what antiques are being sold for now-a-days-- especially the jewelry. Yikes, things are pricey! I came across tables and tables of shiny bling only to be devastated to hear that they ranged in price from $20 and up. What? geeze..... That being said. I did manage to get this huge lot of jewelry for $10.... I know right?... I'm lucky like that. These two watches are my favorites out of all of it.... love 'em! I then came across a huge wooden box of keys... the asking price was $15, I paid $8 for the lot. While looking at them, my husband asked me, "What do you need all those keys for?".... "Ooooooooh shut up," I said...... he carried my bags of keys to the car. Of course I had to weigh them when I got home.... they came in at six pounds. Six pounds of keys! While placing them on this tray, I found a vintage Ford key. This one I am going to make into something special to hang from my '66 Mustang's mirror. I love-love-love that car! Not to shabby for a rainy, overcast weekend. I've linked up to "Thrift Share Monday" Also, "Her Library Adventures"

"What do you want all those keys for". Snort. Just like a man, huh? ;-) What a lucky girl you are!! All the keys and all the jewelry for $18?! Woohoo! And you have a '66 Mustang? Yep. A really lucky girl. That was one of the first cars I ever noticed. My cute, older neighbor drove one. It was butter yellow. I have such fond memories of seeing it ride past my house.
