Some people make lists in January to mark their resolutions. I like to make a list every year of those things I'm looking to find while out junk hunting.
Every year my list changes.
Some things on the list are constant - like Scrabble games. I always buy these games when I see them because I use the letters in craft projects.
Other things come off the list as my taste's change or as I acquire things.
Don't get me wrong, I don't carry a list around with me while shopping at yard sales. My motto always will be - if it speaks to you go for it. Instead I use lists to help me focus my hunts and remember those things that I saw somewhere online and would love to have for myself. Really it is just fun for me to think about and then record those things that I would love to find while treasure hunting.
Here is what is on the list for 2012. Subject to change :)
All images are from Pinterest. I created a board called "What I Am Looking For". I invite you to follow my board if you want to see what I add as the year goes on. Or maybe you could start your own board.
Pink Pyrex - Cinderella Bowls
I blew it on this one. I saw these at a flea market last summer priced around $40 - which is a total steal for these. I hesitated because I was trying to conserve money. My mistake because when I went back for them they were long gone.
Orange Polka Dot Pyrex.
I've never even seen these in person! I want them!
Pink Bottle Brush Trees
I love bottle brush trees but don't currently have any pink.
I love vintage store displays. I snatch them up whenever I see them and can afford them.
A Vintage Bike
I've been looking for a cool vintage bike for years. Way before they started selling repros at Walmart. I always wanted to park it in my front yard, add a basket, fill it with flowers and just leave it there.
Let's hope that I can find one or all of these items on my wish list!
