Oh, the stories this little suitcase could tell!

Loaded up with wonderful travel decals including the passenger's name and address out of New Jersey. She has a sticker for the Drottningholm. This ship was used during WWI as a transport ship and was sold in 1920 to Swedish American Liners. The top of the suitcase has become detached from the bottom, but a lovely display piece! SOLD!

Tin egg carrier

Wonderful tin egg carrier has plenty of character, and was well used! Carried 36 eggs at a time. Measures 13 by 7 inches.

Wooden glue bucket

Love these little glue buckets. Nice and crusty inside, has paper label on front. This one measures 8 inches tall and has a diameter of 6 inches. SOLD!

Torsion balance scale

As most of you know, I just love scales of all sizes, styles, and shapes! This one is patent dated late 1890's. Most likely used in a pharmacy. Measures 11-1/2 by 5 inches and stands 6-1/2 inches tall. No breaks in glass. Has both little scale pans too! SOLD!

Wicker and wood hamper

Love the look of this with it's green band around the top edge. Wooden cover with knob. Measures 25 inches tall and is 17 inches wide by 11 inches front to back.In pretty good condition except for one small break near top. SOLD!

Children's fishing poles

Bought these for Bettie B's display and they didn't sell! They were one of my favorite finds for the camper. Well, now they will be available in the store. Great display, or they could still be used for fishing! One is 28 inches long and the other is 24 inches. Smaller one is SOLD!

Great little wooden arrows!

For all you painters and crafters! Wooden arrows would be perfect repainted as a sign. Just imagine the cool directional signs you could make. I have 12, $1.00 each. They have one smooth side and one side with design. Even those would be pretty painted up. They measure 13 inches long, and are 3 inches wide. Seven left!

Our newest fun pastime!

Many of you who follow my store on facebook have seen posts about our little vintage camper, a circa 1962 BeeLine, we have named her Bettie B. Lyn Kells and I are taking her to The Vintage Bazaar in Salisbury on June 22nd and 23rd. She will be surrounded by camp goods that we will be selling. A week or so ago, my husband found a second little camper. This one is a 1968 Shasta, (we think!) Once we are done fixing up Bettie inside and making her pretty, we plan to get started on a makeover for this newest one. We think we will call her Brigitte. She is pretty manly right now with dark greens and browns, but we want to give her a makeover. Anyway, the kids were having a campfire tonight and she looked like she was at a campsite, so I had to take a few pictures and share!
