Little Red Wonder Junk!




Excuse me, Georgie.


That's better.  Thanks, babe.

Last Spring, during The Midwestern Junkin' & Family History Huntin' Tour with Li'l Red & The Wonder Twins... my mama and I happened upon a cool roadside antique mall.  

Would you like to catch a little glimpse of it?


Aunt-T's-Ques Wayside Shoppe is a "One Man General Store" in Hartford, South Dakota.


After spending WAY too much time in what is possibly the worst Goodwill in the Universe, we were so excited to happen upon this junk haven, which is located on the south side of I-90 off Exit 387.


Mmmm....so many treasures!


I could have spent all day diggin' through this shop.


I so love vintage Christmas goodies,  

don't you? 

Alas, I ended up buying just one thing.  I saw it outside as we drove up to the shop.

Remember this?


Anyhoo, I thought it would come in pretty handy for something...and tonight, it did!


SALT!

Have I mentioned that it's snowing?

Another example of how vintage items can be put to practical use!!

I hope that YOU are having a glorious weekend!

  The tin cup was one of my most recent junkin' finds, and is available for sale at The Little Red Shop.  I purchased the steamer trunk at Goodwill years ago.  It, AND the cool red can, along with many other treasures, are available to rent as photography props and for special events, through…The Little Red Shop ~ Vintage Rentals.  The trunk is locked shut...and I don't have the key.

Lock-picking advice, anyone?
