Here's the old handle on the printers tray. I am forever picking up little things - I just got a teeny pair of handcarved wooden shoes not too long ago. I need somewhere to put all those teeny things. This will be perfect.
I got these two old motel chairs at the sale out of my regular area. Generally when I see these at yard sales they are either a) very expensive or b) being used by the people at the sale. They are hard to come by! I paid $5.00 for the white one and $2.00 for the red one. I really don't know why one was more than the other. I actually like the red one the best anyway. I now have eight chairs and a two seater glider. I really don't need anymore. But, at around $3.50 each, I had to rescue them for my own.
Two old trays with flowers - 25¢ each, two old dolls - 75¢ total and a painted milk glass apple for 25¢. The Bean said, "Why did you buy this? You don't like milk glass." I found it very interesting that he actually knew that I don't like milkglass. He really pays attention to what I say! *Milk glass lovers, don't hate me. I just don't care for it. ;o)
Another folding ruler. I think I have seven or eight now. It was $3.00. I keep picking them up since they are desirable (and I like them). I keep thinking I will never find any more, so I better buy the ones I do find.
A sweet vintage handmade pincushion for $1.00. People certainly used to go to a lot of trouble for utilitarian things, didn't they?
Two vintage tablecloths - $1.00 each. Each badly in need of a soak, but I think they will come out clean enough to make me happy.
Four fishing net bobbers for $1.00. They were in a big ugly modern looking hurricane vase. I asked if they went with the vase and the lady told me they did. I said, "Well, I really just liked the glass balls, so thanks." "Well, then you can have them for a quarter each". Okey dokey.
Three fun vintage pins - two poodles and one mouse for 25¢ each. The mouse's glasses lift up and down - it's funny.Now, this is sort of boring, but still kind of fun. Glass jars for storage. They are smallish - about five inches tall. All uniform and exactly alike.
