I was just lamenting that I hadn't been to any good sales lately -- none of the kind where you do the happy dance all the way to the car. I still haven't, but today's sales were a little better!
An Argus camera with full flash equipment & original box, plus more photos .
These are from the early 1950s and included Christmas and kiddie football pics.

One thing I was happy to find was a tall unit of 4 shutters (door-height) hinged together. I've been looking for shutters like this for over a year, because they're great for creating an instant wall in the booth. You can also turn them slats-facing-up and hang things on them with S hooks. These are perfect because they're painted a soft green that will look good with my booth walls. One of them is broken, but I don't care about that. I might even repair it...
Here are some of my fun finds:
|An old sled|
|A fifties stepped end table & a shabby red chair|
|Driving-range sized baskets|
|A framed cutwork & embroidered 'Welcome' motto|
|A silhouette jar and some sweet 1920s button on cards|
|A pyrex casserole, Moon & Stars compote and a Stetson 'Scots Clan' cream & sugar (sweet!)|
|STRANGE BUY OF THE DAY:|
This little golf bag holder with plastic golf club drink stirrers.
|BEST BUY OF THE DAY:|
A McCoy large jardiniere. It has a small (and short) hairline crack at the top. Other than that it's perfect!
|SECOND BEST BUY OF THE DAY:|
A wooden box with etched mirror and a bakelite knob
|FAVORITE BUY OF THE DAY:|
A pair of mid-century wall pockets with elves. Honestly, who would want to hang these on their walls and put plants in them?
