Oh Hey! (wood Wakefield)

And the other things I found (July 14th edition)

I might have mentioned something in my last post along the lines of bring home less...I also might have forgotten that I had mentioned that.   Summer sales are in full swing and the plethora of sales means less competition to find that hidden treasure.   The sale I had the best luck at I arrived 2 hours after the posted start time!

This particular one peaked my interest because it was that of a retired electrician.  I was hoping to restock my supply of wood and metal boxes- and I did.



A few other surprises were waiting for me after I piled up all my boxes.  My husband and I kept walking over to this table.  He really loved it and I was on the fence, not sure about the mass appeal of ducks.   The owner came by and told me about how, as a child he remembered helping his parents make the table in the 50s and his job was to smash all the tiles.  Sold.  Sometimes it just takes those little personal details to make a good item feel extra special.


Next to the table was a folded up wood chair- I loved the age and character is had, but need another chair like I need a hole in my head.  Old habits die hard, so I gave the chair a quick flip and that's when I saw the tag on the back.

Heywood Wakefield folding chair- tag reads C5 795 - Walnut
Truth be told this Heywood Wakefield folding chair has seen better days, but for $3.00 I couldn't leave it behind.  I have not spent too much time looking up the origins, I'd love to hear your opinions if you have them.


But wait- that's not all.  I also picked up a ton of smalls.  I might have screamed "STOP THE CAR!" when I saw the globe at a yard sale we were driving right by.  It's made of metal- I do not apologize.


Call me crazy, but this might be my favorite find of the day.  A large square black ashtray with a horse head in the middle.  It is beautiful!


Or this relish? set marked Brock of California.


It's complete with the original wood lazy susan.


Love learning about what others "find?"

  1. Lovely finds, I love all the metal/wood boxes. I always look or those too! The folding chair is great too (I have quite a few of those and they come in handy when extra seating is needed).

    1. The bag is awesome. The shape is a little wonky from years of storage, so I'll have to figure out a way to get it back to it's original form.

    2. Do you have a steamer? Try stuffing it full of towels to get it to the shape you want then giving it a good steam all over and let it dry. Should bring it back into shape. :) Great bag indeed!!

  5. Stunning finds, as always! I know you'll do well selling these. I've found and sold doppelgangers of all of these. Especially loving the metal boxes, lunch box, and Aladdin thermoses. Got a collection 'o those...

  7. Is that a Jadeite canister on the table? I think the table is neat, and having the story makes it even better! That same globe is at my grandparents' house but the plastic arm thing is broken (otherwise I would totally have swiped it! ;)

    Great finds all around!

  9. Love it all! That table is absolutely charming--especially with the story attached. I can see why you decided to bring it home.

  10. I would have done the same thing if I saw that globe! I'm a sucker for them. And the metal ones? Omg. Great finds!

  12. Yet another first person shooter game this time around, but
    the first Far Cry was quite good. If you look around your community, our country,
    and the world, there is little evidence of loving actions.
    ''. When it comes to bridging your skills gap in gaming world then you can do anything to prove yourself.
    I'm hoping that all of you smarter ' more learned authors
    out there have a way to describe the intensity of this desire that you must have to journey in your own recovery.
    Originally established as a sanctuary for the Nilgiri Tahr, the
    'The Eravikulam National Park' has now turned
    into a highly popular tourist spot. We actually
    become happier people. It works across Windows XP,
    Windows Vista, and Windows 7, and Maxi - Vista surprised me by how well it worked
    with it. Do you want a top notch gaming PC that
    can play all the latest games at max or near max settings. When you set out to influence another’s feelings for you,
    are you not interfering with that person’s free will.
