Obsessed or Possessed?

We've both had canned hams on our minds lately....can we say "constantly" lately? Perhaps we are obsessed. Probably! That's all either of us can think about. We've got craigslist alerts on our phones to "ping" us as soon as one is entered as an ad. Crazy, huh? Yeah, you might say so. Anyways....here you go....our latest finds. Below is my little bread loaf, it's a Sante Fe, not sure of the year but I was told it was a 1969. The inside looks older than that to me, but we shall soon find out. This just in, fresh from an MMS on my phone! Dix bought this lil cutie a few minutes ago, I think she said it's a 1947, but we'll have more details and pics later.
PoWeR tO ThE JuNkpEOpLe!!!

Last Weekend Update

Wow! Both Dix and I had great junkin' weekends. Dixie spent hers in diggin' around in Idaho and found this FUNKY chair. I had a grand ol' time at a warehouse sale in Tacoma, WA. Did I ever score! Here's a pic of some of the loot I filled my car with.I've got this thing for anything with compartments, almost everything I picked up has compartments or slots for storage.

Love the rusty pipe thingys...now I have to find something to do with them...candleholders maybe?

The Farm Chicks Show was absolutely FAB and we came home totally exhausted from it! But it's a good thing. Here are a few pics we snapped with an I Phone

of our booth. Our neon signs were the talk of the show...wouldn't ya know that we snapped a photo without the neon turned on!
The JuNk MaNnis went along for the trip. Serena's theme for the show was candy and our little candy striper (not stripper) uniforms fit right in!

The second the show opened these OPEN letters sold. We also had another neon SHOP sign that didn't even make it into the building before it sold. Ladies at the Farm Chicks really do know how to SHOP!

Here's a pic of our cash wrap (sorry its blurry).

Close up of the mannis.

By the end of the first day this display was gone!

Crowds around our booth.

Just had to share with you a pic of Debi of Ormolulu. She did an outstanding job of collecting and displaying her finds. Great job Debi! You had a terrific booth!

One more pic...ya'll know we love to have fun! Apparently our neighbors in the booth next door thought our ladies needed to be covered up during set up. We all had a good hard belly laugh with this! We are just a bunch of fun lovin' junkers.

Tee He He!
