Fabulous Finds

Cute lil' tins
Old projector - I really need to stop buying these!

A cool old ammo case - anyone know how to get permanent marker off?

Old book from 1878 or something like that

Book form early 1900's

This isn't that old, but I remember these and had to get it!

Really neat hangers

This cost 10 cents and I have some ideas for it

Anyone ever seen anti-monopoly before?

I'm currently working on this project. I sanded and stained it and scratched off the paint. I plan to have it for pastries or anything really.

Isn't this neat? I had to fix it, the whole top was messed up so I scraped all the paper off and sanded it, then painted it white. I had to glue on a lot of the wallpaper but here it is! I think it is super cute! $5

Here is the inside...

A cool vintage fan, not sure how old it is

Another angle

What possessed me to buy this? Its the grill of a Mercedes benz....I have some ideas possibly, but it was neat

Another cool, vintage washboard...

Just a neat piece of luggage or briefcase...

I had to get this. I love tortillas and just wanted it!

Tiny stool, really not sure what I'm going to do with it. But don't you see the potential?

And last but not least - the bottom is a really old photo book, and two books from the late 1800's and early 1900's!

Some Before and Afters - And A Few Finds

Ok, so, you can't really tell how bad the chair looks, but it needs a new fresh of paint and the material needs to be changed out. There are stains that you can't really see in this picture.
 Here is the after. I chose new material....And the paint I bought actually ended up being the same color. I was going to do dark brown but because of the material I chose I wasn't sure brown paint all over the chair would have worked...

Do you see the potential in this chair?

Well here is after I re-did it. This is the only material I currently have (I need to start stocking up), but this would probably look better with less business going on! The material is easy to change out. This "material" is actually from a little girls dress, but hey, whatever works.

Super faded, but only a $1 and still awesome.

A couple more avon bottles.

Vintage game.

Aren't these cute? I spray painted both of them black and they will make for some super cute decor.

Vintage owls!

Fun vintage cookie cutters

Not sure what ill do with this yet...

Washboard, unfortunately cracked...

Old books!

An awesome, old projector that still works!
