One is not enough

Sharing my finds from my recent trip to Yakima to visit my sister...I don't know about you but I'm a firm believer that there is strength in numbers...and when fortitude is rewarded with multitude, the junking gods are on your side...

We went to several estate sales that had boxes upon boxes of stuff...you never know what you might find...the enormous light bulb was found first...it is will complete the perfect trio, complementing the two other large bulbs I already have at home.  And then when I came across the small and medium bulbs (and the english ironstone platter for 75 cents!) how could I leave them behind...they will be part of my letters & numbers/scientific study vignette at Faded Elegance come fall.




Likewise here with the Brownie Kodak cameras...in the past, I would have passed by such an item as this...but with my increasing interest in photography, it caught my eye...it was only $1 so into the pile...





Next sale...this camera...this time its $4.00 - a high ticket item!  But it calls out my name...




Last sale...could not believe it...a third Brownie camera - and with the attached flash...its really out of the budget ($7.50!) but its at one of my favorite charity thrift stores in Yakima, the Union Gospel Mission Lighthouse Thrift Store, so I justify that its all for a good cause...

 and really...when the junk gods are on your side, who are you to argue...
Have the junk gods been on your side lately...tell me about it!
Linking up to Mosaic Monday at Little Red House...I'm sure there's junking stories there to be told!

  1. I love it all! Of course you had to get them! I have some cool old light bulbs but have yet to do anything with them...not a big surprise. And, cameras? You can't have too many!
