I was busy in the office on Saturday but managed a quick trip to The Bins on my way home and my usual pilgrimage to the VOA this morning and found a few treasures. One of the things I always seem to find at The Bins are wood pictures frames. There, my tip for the local junkers! The cardboard chest will get a wallpaper make-over.
I was delighted when I spotted this nativity, in the original box, at the VOA. The other side of the box is pretty damaged but it did it's job and protected the nativity scene, which is perfect.
These Hummel-like candles were also found at the VOA. There are no markings on them so I looked on line and some say Japan and others say Hong Kong. No matter, they are adorable.
The big glass jar, the doll hat and the dish are also from the VOA.
The paper dolls are from The Bins and I could only find one doll. They are Abraham Lincoln and his family by Tom Tierney. Dang, I would love to have found the Abraham Lincoln paper doll!
And who would I find peeking up at me from a bin but Annie! She looks factory-made but I haven't found any marking or tags on her. I need to take off the clothes and see if there is anything inside.
I hope you all had a "junky" weekend!
