Three Potato Four is a very cool shop owned by a husband an wife who share a love of collecting vintage and retro pieces of furniture, accessories, knickknacks, you name it .. and sharing it with the world . They have barn sales usually the last weekend of every month and they are chock full of some really cool things , A little while ago they announced that they were having a movie warehouse sale at the Philadelphia Navy Shipyard .. but I heard about it too late and was not able to make it out there .
But luckily I am on their email list because lo and behold a couple days go I rec'd an email stating they were extending it for another week .. you can imagine the hoots and hollers that followed !
So... we drove out there today and found out that all of items were used in The Last Airbender .. though I have never seen the movie I have heard about it .. and we knew we would see some really cool stuff ! I didn't take any pictures inside .. I wasn't sure how they would have felt about it .. though now I wish I would have asked so I could show you more ! But I did take a picture of a very cool cart / wagon .. possibly something that was used with horses .. and if I had somewhere to put it (and a way to get it home ..lol !) I would have loved to have bought it .
Since that was not an option I did find some really cool things inside ... and the prices were unbelievably cheap ! The whole lot cost $42.00 !!
I am not sure what the signs were used for but they were the only 2 left and I had to have them .. not sure how they may end up in my art or if I will just keep them for ornamental purposes in my studio.
I don't know what these were used for either but I thought they may be cool if I used them for a mixed media collage instead of a canvas...
I nearly squealed when I saw these and when I opened them I was even more excited . They are vintage looking journals .. and .. the papers inside them are a really nice and heavy watercolor paper. The deckled edges were a total bonus .. these are probably my favorite finds of the day ♥
Tomorrow is the first day of school .. wish us luck .. this summer has been filled with enjoying the extra sleep we were getting .
Summer .. you always wave goodbye too soon .
