The Bean and I went out today for a last day of Hurrah before we crack down on the old Homeschoolin'. Lunch out in an actual restaurant - not a sandwich in the car in between stops and then a trip to Walmart just to look at stuff, not to buy groceries. Of course, I managed to squeeze in a wee little trip to a thrift along the way.
I found these very long skinny candles that are supposed to go in flower arrangements.
To Etsy they will go!
Then I found this sweet old rawhide lampshade for a song.
A peck fruit basket full of velvety millinery fruit.
Etsy or keep? Half and half?
This old hand painted plate is absolutely wonderful. Click on it to read the little poem - spelling errors and all. What time and patience it must have taken to paint all that! It's signed and has Bavaria on the back. A bit of research and it will go to Etsy or ebay.
A very sweet old musical jewelry box. It played fine at the store, but now the music box goes SPROING when you wind it. ;o( Still a cute box!
A very large yellow safety pin and bead basket. I have several more of these that I have had on Etsy and in the Flea Market Booth and they never sold. So, why I picked up this one....I still do not know. Maybe I will list them as a LOT and see what happens.
A neat old wooden handle jump rope in the Bargain Bin.
I spotted this box on the way to pay - hidden behind a stack of puzzles.
This was the reason I got out of bed this morning.
NINE decks of vintage child's card games with the most divine graphics ever. I haven't even looked at every single one of them yet. I like to save boxes of surprises for while we watch TV at night. I can't wait to dig through them. Check out Gay Dog on the top row. And the monkey! And the bunny! And the! And the! And the! Oh.My.Word. I'll scan a few for another post. These, my friends, are keepers.
