I do occasionally make things...really

This blog was created mainly as a fun record of things I find and what I do with them.  Seems lately I'm scoring lots of loot, but not doing much creating. 

Earlier this month we saw a press release for the grand opening of an antique mall in a small town south of OKC.  It sounded pretty great but in actuality wasn't much as antique malls go.  However...there were probably 30 boxes of what probably came out of someone's attic or storage building.  I had the best time digging through them, and actually had to make a couple of trips to drop things at the counter as I couldn't hold it all.  This pic shows just a part of what I got - old photos, old letters and documents from the early 1900s to the 50s, sheet music, buttons, apron patterns, crocheted lace, old hangers that are great for display purposes - and so much more!  None of it was priced so I was a little concerned when it was time to pay, but the grand total was (drumroll)  $20!  We next went to an antique mall in Norman, where I found an amazing 1924 Tulsa High School yearbook, lace, a cute vintage hat and more.  It was a junque-seeking bonanza of a day!
