Antiques Roadshow, I was there!

OK NOT really, but I felt like I was.
I think my FIL should charge people to come visit his basement.

 It truly feels like the antiques roadshow.  This basement is a bloggers dream of vintage, grain sacks, gadgets, and accessories galore.
 Not to mention the furniture he has down there.  I was a bit overwhelmed and tried to snap as many pictures as I could.  I told him don't be surprised if a magazine contacts him.
Let me show you just a tad.
A lot of German Steins, bottles, etc...

I really love this fan!

Old coffee grinder

Old meat scale
HERE is a little tip for you on these bags.  My FIL told me his friend gets them from the grocery store...they as you can see are rice bags.  I came home with a ton of them. Check out your local grocer and ask them if they have some rice bags, and if you could have them.  They throw them out anyhow.

Cool old decanters.

This black candle holder, I spied in a corner of his basement.  I asked him if I could have it, in a very subtle way of course.  All I had to say is, wow this is cool..then he said TAKE it!.  My husband asked where was I going to hang it....well as you can see I found the perfect home for it. Not sure how old it is, but I sure like it.
I will be sharing with you just a quick project I did last night with my rice bags.

See you tomorrow night for the NEWBIE party.

It must not go unnoticed that I blab about the MOUNTAIN of giveaways...
10 cans of chalk paint and more.
Go check it have to be in it to win it.

Your FIL has some great stuff, Debbie!! I would have loved to have looked through all that. I really like the candle holder. How nice of him to give it to you. :)
Have you ever seen the show American Pickers on the History Channel? Looks like a place they'd like to look through.

OMGosh! Look at all that stuff and it is even semi-organized-not just a hodgepodge of junk. Good thing you didn't admire everything or you would have been trailering a UHaul home~ xo Diana

I think you exhibited quite a lot of self control if you only asked for one thing....

I enjoyed your Niagra Falls pics. Been there, done that. Many years ago when my sons were young , we went for a week. Stayed on the Canadian side, ate in the towers , did the Maid of the Mist( I almost threw up over the side). It was a great vacation!!
