Looking for a Sign

What do you do when you drive by a “Storage Sale” sign…you turn around as fast as you can and find that sale!!! I wasn’t sure what I was going to find, but it was a dream come true. I even dragged my sister with me and went back the next day to hunt for more treasures and wish I would have gotten more!

I have a thing for rusty-crusty things with character, lots of character. Doesn’t matter what it is or was, but I love the look and feel it gives off. It’s got a story to tell and I listen.

I never thought I would collect salt and pepper shakers, but if they are really worn and tattered, it’s for me, I'm hooked…that’s my kind of collection!

I love keys, so why not locks…they're friends! Again only if they are rusty and used do they catch my eye.

I’m dreaming of the day I see that sign again and practically stop traffic whenever I drive past that corner!


  1. I love rusty metaled patinas as well. My husband has always joked that people need a tetanus shot before entering our house. Those salt and pepper shakers are fabulous!

  2. That is soo funny, that is exactly what MY husband says!!! I will have to tell him I am not the only "rusty" lover out there!

  3. Vintage will forever have a place in the world. The older they are, the more favorable they are to collectors. I’m sure that these locks had served a lot of excellent years of “locking” service. :P
