Just a few finds - still sticking with my resolve to find items for a quick turnaround.
A gnome with a carrot to sit under your Christmas tree.
Really it was the first thing I thought when I spied him.
Another Brown Bag cookie mold.
I plan to list several on Etsy.
An Irish cream pitcher with delightful brown crazing.
I found bunches of old photos this past week.
Two small gold frames.
This photo album - so brittle it fell into pieces when I took the rubber bands off it.
The first page is a drawing of their new home.
Lots of photos of couples - these in front of military barracks.
I love group photos.
Dated 1940 but not sure what club.
At Riverfront I found a bag of old photos.
Two of my favorites.
The baby is so bundled she can hardly sit in the chair much less bend her knees.
This family photo reminds me of my grandparents' family photos - oodles of children!
Most of this bunch had been removed from an album, and some person carefully typed whatever information she could find about the people in the photo.
See how the black of the album page has remained where the glue was applied?
I have had some success gently sanding with extra fine paper or sponge to remove the black.
A sturdy industrial look desk.
An English toffee tin.
A lovely round biscuit tin.
It is a Nabisco tin from South America - made in Mexico.
It will be on Etsy soon.
I have a request from an Etsy customer to find cricket boxes.
I found several last week and a few more this week.
I dumped the flowers from this one.
The customer is looking for the biggest one I can find. With my friend Judy at Riverfront Antique Mall this behemoth of a cricket box will be going on Etsy if the customer does not approve.
It has lost its feet.
But the huge size makes up for that.
A chalkware of a mother and child.
I think it is perfect for Christmas.
Last I dropped a few bucks to purchase a bunch of plastic letters in black.
I was thrilled when Kathy sent them wrapped in an old Red Goose Shoes bag with various old ephemera added.
Including an old J.M. Barrie card - can you see him peeking out?

I think I will go catch some Z's myself.
PS It's the thirteenth and my photos refuse to stay in the right place on the page. If this post looks wonky, blame it on gremlins.
