I allowed myself a little trip inside and guess what?
Vintage sheets: pretty slim pickings.
(I think the word is out on this one because they are definitely getting more scarce.)
But I did come across some treasures – not all vintage, but definitely worth it.And all pretty random and different from what I usually look for,
but diamonds in the rough, nonetheless.
(It was during preschool time, so I had some time to actually look, un-whined-at.)
First of all this silver dish on a pedestal. It was pretty tarnished and unassuming,
but I figured for $3 it would be worth a shot at polishing.
Plus, after my iron saga last year, I figured having a back-up iron
was probably not a bad idea. And guess what, works great!
This collection was my favorite 16 years ago. I would listen to these CD’s all the time and by an amazing fluke, even sat on the center front row of JT’s concert that summer at an outdoor amphitheater in Park City, UT – they just happened to release the VIP tickets right as I went to purchase my general admission ticket! So James and I are old friends. We share the same birthday. (He even gave me a personal thumbs up during the concert! I know.) So anyway, while I was away in England for 18 months my sister loaned a boy she liked one of the CD’s and he never gave it back! So there it was, half a CD collection with my long missing CD inside. Just waiting for me. All these years later. Makes you kind of veclempt, doesn’t it?
This old Samsonite suitcase. I debated about this one, even leaving it and coming back later.
I figured for a few bucks, it would be worth using in some decorative fashion.
Turns out the exact same ones are selling for $80 on Ebay! Score.
and I tried Googling it, but didn’t come up with a lot of conclusive evidence.
Please weigh-in if you have any insights.
