Heavy Metal - My Way and Show Particulars

This is how I like my heavy metal.  The rusty, crusty, chippy vintage variety.  Good grief you weren't thinking music when you read the title, were you?  Oh my, never. I was a serious alternative/techno girl back in the day (the kind who cringes when she hears orchestral elevator versions of Depeche Mode songs in mass shopping establishments!)  Back when alternative music WAS alternative but perhaps I digress...
Witness my haul from flea market last weekend.  I'm amused when some shopping excursions end up having a theme.  Wire baskets galore and a vintage metal wire store display.  Throw in a pair of red painted metal child size chairs and I'm a happy gal.

Loved the woodblocks.  I still have a bunch of letter blocks so these will be fun to place in the bowl at shows.  I was hoping to keep them but husband was not as thrilled as me!
So here you have it.  Our shopping carts were VERY heavy by the end of the morning!  I kept thinking I should stop since I may have confessed mentioned the lack of garage space and impending cold weather but I soldiered on while remember my upcoming shows.
I'll be bringing my junque to:
Springfield Extravaganza
September 16,17,18
Springfield, OH
Booth #532 (same spot as the May show)
AND
The Rural Society Antique Show (SO EXCITED TO BE ASKED TO JOIN THIS EVENT)
October 14,15
Mt. Vernon, OH
And I've even got the neighborhood yard sale coming this Saturday which will be the perfect opportunity to really get in there and sort stuff out.  Any local folks who'd like to attend the yard sale just drop me an e-mail and I'll get you the particulars.
Junque on folks!

You can never have too many wire baskets! Just came back from the lake in OH (where my parents live). One of these years I will make it to the Springfield show...and Mt. Vernon is less than an hour from them. Have to check it out!

Hey wait talking about great finds you sure did find some wonderful pieces. I always look for smalls O don't ever do any shows I sell on E-bay and Etsy. And I hate having to package up large items. So we would be fine going out has a team no fighting who gets what! LOL Hugs, Diane

You found some great stuff! One cannot have too many metal baskets. I have 20 old locker baskets and they are one of my favorite things.
Good luck at your upcoming sales!!
