Would you Buy it Wednesday!!!!

Love Wednesdays when Junker Newbie has her Would you buy it?
I had been waiting since Saturday to post this wow did it seem like forever!!!

Shoe shine box and brushes...
Was out doing my normal weekly thrifting and seen this shoe shine box at the goodwill $4 passed it up and went on to some yard sales came across all these lil shoe shine brushes most of them were a buck and the small ones were 50 cents the wood shoe thing was $2.  So I raced back to the goodwill and it was still there thik I am going to give it a coat of stain or would it look right if I painted it black?  Let me know what you would have done with it!!!


  1. I would have bought this for my 15 year old son! He wants to be in the military and polishes his boots all the time already! I don't know what he'd like for a finish on it, but I'd stain it dark. What a fun find, thanks for sharing.

  2. What a great kit! Once you find one piece of something you feel you need to collect the whole thing/set. I completely understand! I have old milk bottle collections/scoops/kitchen utensils. I'd stain it dark and display, there are some great pieces there! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. It's like you were meant to buy it! I love it, reminds me of the one my dad had when we were kids. Does anyone still shine their shoes anymore?
    I'd go with stain and maybe stencil a graphic or something like 'shoe shine 5c a pair".
    What a fun find!

  4. Like the idea of stain and finding a graphic from graphic fairy thank u girls you are the best!!!

  5. Wow, isn't that were totally meant to have buy it!! I can't wait to see what you do to it!! =)
