Are you in your comfy chairs, folks? I hope so, because it’s time for We Call It Junkin’s monthly game – Armchair Junkin! In case this is new to you, this is where you:
- just sit back in your comfy armchair
- come on a virtual antique- or thrift-shopping trip with me
- then play “what-would-I-buy” with everybody else.
There’s even a poll at the end where you can vote, no email address or personal info needed. Vote for as many as you like.
By the way – this is fantasy shopping, so storage space and funds are not an issue, you just vote on what you would like to have bought if there were no limits. How much fun would that be?!
Last Month’s Roundup and Winner
Here’s a refresher on what we had to vote on from last month’s trip to an estate sale and antique mall:
…and the winner was… the secretary (top, right corner photo above) with 23% of the votes! Y’all have great taste, and I loved that piece, too.
And now…Episode 6 – Friday Afternoon Thrift Store Run!
1. Hextowriter typewriter. Silent auction item, next bid would have been $25.00.
2. Hand painted chest of drawers. $250.00, and that drawer that’s sticking out was pretty badly jammed 🙁
3. Gate leg table, $175.00.
4. Fisher Price Merry Go Round, $10. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve already seen this, couldn’t wait to share.
5. Interesting coffee table, $25. What do you think? Vintage? Repro? Made from a sewing machine altered in some way?
6. China cabinet, modern I think. $275.00.
7. Rusty gold! Antique cast iron stove, $150.00.
8. I was amazed to find two vintage refrigerators the same day at two different thrifts. This GE was hard to photograph because there was a massive TV in front of it. $150.
9. This Amana, for $100, has a PINK and white interior! Oh my goodness! I begged Hubby to buy it for storage shelving in his new shop, because that really is the only place we could possibly fit it. He said, “Uh…no.” I don’t think he was groovin’ on the pink.
Do Your Thing – Voting Ends April 30, 2014 around midnight
Remember now, money is no object, you have unlimited storage space, so what would you like if you’d been shopping with me? You can vote for as many as you like. Most popular item will be announced in Episode 7 early next month. Thanks for playing, y’all! ~Dawn
