Junkin' Finds

A local hardware store was having a basement sale today.  I caught the ad on Craigslist and after my son's basketball game, we popped over.  I wasn't really sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised.
Tons of old brass letters.  And I got the crates that hold them as well.  I didn't see too many vowels but I still have to flip through them.
I picked up a few vintage frames.  The little one is pewter.  It's missing its glass insert but I think it's still a great find.  I've been looking for a letter holder.  This one was only $1.
See the glass "cup"?  It's actually a glass mason jar funnel.  I never heard of such a thing before.  I was intrigued so I grabbed one.  My husband also picked up some vintage aluminum plates, which I didn't get a chance to photograph.

In other news, I've opened up a new Etsy shop: OkioBVintage.  I've already added some of these vintage finds to it.  I still have my original shop, but I've been wanting to create a new one dedicated to only vintage items.  Wish me luck!
