Junk Bonanza - Part 2 ............

Hey there girls..

I'm back to share with you part 2 of my Junk Bonanza finds.  If you missed part 1, you can check out my previous post to see the other things I scored at this wonderful event.

First up is a pair of vintage shoe stretchers.. These were only $1.00 for each if you can believe it.  I love a great bargain don't you?


A bag of vintage spools in assorted sizes...


A perfectly distressed sewing box drawer in a wonderful shade of  greyish blue..



A small bundle of vintage papers to use in my craft projects.  If I can manage to tear into them that is.  The stacked bundle of papers is so pretty just as it is that I might find it a bit hard to untie that string and actually use them.  Maybe I'll keep them just as is and display them alongside some of my other finds...


And last but not least, the best find for me at Junk Bonanza this year was something I had been wanting to find for a very long time.  Something I've seen all over blogland and had me envying those of you who already have one or two or maybe even more of your own.

Now, I myself have my very own vintage doll head... 


Isn't it sweet??

Oh, I'm sure some of you might think these vintage doll heads are just a tad bit creepy, but not me and I am so happy that I finally found one of my very own and at a very reasonable price too.  It has a few small cracks and such, but nothing I can't easily and happily live with.  Those little faults just add to its vintage charm.  

Well, that's it for this years Junk Bonanza finds.  It was awesome once again and surprisingly, I didn't even spend all of the money I had been saving up for this fun event so I have no shoppers guilt whatsoever

A perfect way to end the summer I must say. 

Well, thanks for stopping by for a visit today.  See you again soon.
