Vintage Picnic : Junk Party Entry!

Howdy~Hey Ya'all
Welcome to my "Junk Party" entry!
I LOVE vintage picnic junk

My picnic basket collection. These are great because you can use them to store decor items you are not displaying at the time. I have one more, but it is up on a high shelf with a plant on it.

I like old Thermos's. I have several of the standard red plaid but love to find cool, unique graphics and unusual lids. Do you have any of these??

I like them in blue...


And Green!!

Hey, how did that Farm Chicks cookbook get out here! Can't keep those Gals away from a good junk party, teehee!!

Do you collect vintage picnic stuff?? I would LOVE to see it!
Thanks for stopping by!
Make sure you pop over to Kennesha's for the rest of the

Great Collection! We have had several over the years for sale in the store, the best one I can recall was the big round jug style in a rosie pink. We filled it with fresh flowers and it sold the same day. I must look for more now that you have reminded me.
Thanks for always leaving me such nice comments on my blog. I'm so bad about commenting:(
