New Treasures for the Store

 Had two fun days of shopping this last weekend,
so here are some of my treasures.
Above: 2 little children's wood chairs,
a watering can, rusty little shovel,
and 3 cameras.

Here is a close up of he cameras.
Love that one on the left. have never seen on like it before.

On the other chair are two cast iron toys,
an old pocket dictionary, a little typewriter pencil sharpener, and a little box of cards.
(Have not checked out what kind yet) =)
I like a mystery.

 a close up of the cards....
anyone know anything about them??

Here is a totally rusty and cool old camp stove, oven thingy.

 Here is the inside. Will be so cute for display.

  One can never have too many rusty old bird cages.....
 And this one has such a cute pattern on the plastic.

 Here are some other treasures:
Old washboard, brass scale, and 2 leaded glass cupboard doors.
These are really nice leaded glass, and heavy,
but I think I will paint the oak black, and scruff it up some.
It is just to newish looking for me.
What would you do with them??

 Here is a close up of the old nail bag from the last pic.

And here is the inside, all divided up into pockets for assorted nails.
Hmmm. What can we sue it for???

Have a great week everyone.
joining Knick of Time, and Coastal charm for their parties.

Love love that cute typewriter pencil sharpener! And the birdcage! I don't know anything about the cards, but if they're educational, social and entertaining, they must be awesome!

What a haul! I love everything! Great idea to paint the wood frames, maybe you can attach some old knobs and other hardware for hanging little treasures.

Hi Barb, I am interested in those cast iron cars. They would make a great gift for my brother. And it looks like I may be back down in June so no mailing! More on that later!
