Wasn't That Fun?

One day we were passing our favorite second hand store and noticed something in the grass by the parking lot.  I just had to get photos of it.
 A truck loaded with all manner of interesting things - spray painted interesting colors
 The shop buys up estate sales, antique stores going out of business and even some yard sales - and sells at very reasonable prices.  I've bought several vintage quilts there - for 15. 00 to 20. 00
 I think someone loves to spray paint - looks like a lot of entertainment

 And doesn't everyone need a neon green manual typewriter  This is the kind of typewriter I learned to type on in High School.  These were definitely not portable.
 It had been raining and if you look closely you can see some rain dripping off the chair.
 Purple picnic basket and green Grandfather's Clock

Now wasn't that fun?

That is really fun! What a great way to draw attention to the business. I'm guessing these pieces were beyond rescuing. ;)

The spray paint made for some fun and colorful items!

Yes! That was great fun! Colorful and very interesting stuff!
(I learned to type on a typewriter like that, too. And I had one - black - that I painted parts of yellow. It was a great, heavy thing that weighed a ton.)

My goodness, I have never seen a display like that before! A great advert for their business. xx
