Scavenger Hunting

I love markets. Read the post on my other blog about my Top 10 Markets and you'll see what I mean.

But when you're searching for just the right supply item or ready-to-upcycle vintage treasure, it can be hard to stay energetic in the long run. After your tenth trip to your local thrift shop, are you still pumped?

Scavenge at Beyond Junk
For crafters and artisans, it's frustrating that those great flea market and swap meet finds can be so few and far between. So I'm asking, what do you want to work with that you can never find?

Coins, Keys & Trinkets at Beyond Junk
Plastic Charms & Beads at Beyond Junk
Examples of hard to find gear:
  • Vacuum tubes
  • Letterpress blocks
  • Pocket watch parts
  • Vintage coins & buttons
  • Skeleton keys (antique or replica)
  • Tiny toys & figurines
  • Vintage beads & chain
Is your coveted supply item listed above? Can you add anything to the list?
