A quick stop in a seldom shopped Thrift netted some vintage goodies today.
A nice bBIG vintage chalkboard, an old book, a nice pile of vintage clothespins with great patina, a vintage jump rope - the long kind that two kids turn and a globe missing it's base. I have found three globes in less than two weeks. The good ones went straight to the booth. This one didn't have it's base, so I pulled off the Equator like Super Woman and pulled it into two pieces. Now I can do something creative with it or glue it back together and throw it in the booth as is. Sometimes I have big ideas and then I gets lazy. :(
I also found a little sack of vintage Jacks (or is it Jax?)
I've been picking them up when I find them and throwing them in a jar. Now my jar is full! Does anyone have any ideas of anything to do with them? I looked on Pinterest, but I only saw one pair of earrings made out of some. (Uh, no thank you.)
I used to love to play Jacks. You could keep a set in your pocket and have instant entertainment at any time or place. Ah, the simpler times. Not like these whippersnappers now with their high falutin' techno-logical handheld video games ans what not.
*Anyone going to see Magic Mike? I suspect it is full of bad acting and a sorry plot line. But the stripper aspect outweighs all of that, huh? Hubba Hubba.
