Junking in Phoenix just keeps getting better and better!! I can remember 5 years ago being so envious of all the wonderful places that so many of you had to shop for vintage goodies. Since then, more and more great vintage shops are popping up up all over the valley! One of my favorites are the shops on Cave Creek road. They run just South of Cactus and then just North of Cactus.
One of these shops is called Rusty Saturday and behind it is a new place called The Salvage Yard that holds a monthly warehouse sale. Today was opening day and I was there as they opened. The thing that really got me excited was that the Jack and Cat curio team is one of the vendors and they had all kinds of wonderful grungy, rusty and "broken in" treasures.
I came home with two of the number tags above. I see a bracelet or two in my future!!!
You wont find beautiful displays and vignettes here. This is much more a "rustic" experience with stacks of vintage rusty goodness every where.
Aren't these fun??? The are vintage telephone coin boxes. Maybe they are what the workers used to collect all the change from the pay phones??? In any case, they were really cool, but I didn't bring one home.
Lots of bottles to alter and make fabulous!!!
I tried to get good shots with my iphone, but they didn't all turn out very well. There were lots of pieces of furniture and assorted rusty metal outside of the warehouse too, but I didn't get any shots of that. (next time)
So you want to see my goodies????
(I scored BIG TIME)
Ta Da!! Isn't that wood cabinet fabulous??? It's in beautiful shape and I only paid $49.00 for it. :) It will sit proudly in my studio with baubles and bling in it. The side table was a bargain at $15.00 and will get a chalk paint finish very soon!! I also picked up a large metal tin tile and an old rusty trash can for $5.00 each.
I was in junkers heaven!!
God Bless America!!! LOL!
