My most enjoyable purchase this past week has to be a collection of over three hundred vintage postcards.
I sat for a couple of hours reading the messages.
I offer vintage postcards on Etsy and have them in my booth at Riverfront Antique Mall.
My favorite find is this vintage faux crocodile train case.
I was so excited about it, I forgot to at least dust it before showing you.
The inside is complete and in good shape.
Except for the dirt.
Dresner Original Luggage - Chicago.
A leather briefcase and a wood recipe box.
An unusual purchase for me - a bunch of plastic grapes.
However, someone took the time to paint them gold and then apply a crackled white finish to them.
I will use them for display in the booth.
I am in need of some raw materials to use in projects.
Yes, Horror Monster has slimmed down a bit.
Two large drawers.
Four medium drawers.
Three graduated cabinet doors.
All of these are destined to be painted and become something besides drawers and doors.
Just as soon as I finish all the projects in line in front of them.
A cutlery drawer - always a good seller.
Some banister brackets in brass and drawer handles.
I bought the brackets thinking they were hooks. When I got home, I was sitting on the stairs trying to figure out what they were. Turned my head - yes, we have a whole stairwell of them.
I am currently working on this small dresser.
The only reason it was left at the thrift I am sure is no one noticed it is not what is seems.
Officially the cutest items found this week are the four block quilt top of vintage printed fabric ...
And the adorable straw baby clogs.
This weekend is the biggest yard sale event in the county for the year. Too many sales to even count.
Will I be out hunting?
NO! My cousin is getting married.
How could she!?!
PS I am attempting to take new items to Booth W-10 every three days. Come visit.
