2nd Time Around Tuesday...


Well, it's that time of the week again where you can show your 2nd hand find from your treasure hunting...go here to see many more finds from other people...
Mine this week is from an auction Jim and I went to last year her in our small little town...we picked up quite a bit that day, but I really wanted this item...and of course it was on the last trailer and was well worth the wait in my book!!
It was chocked full of rusty nails, screws, and what-nots from their garage...it weighed about a ton and was covered in nasty oil and grime...bought for $8 and had a big smile on my face...Jim took it to the car wash for me and cleaned it up using the power hose getting all that junk off!! It's been sitting on my coffee table ever since!!! I love auctions!!!

Hi Traci, your box is awesome. Different and probably made by a guy who needed nail and screws etc. space. I like the rack of horns too.

Hugs...Janne
