I am doing my part on Earth Day to keep stuff out of the landfill.
Take a look at this....
My dad took me to a junk sale today and it was "Box Day"...they had cardboard boxes sitting around with prices marked on the side. Everything you can fit in the box for whatever price was marked on the box!!!!!!!!!
I got both of these boxes ~ which are neatly packed to fit more in ~ for $10.00!!!! A freakin gold mine of ephemera, crafty goodness! All sorts of paper ephemera, vintage sheet music, vintage Good Housekeeping, Look magazines, etc. from the 40's, 50's & 60's. Several old dictionaries and foreign language books, old games & game boards, glass bottles, plaques, stuff to alter, etc.
I found these way cool glass cigar box covers...I guess the cigar stores used to open the box, slide these covers on over the lid and exposed yet protected the cigars!! There are 5 of them but only 2 still have the writing on them.
This box full of very old jingle bells...(not to mention the awesome cardboard box they are in!)
Just all sorts of goodness...
They do this every 5-6 weeks!!!!!!!! I am sooooooo going back! It's pack rat heaven....lol!!!
You want to know the kicker...the guy said if it didn't sell by the weekend he was going to burn, trash or donate to Goodwill what was left!!!!!!! NO!!!!! I about passed out...Hence the two boxes - LOL!!!
