On the right is the nice sewing basket that I gave a preview of yesterday. I will list it for $15. I thought the galvanized carry-all was pretty neat, so I brought it home for $1.
A few odds and ends of kitchen stuff–coffee tins, a timer (for daughter Gracie), another grater, and two carbon steel knives with ultra thin, sharp blades that slice through sweet breads and cakes like you can’t believe. I love them.
The tin on the bottom is a bit older than the one on top. The orange and aqua look pretty amazing together. I think they would make great planters, maybe with herbs growing in them. They will go for about $10 each.
I don’t usually show the items I buy for crafting or art projects, but I thought you might be interested in seeing a few. I buy old music books to make the thank-you tags that I include in all my Etsy orders. I always buy vintage glass paper weights because I can insert vintage photos or some small art project and have an instant paper weight. The wooden game pieces (from the game Ginasta) are new to me. After we play it a few times, I’ll probably sell the 52 tiles for $15 or so. They’d be great for jewelry projects, wouldn’t they?
I “revealed” the purple tin yesterday in my preview. It’s a smaller version of a very popular vintage candy tin. I’ve got the larger one, too; maybe I should list them together? I bought the hand for our family room and my daughter noticed right away and said how much she liked it(!). The antique mirror has three little feet that allow it to sit nicely on a dresser. The surface is nicely aged, don’t you think? After a little cleaning, I’ll list it for about $30.
I bought another bread board to add to the pile that I’m planning to stencil some day. The scale’s in rough shape, but should clean up pretty well. I sold one in slightly better condition recently for $35. I think the spoons might be from Africa; with a mineral oil rub down, the wood should be restored nicely.
This full-size chenille bed spread was another preview item from yesterday. It’s in perfect condition and I just love the colors.
