Weekend Junque

It was a good weekend for junque. A very good weekend. The kind that still has treasures in bags...
The thrift gods were smiling on me Friday evening when they provided this perfectly sized vintage hamper. La Princess has been needing one and I have been loathe to purchase something new because a) I mostly hate them and find them vile and b) I'm cheap - I mean thrifty and there's no way I'm spending a lot. I knew if I waited long enough fortune would smile upon me. And it did. For $3. Thank you wise thrift gods. Thank you.
A large indoor flea market netted these other great finds (with A LOT more waiting in the wings). I know, I know. Pink is supposed to be the IT color of the year. Whatever. I'm an aqua kind of a girl. I don't need a new color - I love the palette I've got. Love that globe - she's ALL metal baby!
How appropriate is that sweet cherub Lefton planter? Still got the sticker on the bottom. Off to Etsy she will go.
A close up of the nursery decals on top of the hamper lid. How adorable are they?
More to show you in the coming days.
Hope your weekend was full of great junque.

The hamper is adorable. I love those old 50's stickers or decals or whatever they are. I'm going out thrifting later today, so wish me luck1

Looks like you had a very successful day on your thrift shopping. I never sem to find anything. Guess I am going on the wrong day.

I love that globe! What a great find. I am ashamed to say that I sold an old metal laundry hamper at a yard sale before we moved. It would be perfect in my sewing room storing vintage sheets...

Great finds, how lucky are you for that hamper, such cute decals! And that cherub planter is just so so sweet! Thanks so much for linking up with VIF!
hugs,

I am lovin' the globe and the pitcher! You certainly found some good stuff. I can't wait for the spring yard sales to start up. I didn't make it up to Hara last week, after all. Indoor sales are so few and far between, but I'll be looking. Keep me in the loop if there's one close by. :-) Thanks. Sue
