5/25/18 Antique photo album find!

My most recent acquisition from a local auction is this photo album. U.S. Army Clarence A. McMullen’s trip around the world on U.S. Army Transport Heffron in 1920. And various others. Many USS and USAT ship photos. My favorite part is all the photographs have brief description, locations and dated backs. Old photographs are truly something special.

Been neglecting my blog but I will be updating more often now.

06/06/2015 Yard Sale Finds

I purchased some great vintage items this week at an estate sale and a moving sale. What I love about doing what I do is you never know what you will find or where you will find it. It keeps things interesting and it’s never boring.

 These are really cool 1950’s leather combat boots. Gotta love the look of these and especially the wear. I found these in the way back of a closet full of clothes. It pays to dig at contents sales!  
This is an old hand painted metal sign, really cool patina to it which is hard to tell by the glare from the flash.

  

Below is what I love about estate sales. This is an entire family’s photos way back to the tin ones up to the 1980s. I always buy this stuff when I see it because I enjoy having them. Sad as it is that no one wanted these photos, I’m happy to be the one to save them from the trash. Also included in this box of memories was every single congratulations letter from his various promotions the man of the house received in his lifelong career at The Pennsylvania Railroad. Very cool!

1/31/2015 Yard Sale Finds

Estate sale!!! This was a fun one 🙂 My dad and I went about 30-45 minutes earlier than opening. We were numbers 8 and 9. By the time it opened up there were 25 more people. Even at 8 and 9 I think we got some of the best stuff. We split up and made a pile and make sure you not only mark your stuff sold you guard it or have an employee guard it. While I was awaiting a total I chased off 7 people from going through my pile that had SOLD stickers all over everything.  Check out pictures of the estate sale below and some of my finds:)
