I hit a few garage sales and one estate sale Saturday morning between chores, and here's the haul. The Howdy Doody glass is from 1953!
A baggie full of vintage sewing notions.
Very cool divided bowl. Nice color too.
A 1950 Santa Claus tray puzzle, a children's record-- also from 1950, and a few books.
Here is the back of the record sleeve. Cute, eh? The girl in the iris is keeping out of the rain.
A former owner wrote this inside the Nancy Drew book. Do you see the irony?
Pictured in the top photo, the typing book has this nifty illustration. By the way, the book was published in 1942.
Also in the typing book: finger gymnastics. I didn't realize typing was considered a sport.
A very cute and practical plastic storage box. Also a pretty turquoise, it looks a little washed out here.
And how about this? It was in with the sewing notions. An old card of snaps in pieces. I wonder what in the world happened to it? Too bad too as the image was very nice. I might glue it to a board to make some sort of collage.
Amazing the little treasures out there! Thanks for reading!
