I've seen this dwelling a thousand times on our way to the Oregon Coast....but there's never been a "sale" there before! My kids thought I was out of my mind to even consider stepping foot on the property. But I had a gut feeling that there was some great junk under the piles of plastic flotsam and jetsam. My gut feeling turned to concern when I saw an enormous "100% NRA" poster on the front door. Still, I persevered. "Hello....Hello...", I called. Finally, a mountain man came around from the back of the house. Happily for me, he was not carrying a weapon. We did a little business.....
6 glass bricks: $2 each. The metal crate: $1.
Galvanized tub: $2. 6 wooden legs: $2 for the lot. Milk bucket: $1. Wire canning basket: $1. Lamp fixture piece with glass flowers: $1
Keys: $2 for the lot. Many of them are imprinted with words like "Castle", "GAS" & "U.S.A." Perfect for crafting.
Lesson learned: Sometimes you have to risk your life to get the good stuff.
