Yes, there’s more! Janeray already showed you what she scooped up at the estate & barn sale we hit on the first day of the Sage Farm show.
Now it’s my turn!
I scored a homemade cash drawer, nicely made in pine but with odd numbers written in the compartments. Space for $3 and $4 bills? Maybe it was used for tokens or something else. Janeray thinks I should put it under my sewing machine to keep all the little tools right at hand. Might work. I’ll have to try it out. If it doesn’t work, then I’ll have to find some $4 bills.
I also scored a bagful of Rit and Tintex dyes, with their nifty vintage packaging. (Note to self: next time, don’t handle dye packages while wearing nice white shirt. Oops.)
And a pair of “famous” plastic-handled Ecko paring knives that were premiums with Tetley tea!
This wood-framed Milton Bradley Chinese checkers board was covered in grime. There’s a black & red checkerboard on the other side.
Anything metal? Why, yes. A vintage photographer’s light, meant to be fixed to a tripod. Love the cloth cord! It’ll make a great lamp.
And this streamline-looking Christmas tree stand in enameled steel and chrome. The sculptural qualities are appealing. I’d put a giant candle in it!
Oops! Looks like I didn’t get the ornament hangers to go along with the 11 boxes of Shiny Brites!
I’ll save them for you! The box has a couple metal ornament tops in it, too.
