Household Junk - Paint Tins

I was given five Indianapolis, IN Fine Art watercolor tins by a lovely art teacher. Stay tuned for what useful thing they become.

Travel Junk - Leather Dr. Bags

These leather Dr./Travel bags are amazing. One's from the Amish auction and the other from Hope, NJ. The better of the two has plaid liner and leather interior straps.

Household Junk - Pinup Coat Rack

A little aging and I've got a nice pin-up girl coat rack. Photos from a 1959 Laff magazine, new paint, Briwax, and vintage hooks. I hate when things are made to look old but it's ok when boobs are involved.

Bric a Brac Junk - Fasco Fan

This deco fan was a throw in with the milkshake machine deal. It's dirty and doesn't work but it sweetened the deal on that God damn blender I spent a ton on.

Bike Junk - Raleigh Sport

I brought this out of a cellar in Greenpoint for $40 bucks and it looks perfect with a new chain, wheels, tires and a $5 seat. Another Raleigh back to life. Shout out to Joe for buying it.

Furniture Junk - Dentist Cabinet

Art Deco dentist cabinet from New Paltz, NY. I saw it one weekend and didn't have room in the car so we had to go back for it the next weekend.

Household Junk - Hamilton Beach Milkshake Machine

I walked by this milkshake machine in the window of a laser printer shop in Brooklyn for 6 years before the guy decided he wanted to sell it. Milkshake mixer, 60's barber shop magazines, and 50's pin-up magazines all for one price.
