The "Someone's Junk May Be Your Treasure?" Story

It was an ordinary day.  Visiting the neat little town of Havre de Grace, Maryland with friends Jerry and Just Sue.  After a lunch date at the Tidewater Grill we decided to take a tour of the Chesapeake Bay town and ended up once again at the Seneca Cannery.  I wrote a story about the building a few years ago, telling how they at one time made tin cans for use in just about any industry, but primarily for food distribution.  Well, the place is now a haven for antique hunters and as we entered, we each went our separate ways in the huge old industrial building; me beginning a photo tour of items that were ... well, let me say it kindly ... going to have a hard time finding a friend to buy them.  So, here are a few different, or should I say "unusual" items that I will share with you.  Maybe you might have an interest in one of them, but I suspect you may be passing on a chance to own any one of them.  It was another extraordinary day in the life of an ordinary guy.


Two mirrors and a few hair pieces look as if they are from ancient times.  Click on images to enlarge them.
This kitty may have a tough time finding a permanent home.
This is an entire basket of Jesus fans that are leftovers from a funeral home.
I don't believe this has weighed anything in quite some time.
Is this a novelty mug?  Lash's Kidney & Liver Bitters?
A $6 glass slipper.
This lovely hat looks so nice on my wife's head and matches her scarf, but ....
A glass rooster waiting for a home.  May be some time before that happens.
And, these four beautiful glasses are a must in someone's home.
Doesn't everyone need one of these signs?
This very heavy and lengthy fish made of license plates would look nice in any one's home.  To tell you the truth, if I'd had a spot in my home ... I may have been tempted. 
Doesn't everyone want a used shaving brush?
Can you be sure these would work or would you just buy them for display?
This is known as a "Memory Log" and has a price of $135 as well as a note saying it is an amazing piece.  Guess the seller just didn't appreciate just how amazing it really is anymore.
Maybe good for a race car driver.
And when you can no longer stand your spouse playing the piano ...
Can't imagine any of these fuel lines would work anymore, but the sign is neat.
Now who wouldn't want this beautiful lampshade hanging in their dining room?
A few clothespins for $8.00.  If these sell, I have quite a few I may package and drop off.
For the magnet collector I assume.  The quote along the side of the magnet reads: There are more things in men to admire than to despise.  Quote by Albert Camus.  I'm sure you've heard of him.
And the last item is this lovely woman's hat selling for $10.
