This junk store bakers rack is something I picked up a few years ago and thought it would be useful storage for my craft room. I liked the fact the metal racks were sturdy, could be moved around and the overall condition of the item was in pretty good shape.
For the past few years, this has held props used in photo shoots: cups, plates, utensils, you name it. But as our prop styling needs have calmed down, so has the need to store props here year-round. So, today I purged away.
As you can see, anything that hasn’t been used in over a year goes right into the donation box. Off to Goodwill you go!
But look what I found tucked away in the back! Some soy candles I made 2 years ago in vintage Atlas canning jars. I bought the jars from an Amish farmer in Lancaster, PA and used them to make some candles. I think it’s time to use them in my house!
And I also found this tangerine scented candle (smells like a Lifesaver) that I also made 2 years ago. This one was poured into a tarnished silver plated cup I found at a flea market. Why haven’t I burned this one yet? It smells soooo good.
And lots of samples from my signature home line will now go live on these racks…everything from food storage containers to cookware & bakeware to dinner plates and more.
I am starting to think this purging needs to happen every week to keep things in check. Do you regularly go through your things and donate them?
Have a wonderful weekend!
