a car packed full of "junk"...

Ask anyone who knows me - there are not many things that I consider "junk."  I prefer the term stuff.  And I know a lot of vintage lovers feel the same way.  So feast your eyes on all the stuff I managed to pack into my car awhile back.

Never let anyone tell you how much stuff you *cannot* fit into a VW.  Here's proof.  And note that my toddler's carseat was also in there at the same time!

Some of the things are for sale in my 2 Etsy vintage shops - menzocollection and milkglassandmetal.  But most of them I've added to my personal collection of stuff.  : )    Oh, and that *sale* sign you see is from my own yard sale that I held earlier the same day...needless to say, I ended up with a net gain of stuff.

First, the backseat...

Now, the front seat...

The passenger side view....

And, of course, the trunk...

As you can see, there's not much of a limit as to what I can fit into a car. 

Finally, here are a bunch of chairs that I took home 2 at a time on the same day.  The wooden ones later fell apart on me.  The 1960s vinyl seats are now at our weekend home in my south Louisiana hometown.  And the chippy white iron chairs are destined for our front porch in Houston.  The *chippy* stuff is actually vinyl and not paint, so it all has to come off before I can use them.

And my husband doesn't know it yet, but the aluminum Christmas tree will adorn the front porch of our weekend home.  He knows it's going to the house...he just doesn't know where I'm going to put it.  We already have one I bought years ago for our Houston house.  I love that thing!


  1. LOL! Had to laugh as this is so typical of us vintage lovers! Hope you remember to take photos of the Aluminum Christmas tree! My Mom still has her aluminum tree and the rotating light too. I wish she would let me have it but she won't part with it! LOL!

  2. I'll definitely post photos of the tree on the porch! I still need to get it there, though.

    We had one when I was a kid, but we didn't have the color wheel. I didn't even know they came with color wheels b/c we had it a decade after no one had them anymore. LOL.

    This one came with the genuine color wheel. I only had a reproduction color wheel before.

  3. I was very pleased to find this site. I definitely enjoyed reading every little bit of it and I have it bookmarked to check out new stuff posted regularly. Junk cars
