Welcome! Mister and I went to the semi-annual auction of our favorite thrift store. I got lots of "good stuff cheap"!
We bid on this box of old rotary dial telephones for a friend who is a serious phone collector. Nobody else wanted them, so we stole them for $2.00. I'd love the red one!
Two knee huggers, a Santa (made in Japan), and a ceramic bird salt shaker.
Some wonderful vintage hankies ~ one with a "K" for my Katherine!
This is, I believe, a child's suitcase. It measures 10-1/2" x 14" x 5-3/4", and has a cool faux snakeskin pattern on it. The metal tag says "Shortrip" and it was stuffed with doll clothes and accessories, of which I'll have to sort through. I love old cases - they're great for storage!
This is my favorite item, that I got for $4.00. A 1947 little portable sewing kit. It is sooooooo cute! Awesome bright, bold graphics that I love. It's in very good condition, especially since it's 64 years old! (Hmmm, reminds me of a Beatles song!)
I wish it still had the scissors, but beggars can't be choosers. There's some fabric scraps under the cardboard that someone was practicing on - looks like 70's type fabric.
Here's Betty! She comes with the case, so I assume you got to make doll clothes with this kit.
That's all I'll show you today. I have more reds from this auction that I'll show next week, and some pretty figurines and stuff that I'll show you in between!
