These goodies were from this past weekend and the weekend before. OK, I have some splainin' to do with this dresser. I came up with several
#1 - It was a great bargain. I know, it doesn't always justify buying something I don't need. I set out to buy just the little stuff, but couldn't pass this up. The veneer is peeling off in several places, but the garage doesn't care about that. #2 - Great storage. I need something with lots of deep drawers because I'm running out of storage space; my cabinets around the perimeter of the garage are completely full. #3 - It came with a bevelled mirror and the claw feet sitting on top. I need to do something with those feet. I forgot to get a picture of the mirror, but will get one when I get around to fixing it up. The globe came from the same sale. #4 - These gorgeous knobs. 10 of them in perfect condition.........
I'll find something else to use on the dresser. These are just too nice to be
in the garage. I also found these 2 quilts. The one on top is really old and a bit tattered, but I still love it. The one on the bottom isn't real old, but it's soft and I love the colors. My hand was just a little quicker than the woman standing next to me when we both reached for this coral. No, no, I didn't fight her for it :-)
I'll never be able to pass up a typewriter at a good price. The book was from another sale and came complete with a receipt for a library fine....Shirley Smith had to pay .30 in 1953.
Personal and Community Health 1948.....humorous reading.
History of England 1880,
This will be a good one to curl up with when I can't sleep.
This personal "hands off" note from Geo. F. Roesch is falling out of this paper weight. I think I'll put something else inside but keep this original note behind it.
I got all 22 cards from the 30's and 40's for just $2. They all have writing inside, but I love them for the graphics.
Reverse painted silhouettes. The one on the left has a convex frame.
Both of these have convex frames.
A few vintage ornaments, lace, and trim.
I'll have lots of fun with these jewels from a local antique shop. They were all marked way down because of a few missing stones and broken clasps.
