Yard Sale-ing Victoria Day Weekend

After bringing Aaron to market, I stopped at a yard sale on the way home. I passed by a number of them but wanted to go back out with Joshua later. We found a whole pile of Walter Foster painting books for a good deal, for Aaron.
As well we were able to get a number canvas boards some other boards, palettes and an old paint box. I also found a neat little tin lunch box.
The gentleman who's house had a sale was an avid photographer and had his own dark room.

Try as I might I have not been able to get this loaded in the upright position. Sorry. I picked up some old filters, coin holders, photos, glass feet and knobs etc. Not shown are tiny envelopes and aluminum slide holders. There is also a spool of old cotton covered wire.

An old box revealed an assortment of old Christmas ornaments and other goodies.

For only $1.75 you can design your own dream home, circa. 1945.
This needs a good cleaning off but it is a truly neat flour bin. Bulk flour indeed! It's three feet tall.
You can wrap your coins old school and impress your friends with easy "Social Entertainer Tricks," a bargain at only one penny originally.
These were one of the best finds for the day. A box full of old plaster letters ( there are little nails sticking out the back of each) and numbers for making signs. Too cool!! I will find some fresh board to stick them on the clean some of them up a bit and put some of them into the Milkhouse.
