My grandmother always had this hanging in her kitchen - not a very politically correct item in these modern times, is it? - I've never seen one of these in a shop - it's a souvenir from Long Beach,CA - how it ended up in Prince Edward Island, I don't know..
This old croquet set has been around forever - I remember my grandfather won it on a punchboard - in the little store next door - does anybody remember a punchboard?
Dad had this neat old sign in the basement - don't know where that came from either.....
My old tin top has seen better days, I must have played with it a lot!! It was made in Germany.
Some neat old Christmas ornaments from home.... Mom used to get craft kits every month - the three in the back came from those..
My husband picked up these things - the checker box is neat but his favorite purchase was the Trap Shot Bagetelle game that he bought at an antique shop in Vermont - what a great old game!!! We love to play!! When you start looking for 6 inch rulers, they are very, very hard to find and sometimes really expensive - he has plans to make a frame with them.
I paid 60 cents for the retro vase. I found a piece of seaglass that was from the bottom of a Javex bottle - I don't remember when Javex was in a glass bottle - I found a bottle - paid $2. And this little ink bottle still had the ink in it, but that was just a mess waiting to happen so got rid of that. I bought this at the 70 mile yard sale - the seller had the price on tape, right across the front label -so that was pretty much the end of that- guess I shouldn't complain, only paid 25 cents.
I love to go through the books at Value Village - it's not very often that I will buy a new book - and you buy three books there, you get one free, it's a great deal!! I know there's 5 books there - got the Dessert Lovers cookbook for $1 at another shop.
If you're interested, I also blogged over at The Pyrex Collective about some nice Pyrex.
