My Coolest Find Ever

8.31.2015

On Friday I decided I deserved a little retail therapy after having dental work done on Thursday. So I got my shower and dressed, hopped in my car, and headed to an antique mall. I wasn't looking for anything specific, but was keeping my eye out maybe for something that would work with upcoming fall decorating.

By golly I do believe I found the most perfect and unique thing evah!

I was going to wait and share it when I use it in an upcoming fall tour, but I couldn't wait!

When I first spied this in a booth I had no idea what it was until I studied it some more.

It has this galvanized body and a canvas bag and these cool straps.





It's a super cool fruit picking bucket and I can't wait to use it in my fall decor. 

Some of the lettering has worn off, but it reads:

HANDY PICKING BUCKET
FRUIT
PICKING EQUIP. CO.
LAWRENCE, MICH

My first time seeing one of these and I'm sure you may see it more than once this fall.

Have a fabulous week!

  30. My first thought was that you always find cool stuff so how could this be the "coolest ever". But, I must admit, this is totally cool.

    Can't wait to see all the different ways you will use it.

  31. Great find Kim! It looks perfect for a Fall vignette. I was thinking I could use one of those next year for the mini orchard we planted at the mountain cottage a couple of seasons ago. Next year we plan on having a lot of fruit!
