The first estate sale of the year for me-- a pretty packed house and basement, but I didn't walk away with too much. A set of cups, four mice, a small frame, two flower frogs, a folding yardstick, and two books. The zebra covered book is a 1974 Brookfield Zoo guide and the red cover is a Rudyard Kipling poetry book.
The mice on the left are rubber. My grandmother had a couple critters very similar to these on her kitchen window sill for years; unfortunately they sort of fell apart, but these mice sure took me back when I saw them. The two on the left were made in Sweden and are wood. Food/cheese picks, I'd say.
Some vintage Christmas cards with neat designs. Also two small stockings still on the original card.
Let's look at those 1974 zoo admission prices-- parking, one dollar; adults, one dollar; children under 15, free with an adult. Okay-- what about today's prices??? Parking, ten dollars; adults, 16.95; children 3-11 years old, 11.95. Gulp.
Thanks for stopping by!
