Come Junkin' With Me

I'm heading across the state lines
into Pennsylvania to do some antiquing.

Okay -- junking.  My kind of hunting trip.

If you want to come along, you better be quick.  The red minivan leaves in about 20 minutes!

I'm checking out some Craigslist things.  Among them are these:

Now you know I don't like to spend more than $15 on anything.
So I may have to do a teensy bit of negotiating here and there.
I'm betting on me.

Right here in New Jersey, there's a beautiful Henkel-Harris hutch-style cupboard for sale -- for $50.
Fifty dollars for Henkel-Harris, top of the line, American-made furniture.
Someone needs to buy that puppy.
Or I'm in danger of buying it myself.

So, why am I buying more little tables and chairs?  I'll tell you tomorrow.
But now . . . I'm outta here!   -- Cass

  1. Wow! Amazing! I wish I were closer!
    Have a great time! Happy Hunting!

  2. Cass -- I wanna go, I wanna go!!!! How I wish we were closer together -- how fun to go "junkin'" (which is what I call it -- I don't usually pay "antique" prices so you can't really call it "antiquing"! ) You have much better finds in your part of the world than we do on the prairie!

    Have fun and I can't wait to see the treasures you find!


  3. Oh Cass Sweetie....
    Stop, stop I am running as fast as my little feet will take me. I want to go. I want to go too. I love antiquing. Oh what a fun day.

    Love junkin. Isn't Craigs List the best? I have found some pretty good bargains on there. Love that place. Oh how I wished I lived closer. What a fun day. I can hear the laughter coming from the van already.

    Honk honk, get out of the way, we are on a mission today. Chairs? I can't wait to see what you are up to now. I love visiting sweetie. Have a glorious day. SO wish I lived closer. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  4. That's what I like to do junkin! ^_^

    Blue Dishes

  5. Sounds like fun. I could use the cupboard, but I'm not sure where I would put it.

  6. Cass,
    You know I would be there in a heart beat. And to think I left Chatham!

  7. Hi dad had an antiquing store and some very beautiful forniture are now in my house!!!! He gave me a splendid XIV century table..... in my new house I'm going to take a pic and I'll show you .... we don't have any Thanksgiving , but if we're going to be near NY in Novembre I'll spend the Thanksgiving in THAT OLD HOUSE it will be a pleasure!!!
