Club G.W. No. 14 and St. Peter's Barn Sale

September 26, 2011


There are some annual thrifting adventures you wait patiently for all year long.  St. Peter's Barn Sale is one of those adventures for me.  Last year I scored a gagillion pieces of vintage jewelry for a song, as well as religious items I use in creating my vintage jewelry designs.  On that front I have to say that this year was a big bust. {Hear me sobbing in the background.}

HOWEVER, I did manage to score something that I thought was pretty cool.  Can you guess what it is?

I have to admit that I wasn't quite sure, either, but I knew that I loved it and had to have it!  (Sound familiar?)  I opened the lid and found this.

Hhmmm, I thought, pretty interesting.  Do those metal baskets (for lack of a better word) come out?

They most certainly do!  {Insert applause and happy dance here.}

I could only imagine what I might use this vintage tub for, as well as the metal baskets within.  I did a little research and it turns out that it's a canning cooler!  Each metal "jar holder" is made to hold 6 canning jars.  But let's be honest.  It's not like I do any canning around here, ever.  So I was very happy to see that the jar holders could be used for something else.

That something else will be the subject of another post, hopefully soon, cause I can't wait to use them!  And the tub itself will make a great storage container.

I reluctantly paid $15.00 for it.  Just found it online for $55.00.
