More about the Sale Treasures

Last post I showed you the things from
my friends' sale.  Now lets take a closer look at some of the treasures.

This game is one of my favorite finds.
However, it presents a dilemma.  I have a
collection of the letters and a collection
of the timers.  So, do I take the game apart
and add to the collections, or leave the
game in one piece.  Any suggestions?? 

These were my next favorite things.  I am
guessing they were some sort of game pieces
or poker chips.  I got them because I already
have a collection. 

Yes, another collection with a place to put
them.  I am sad that a while back I sold a
yellow holder just like these.  What was I
thinking??   Well, that was before I had
anything to put in it.

And here I have started to sort through the
many little cards.  I love to sort things.
There are so many fun little pictures on
these many cards, and cards with words, and
cards that teach you Spanish.  I do have a plan
for all of these goodies.  Let's hope I follow

Sale Treasures

Two of my friends cleared out
their studios and had a sale last weekend.
This is what came home with me. 

I find it difficult to resist little things
in bags.  Especially when they are
very inexpensive.  These two gals really
wanted to clear out their stuff for cheap!! 

Once the bags are opened, the fun begins.
You can see there are all kinds of
ephemera, little plastic boxes, millinery,
fun "little" things.

The ephemera included various cards,
some letters, pictures, and what have
you, as you can see in this photo and
the next one. 

The Scribbage game is very cool.  I
collect little plastic boxes and you
can see there are many.  There was
a full little bag of cocktail umbrellas
which still had their Made In Japan labels. 

Here you can see some of the millinery.
My next post will show more details.
