A Sneaky Peaky at My Fav Junkin' Spot

This past weekend the kiddos and I went for a jaunt to Birmingham and Harpersville to see family and friends. Every time I head to Harpersville the kids and I get siked up for a trip to this spot here: It's a little gem. Yep. Can't you tell?? We spent 2 hours in here yesterday morning. And I left with a pot of gold. I've got some new ideas for my booth at the Flea, and with my whole vision as an artist really. And this spot was just the inspiration I needed to get me started. Since my trusty camera was in the car, I decided to take a few shots to make you drool over the junk heaven right on HWY 280.
There is a front building that is more like an old hardware store. I think you can buy just about ANYTHING in this place. As long as you don't read expiration labels and such. The back room is an airplane hanger size. No heat.....no heat......but that really did not stop us.

Everything is organized beyond belief. If you want a bird figurine, it's with the bird figurines. Christmas with Christmas, clothes with clothes, hot curlers with hot curlers, all the way through rabbit ears for you TV set (or wings on dragon fly sculptures). It's unbelievable.

Small appliance aisle. I find things I really had no idea I needed here. The Tupperware isle is a favorite for finding that sort of thing.

This is the figurine isle. They have a tons of clothes, which I usually never peek through. I did however see some vintagey ice skating costumes and lovely prom gowns. There's also a giant box of zippers in the sewing notions area. If someone knows of an idea with those, send it my way. Every time I go here I see them and ponder, then pass on them. But I know there's got to be a magical idea with a box of zippers. I forgot to snap some pics of the gems I found. So I'll do that later today. Valerie and I are headed to the Altanta Gift Show at the mart this morning, so I have to run now. Have a cozy day!!

I love this place! The very back wall is my favorite. Loads of fun old, rusty, garage-type stuff. Oh, and the restuarant dishes!

I've as a last resort liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to well-wishing of just dish out time staring at it as a formality of catharsis. In a way, it helps me with meditation, to reduce stress and strain and just deem in the air nothing. That's why since I was a kid, a substitute alternatively of dolls and cars I've in any case sedate more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, dulcet boxes etc. So I was most delighted when I start the[url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-1260-2-Laser++LED+Light+Show+Laser+Top+Gyroscope+with+Music+Effects.html] 2-Laser + LED Inconsiderable Show Laser Outstrip Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from DealtoWorld.com protection the Toys section. It's like a melodic box, a spinning top, and a light verify all rolled into one. Which is capacious diversion! The gyroscope will spin object of around a minute. The laser slight show with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a very incomparable bauble that my friends get also been most amused with.

My dogs are also beautiful intrusive nearly the laser gyroscope I got from DealtoWorld.com. They always cleave to the gyroscope as it spins, although at principal they kept barking at the laser light advertise, and also because it produces music. But after they got tempered to it, they've stopped barking but due maintain following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also unbelievably amused next to it. On occasion it's good to maintain entertaining toys throughout the blood so that you can desert the toy on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you open to prepare food or receive changed. The gyroscope is one such play with with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from DealtoWorld.com has a dragon as a map on it, and produces a taper show with red, blue, and unripened colours. Take a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser joyful show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that enormous but good adequacy to accommodate any new roomer to the house. The gyroscope is red and jet-black, making it look extraordinarily cold, and somewhat arrogant with that dragon imprint.

The music light inform gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also euphemistic pre-owned this gyroscope to stagger my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy terror of decorating the hotel elbow-room with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as correctly so that the laser light expose produces a romantic effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the light effects created a degree mawkish atmosphere. She loved it, by the custom, to my relief. I also bought the candles from DealtoWorld.com. These days it seems to be my non-fulfilment shopping placement in return all gifts and ideas for fancied occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser light show gyroscope can possibly be a talented Christmas gift looking for the toddler or neutral the humour! Alternatively, the gyroscope can really be a nice summation to the usual Christmas decorations. I can presume placing it near the Christmas tree and peradventure spinning it when guests arrive in the house. Looks like [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] is getting my business anyway again!
