Junk Hunt

I had ten dollars in my pocket and a deep need for new materials...

Free Stuff
So my friend Jules and I went on a Junk Hunt around Dallas, TX.


The first place we drove up to was a yard covered in junk with signs up that said "FREE" so we dug around for maybe 8 minutes and found some goodies. Then, we went to a few estate sales.

Estate Sale
I'm kind of new to estate sales and I don't think I'm emotionally ready for them. Most of the time you walk into a house and sadness slams into your chest.  At the second estate sale we went to, it was a recent death, and the man that was selling everything couldn't even give me a price or count the money I handed him. He looked so sad and detached. I bought some books, a few silk scarves, and a bag. I felt like the devil. What if it was his wife/sister/mom and I was taking her favorite scarf? I decided right then that I hated estate sales.

The covers on these books are so pretty, I think I may start a small collection :)
Do you look for specific items when you go on a junk hunt?

Below are some of the items I got for free from peoples front yards.

wooden forks and spoons
why not?

Does anyone know what this is for?

it works!

You'll see these again.

At the last estate sale, they had a few busted pianos, but I would've bought this one.

After a day of Junk Hunting, I've learned a few things

1. You can get A LOT for free.
2. Estate sales are sad and make me want to cry.
3. You don't need more than 10 bucks in your pocket for this kind of hunt.
4. If you are on an antibiotic, keep your butt out of direct sunlight. I now have some kind of full body rash from being in direct sunlight for too long.
5. Junk Hunting is the best way to spend a Saturday morning.

Now that I have new stuff, I need to do something with it. So many ideas and too little time.
