My Big Old Box

I hadn't planned on stopping at the Thrift store yesterday but I was so glad I did.

I ended up coming home with this wonderful old box.

It has worn leather all around the edges.

Old labels....

leather handles on each side...

and someone's initials stamped on the top.

The inside of the box reads, Portmanteau Hat & Suit Case Manufacturers Repairs.

I love it!

I think it's a keeper!

The weather is beautiful here in the Pacific Northwest.

I couldn't resist bringing in a touch of Spring.

The Christmas Angel

Within the past couple of weeks I've gathered up Vintage Italian Nativity pieces from local Thrift stores in the area.

Being there have been issues with each set I decided to take the good pieces and divide them up in groups and sell them.

Hopefully someone missing a particular piece in there collection may find what they need in these groupings.

There was one piece I couldn't part with,the angel, the colors were so nice.

The angel has to stay with me.

It may have to stay out all year.

A Little Unusual

On Friday I hit an estate sale that sounded pretty good.

I didn't know what I'd find but it looked like there was a lot of stuff.

I headed first to the outbuildings.

The first thing I spotted was a wood box of face molds.

Clearly they had not been taken care of as dust and dirt had collected on them.

I had never seen anything like it before.

Each one of them were different and had the individuals name on them.

So, I brought them home, cleaned them up and packaged them.

Since Halloween is right around the corner I took them to the shop to sell.

A little unusual but it's fun to pick up "unusual" sometimes.
