The loads are small and most go directly to my hidey hole space in the back of my booth.
Never entering the house.
I am hauling out far more than I am bringing in.
First up this green 45 RPM record box with records.
Haven't checked out the selection of tunes yet.
A clutch of test tubes.
Yes, project involved, but I promise it is a quick one!
Low on architectural items - found these muntins (window dividers)
A gray metal data file box with a leather handle - quite spy-like.
A brown leather suitcase.
A wood office letter box.
A small bucket.
An ironstone plate.
This poor lady is losing her veneer - will repair and paint her.
A stack of old new stock of shutters.
Wooden shutters are getting harder and harder to find at reasonable prices.
These have never been used.
I did clean some of the dirt off.
Left some for eye-appeal.
Only five volumes of the New Masters Pictorial Encyclopedia, but who could resist those covers!
Great line drawings inside.
A basket filled with -
A wire soap dish.
A boy and his dog cookie cutters.
An Audubon Field Guide For Birds.
A book for veterans.
Worlds to Explore - a Girl Scout Manual.
Checking out, the manager asked if I saw the box of crochet stuff.
Thinking she meant afghans, I was not really thrilled but looked anyway.
Oh, my word!
It was a box of vintage baby clothes intricately crocheted and never used.
No stains or foxing (brown spots).
This set a bonnet, coat, and booties - the edges have tatted silk lace.
This set a coat and booties.
A small dress.
With tiny white buttons on the other side.
I displayed it with the buttons on the front.
Most likely meant for the back - you wouldn't want tiny buttons where a baby might pick one for a snack.
Two white, pink and blue bonnets.
The last set was crocheted from pink silky thread.
There was a dress.
With tiny pink buttons.
And the matching coat and bonnet.
It took awhile to go through the box - everything was jumbled together.
I hope I was able to match all of the sets.
I did leave others behind.
