Thrift Store finds

These old checks are super!!! Love the age of them and look at that date! 1896!!

I had picked out 4 of them..he wanted 50cents each..but ended up getting them for free..he forgot to ring them up and said oh heck, you can have them...he had a huge stack of them..that's what I really wanted..but not at 50c each...(these were at a local antique mall)





Gooodwill was brimming with finds for me today!
Found some old books:


The copyright was '46 inside that Emily Post book..






This one was Home Bible studies..had to have it:


You don't see the ends marbled too often..plus there were great illustrations inside too..






I was on the hunt for an old bingo game, but found this instead:












When I saw the cover, I knew this would feed my letter addiction...

















Lo and behold..they are super fat and cute and a whole little box full of them!





It looked to be 60's or 70's and must have been in the closet for along time..it was all there..looking as good as new, except the box was a bit worn..but I don't want the box anyway..




This box, I had to get for the insides..but the box is cool too with the metal re-enforcements on the corners and the graphics were a plus too.





These old bobbers will be of some good use in a mixed media piece I'm sure..












HOpe your Labor Day weekend has been a good one!!


later gator~

Gee, Tee, that game is really groovy! And the checks are just beautiful. I found some cancelled checks from 1905 for about the same price. They are such special snippets of long ago. Such a cute necklace you've created! Lucky classgoers! Have a great week - Angela
