Friday and Saturday Plunder
My junking on Friday and Saturday wasn't re-letter but I was able to gather some plunder that made me happy. I hit the SST, Division Street Antiques plus one estate sale. It was advertised as a digger but really wasn't. I did come away with a nice button score and a big pile of embroidery floss.
The NOS pillow case set, glass apothecary, crochet napkin holder and 60s vase all came from a quick trip to the SST on my lunch hour Friday. I need to Google about Blenko glass and try to figure out if this is the real deal or not. Do any of you collect Blenko or know about it? It will be added to my DIL's colored glass collection.
The very crusty old typewriter and the keys are from Nina and Joe's (Division Street Antiques). It was a last chance purchase before they head east on their annual month-long buying trip. It is still sitting on my work table because it weighs about a MILLION pounds and must be made of lead. The keys are not frozen but it is in pretty rough shape but will still make an interesting display piece. For $6 it can be a doorstop!
A few little bits picked out of the button sack. The napkin holder was brown from age but some Oxy worked it's magic and it is ready to add to someone's blue cottage kitchen..
I have so many keys already and it is time to start passing them along. There are some really neat shapes in this batch..
There are some great buttons in this lot and I promise I will not forget to photography my favorites before I put them away this time.
I was delighted that these buttons were clean and had very few strings. Clearly a button-saver who respected the buttons. A woman by my own heart!
I went out again today but that will be another post. I really need to put myself in time-out until I get some of this stuff listed!!
