The Sale You Shouldn't Have Missed...


Well, technically you haven't missed it yet.
The not-to-be-believed
from Troy and Rod of Junk Exchange is still going strong
and will be through Sunday.
I know that so many of you really, really want to attend,
and please believe me when I tell you that I'm not pouring salt here for those who can't....
but if there's any way possible, you definitely owe it to yourself
to make the drive to Waco to attend this sale of a lifetime.

I'm not exaggerating when I say that to me,
this was at least as exciting as Warrenton, such is the exceptional quality,
variety and rock-bottom pricing of the goods being offered at Troy and Rod's sale.

It's been an incredibly long day, so I'm just going to toss up
as many images as I can of my day at Troy and Rod's
5000 sq ft warehouse with a minimum of narration.
Tomorrow, I'll be posting photos of everything I brought home,
and you will not want to miss those pics!

Let's get going!


There's Troy himself winking at me as I approached the sale.
Cheeky monkey!
Okay, truth be told, the sun was in his eyes, 
or the brilliance of the dollar signs he saw 
reflected in my eyes caused him to squint.
Whatev.
Meet Troy!


Great pic of Troy, super sucky pic of me, 
which is why I made it small and blurry.
Vanity, much?


Shutters and gorgeous vintage wallpaper rolls.



 


 


 



My pile in its early stages. 
Oh, trust me, it got bigger!

 


 

So many gorgeous watercolor and oil paintings and prints.



 

A stunning porch glider. Mindy, you really, really need this!

 

Troy's super sweet sister, who is an absolute doll and a tireless helper.



 

Please somebody, grab this incredible industrial piece!
It was too big for me to get this trip, 
but this would be such a versatile piece for some lucky buyer.
Again, I can see this in Mindy's of Primitiques 'n Poetry's space.


Troy's hussy, Jezebel!


Loads and loads of vintage Christmas.


And I had the unexpected pleasure of meeting 
the wonderful Alice of Yesteryears Jewels and JUNKMARKET Style while there. 
What a fun lady, and just as nice as she is talented!

I also had the opportunity to meet local gal Jessica of Sugar Moon.
She has a fabulous blog that I recommend you hightail it over to right now!


Cool vintage car stuff.



 

This vintage scale was only a dollar!
Didja hear me?? A DOLLAR!!!
(Are Rod and Troy nuts?????)
Quite possibly, and lucky for me, 
I'm not above taking unfair advantage when the situation warrants it! ;-)




 

I grabbed each and every one of these. 50 cents each!

 


 

They have an epic selection of vintage bottles. 
There are tons more in boxes, and only 50¢ and $1 each!



The Dynamic Junkin' Duo hard at work!



 


 


 


 



More Christmas!


And this....big and chunky and wonderful, 
and all mine for a ridiculously low price.
Coming soon to Fiona and Twig, The Booth!

Oh, and one final image for tonight...
Yep, you guessed it.
This....
 

....incredibly exquisite, achingly delicate watercolor made the trip home with me.
It was a gift from Troy. 
Have I mentioned how much I love this man?!?!

My mom and I had the best time ever at the big sale, 
and we spent the better part of 6 hours there with 
Troy, Rod and the rest of the Junk Exchange gang.
It was a day to remember spent with friends hard to forget.

Be sure to visit me tomorrow as I unveil all my new treasures!

Wow, I am bummed out that I couldn't go. You had me at the first picture with the wallpaper, then all of the bottles, finials galore, and the table stacked high with fabric! OMG That's my kind of sale, great stuff piled high everywhere. I would have spent a fortune. Lisa
