Treasures from the Little Prince

Yesterday, I reported on the frog-sale and promised pictures of the things I got from the fun yard sale that followed.  Here they are!
A collection of Civil War bullets and a button or two -- now I have something new to research!.
A pair of Holt Howard mouse salt and peppers and some other fun plastic shakers.  Penguins seem to be very hot right now.
Some cool flash cards -- some with illustrations
Asian pictures -- in need of a good cleaning!  The pictures are okay, but I really liked the red mats and white box frames (so mid-century)
A 1960s chinese checkers game.  A regular checker board is on the back
This enamelware double boiler is in GREAT shape!
An old desk lamp -- also in need of cleaning.  It doesn't work (though they told me it did) and I don't know if I'll have to rewire it or just replace the fluorescent bulb
Some cool old snack/lunch trays
An OLD Pepsi bottle and some paperweights. The pink bowl has a chip, so the seller threw it in for free. I really like the mid-century look of it, though
This is a short post and the pictures aren't great, but I've been really rushed!  We're going to a week-long conference where there will be lots of meetings and dinners (which means lots of wardrobe changes) and I've been letting my junking get in the way of my laundry and packing!  It's time to get to work.

 I went to Greenmead Flea Market today and brought home LOTS of vintage goodies.  I spent most of the afternoon sorting and finding basement space for all of it. That's a story for another day...

I hope you all had a great thrifting weekend!

That's a great old game board!

Mom had that very same double boiler, I never liked the feel of it!!!
