Vintage Lake Junkin'

Living life on the lake, the hubby and I are always on the lookout for vintage items that pertain to the water...






While on a road trip in south Alabama we stopped at an antique mall!
(Imagine that! We stopped at a mall! Oh the joys of junkin'!!)  
Among all the lovely treasures we found this...

Vintage canoe...fabulous green color...loaded with wooden paddles...fishing pole...

All that was needed was to load 'er up and haul 'er back...
But, alas, nooooo, not on this trip! Maybe next time...

Next find was locally at one of our favorite haunts...


Vintage motor...fabulous green...and best of all, American made!!

I know most of you have dined in restaurants where these items of all things relating to fishing are hung on the walls and ceilings! Reminds me of many catfish cabins along the river!

Down the next aisle I found these...


Rods, reels, poles...

Of course we will find more vintage lake down the junkin' road and I will undoubtedly share those with y'all too, but now I must go! The LAKE is calling! And with pretty sunny weather leaving us much too soon, I am hopping on the boat for a fun time with friends!





Have a Blessed Day!! And see ya down the junkin' road!!

Hi - my hubby and I love being by the water whenever we can, too - we've got the canoe and kayaks - a major sailboat is on our wish list for the not-too-far future!

Thanks for sharing your finds - and have fun on the lake!

hi Jane, thanks for stopping by. I love to the shop the antiques stores anytime I drive through to the beach. Interesting finds there, it would be fun to paddle the lake in the boat. Love the photo of the sunset on the water. Thanks for taking me shopping with you.

Oh I'm land lock but boy do I like that canoe. Sometimes I have to remind myself I don't need a canoe. Thanks for the visit today.
