Here are the metal letters I purchased at the Alameda Swap Meet! I screwed them on an old piece of fence picket from the fence "pieces & parts" stash that I have and drilled two small holes to feed the wire through to hang it. Since we were rained out this month we are planning to go again in April; I can't wait!! We also plan on stopping by the "Dead Storage" again. I hope to find some wonderful treasures!!
My mind is spinning with the possibilities that are awaiting me!

Last weekend we went to the Alameda Swap Meet (in the rain!), not many vendors. I did find some rusty letters that spell out our last name that I am going to hang off our mailbox, I will post a picture once I turn the Q into an O and hang them! On our way out we followed the signs that said "Dead Storage" and to our delight, it was exactly what we thought it would be and more! It was a huge warehouse with a ton of stuff from unclaimed storage. I found this table and pitcher for $23. We will be stopping by here on our next trip to the Alameda Swap Meet for sure!! Though we were not real successful in the junking department we had a great weekend with good friends which is priceless!
