    xoxo, T.

  3. When I saw the Wheeler Mission stamp on that bible I knew it had spent a portion of it's life in my home state! Love LOVE that cash drawer. It would be a keeper for me.

    Sorry for your loss!


  4. Donna you do find the most interesting things. Love that red cash drawer! Sorry to hear of a death in your family. Sending hugs!!

  5. uh oh, did someone my age die?? I know a lot of that stuff. I had a racket with press on it. I want that book case with legs. I too like old children... I AM an old kid

  6. Great stuff Donna ... I love the old bottles ... old children's chairs ... and that old cash drawer. Does that make me old too? Too bad your shop is not in traveling distance to me.
    Sorry about the death in your family.

  7. Great stuff, my favorite is the cash register drawer!! So sorry to hear about your loss.


  8. That cash drawer is quite wonderful. Love that tiny New Testament. So sorry to hear about the death in your family.

  9. My sympathies, Donna, to you and the family.

    I was going to say how much I love vanity trays, but oh, my gosh, how I love that cash drawer! I wanted to make a comment about old children, but you beat me to that one! All wonderful goodies this week !

  10. Oh my! Where do I start wishing? The globe- I need to know how to globe also! (Noun vs. verb...It happens all the time, like Roller Blading, which should really be in-line skating!). Could those bottles be old bottles that held saline or blood for intravenous drips? I LOVE old children! Especially when they wear red leather high tops! What do people do with the old tennis rackets? I "need" the white bookshelf. Love the legs, too! And, the green trunk, especially because of the green, and it's a box, even though I can't see all of it, and did I mention it's green? I really do need a round vanity tray (because the oval ones can be found anywhere!) and the oil cans, although I don't know why. They're just neat! I could also use more old atlases. Maybe we can talk about those old language cards when you get your Etsy shop set up again. Love 'em! And the red cash register!!! Sweet! You've outdone yourself once again!

    We send our condolences to you and your family. Take care. Fonda (& Katie)

  11. Oh no! I'm sorry about the death in your family!

  12. Great finds Donna. The red cash drawers is my favorite but there are so many wonderful goodies here. Silly me, I thought globes were self explanatory.

  13. So sorry to hear of your loss. You are my favorite blog and you always find the nicest junk.
