Gathering for Vintage Marketpalce

Vintage Marketplace at our store is just over a week away,
and I have been busy, busy, busy gathering all sorts of treasures.
Look at these treasures.
Anyone know what the little book says??
I think it is Swedish.
Other item in pic is an old doorbell.
You have to turn the crank to make it 'ring'.
Old pencil sharpener, and 2 ink bottles.
just love the oldness of it all.
How many little kids have sharpened their
pencils on this one sharpener alone?

Oh another little old trunk.
It's about 9" wide.
cool old latch.

oops. sideways handle.And that strip of tin around the box is very different.
Inside, equally cool!
Another old sewing machine.
Hmmm. Is that 4 or 5 I have now?

Just love this end design.

And another old typewriter.
(this one is gone, but I have 3 others).

Blessings all
Have a super week.

Hey Barb!
The word "Salmebog" is danish for hymnal.:)
I cannot wait till next Saturday! It's going to be so fun!
Still fighting illness! Hubby has pneumonia now! :(
See you next week...

Why is it that all the old items of the past have so much more appeal than all the modern sleek things of today? Actually working to sharpen a pencil is so much more fun than using an electric one. Just like cranking an old ice cream machine makes the outcome just that more delicious! Best wishes to you, Tammy

Very cool door bell! Does it still "ring"?!
Have a great sale.

That old book is just great. Makes you wonder how many hands of held it and enjoyed the story inside. Great old pencil sharpner too.

Oooo, I love that typewriter! I can smell the pencils being sharpened on that pencil sharpener now. The electric ones hold all that scent inside.
