Beep! Beep!

Sharing today a birthday present from Dan.

(My birthday was in February and I'm just now getting around to posting this).





 A Model T car horn!






I always prefer old junk that he actually has to hunt for.






Found: for $6.00.  (Yes, we share the prices because that's part of the fun...knowing the deal!)






Found: in a sweet spot for antique junk...
 where lean-to's are built onto the existing structure,
like shack pasted onto shack with corrugated fiberglass
to shelter the seller's hoard.

Where shelves groan under the weight of junk,
and vintage treasures are piled so high and hoarded so closely together
that they may have to call the fire department to get you out
if the whole display decides to collapse on you.






THAT kinda sweet spot junk shop.

That's my favorite kind of shop....junk falling from the shelves. What a fun birthday present and so thoughtful too. My kind of gift too.
