After the funeral, we went to see my younger brother and he had a bunch of these old milk crates. He told me to pick one out and I could have it. I picked the rustiest one with a name plate.
He asked me if I was going to sandblast it and paint it.
I told him you don't ruin perfectly good rust.
I found more railroad nails.
I don't know why I like these so much, but I do. I like how old they are, I guess. 1912. Someone told me that these were made for around 80 years, starting with 1900. Maybe I'll go for a full set. :)
This pencil sharpener is also from my brother. (Who is actually an aficionado of good junk. I don't really think he would have sandblasted that crate and painted it, either.)
I like the sticker on this one.
I also found some blue glass jars, but you've all seen those before.
Tiny towns in Colorado have great prices on those, though!
Thanks for reading!
