Tool Box Tote Trays and STUFF. Fab Finds $14.00

Featured at One More Time Events Thanks!
Today was my lucky junk shopping day!

Every time I am in town, I go by and check out my favorite Thrift store ... 

Monday ... and here are my picks today.

One black metal, shallow tool tray ... two wooden ones ... a full roll of plastic sheeting ... a nice shop or trouble light ... files ... needle nose and other misc junk stuff.

Every Wednesday Finds ReSale has a parking lot sale where most everything is a Quarter ... 25¢ ... 
YES, 25¢.    

Today, Monday, 7.23.2012, to my surprise they were having an unannounced parking lot sale     and I shopped picked !

Two new piano hinges;  always nice to have for boxes ... four metal files for my 'file photo' craft. Photo Files ... Can be seen here.
Cute little pan in a wire rack ... unknown use.
Neon orange wooden tool box tote. 
Paint and/or a little stain will take of that.
New roll of plastic sheeting ... great for covering tables when I have a garage sale.

A nice trouble or shop light and a metal tool tote.

    New bracket.

WOW, this is a real treasure. 
 A very nice 33" long wooden tool box tote. Notice the narrow partition in the back. Just perfect to tuck in some plates and platters.
I have seen these used for an organizer with remotes and chargers placed in the small section and books and magazines in the front. Lots of uses.
French gray blue and may look brighter when getting a real good cleaning. I did a quick wash just because I could not wait to see how it looked with something in it.

Just a  few vintage dishes and fresh plants makes it look pretty nice. 

I like ... no, I LOVE  it ... 

What do you think??? 

Would you have been happy with all this for just $14.00 ?

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a nice comment ...
