Junkin' Monday

I left in the cloak of darkness.....to the annual Nebraska Junk Jaunt. My first time to go digging through garage sale after garage sale in this junking extravaganza.

There was a cozy fog to drive through that lifted right when I got to my first sale a little before 8am.

Five--count them--five typewriters came home with me!! I left a few behind too that were way overpriced. Funny how prices fluctuated from sale to sale.

I guess that's a wasp's nest in there. I will use this one for salvaged parts. I could never take the keys off of a good typewriter and even this one will make me sad to dismantle, but it's really falling apart and is rough. The keys will clean up beautifully. I'm sure there will be uses for the other parts too. Let me know if you know of any good projects for the rest of the typewriter!

Needs a GOOD cleaning but gotta love the color!

I had the pickup full and I will spend the next month sorting, cleaning, etc and will share some pictures along the way. I got back at 10pm and really enjoyed the day of scavenging! Now, you can join Clara and Marcela for Junkin' Monday at Cottage Charm and Family Inspiration to see other great vintage finds and sweet junk!
