Now that I'm an official junker, it is part of my job description to go out and find new things to sell at the swap meet. It has given me the opportunity to buy things that I think are really cool but would not buy for myself otherwise. Like toys for boys!
I found this amazing hand made balsa wood glider plane at a sale last weekend. I got to talk with the older gentleman who made it. He said that he used to make lots of them when he was younger. It is made from the thinnest wood and paper and is very detailed, right down to the pilot & cockpit!
Have you ever noticed how themes develop when you are out junking? I found more airplanes at another sale the next day!
Amalie. The main character finds a similar box hidden behind a tile in her bathroom and sets out to find it's original owner. It is such a feel good movie!
Hitting the sales on the weekends makes me feel good. I always take the time to chat with the people having the sales. Especially if it is an estate sale. You will get neat stories about the previous owners and the objects you have selected. It makes them even more special!
