I'm happy that the beginning of this year I decided that my only must was to take a photo a day. I wasn't going to worry if I didn't have a blog post, I wasn't going to worry if I couldn't do the POTD on the blog a few days. It was a way to relieve some of the pressure I put upon myself, but I had no idea that so soon into the new year I would be thrown for a loop and taken away from morning til night several days in a row.
Well, I didn't fret about it, but I do feel a little bad that I didn't get the POTD picked out for today. Oh well. We'll start up again tomorrow :)
However! I mentioned the other day that my husband purchased the contents of a storage unit and I've been looking forward to giving the tour. We spent nine hours, nine very long hours cleaning out this unit.
Let me say that this rake, that was part of the treasures found in the storage unit, really represented the quality of items we found. Highly representative.
This was nearing the end of the sort. Good from bad. Bad from worse. All the trash we put back into the unit at this point.
Honestly, it was 95% trash.
That might actually be generous.
A couple of end tables and in the back of this photo there are three bar stools. The vacuums were trash, unfortunately.
I have a bit of hope on this piece of furniture. I think it needs to be painted, new knobs and new inserts in the bottom doors and it might be a great piece.
Does anyone know anything about this piggy? This might just possibly be worth something, but he's pretty rough.
These were my two favorite things from the unit. An 18" wooden ruler and a little seal.
The seal had a little hole in his back and a spike on the bottom, so I'm assuming that this guy is a birthday candle holder. I couldn't find a very good way to photograph him, until I thought to use the space between the hood and the side of the car.
I love that ruler. Why? because it's longer than 12" and shorter than a yard.
Funny, I know.
These were pretty cool. Commemorative Coke bottles. 1984 SEC Championship (Florida Gators) bottles, two NASCAR bottles, an old empty one that's pretty damaged and the 50th Anniversary Publix edition. Publix is a grocery store chain, that's been around over 50 years!
This glass bowl is kind of psychedelic and I remember people having these in their homes in the 70s. IT was the 70s, right?
The fake stained glass lamp shade is nice. I hope it cleans up.
Tom spent more time than just the nine hours on that unit. He had to go back for all the trash in the unit the next day and he arrived before me on the day of the clean out. If you don't completely clean out the unit, then you are charged an additional $100. He also paid for the unit (far too much for what was found.) It was a learning experience and we'll do it again, I'm sure, but this unit was not profitable.
Oh! We also found BudMan. We've already got him listed on ebay, here.
Hope you're having a great day!
