My Weekend Haul

I took a last minute trip up to my mom's this past weekend to visit with some friends who were visiting the area.  Of course I had to check Craigslist Thursday night just in case there was something that caught my eye.  I found a few things at a parking lot sale on Saturday morning, but one estate sale on Friday caught my eye and two hours of my time.  These things take time.....

Camera love!
Oops, I cut off the top of the rusty old canister.  I printed out a fun label from The Graphics Fairy and attached it with a little Mod Podge.

These Kodak Tourist cameras were made from 1948-1951.  This one will be sharing a spot next to another one in my very small collection.

Brownie Hawkeye and Brownie Junior.  I remember the Hawkeye.

Vintage girly goodies.

I don't know if the two of these milk glass beauties were part of a larger set, but I sure was attracted to them.  I liked the subtle colors in the little painting.

I love these cut steel shoe clips marked L.W. Paris.  I was shocked when I got home and noticed that the plain looking gold chain on the left is marked 14K; it makes up for the ring that's marked China.

This pretty brass box covered with black velvet is actually a purse.

I'll never pass up a shell collection.  How about these and another shoe box full for $5.

Is there such a thing as a "rose shell?"

I'm hoping to get pictures of the rest of my finds this week.  Lots of cleaning and grime removal to tackle first.  I have another big antique show on Sunday, so it's going to be a busy week:-)
