I did a little antiquing and thrift store shopping this week and made some fun finds! I'm always up for a day of treasure hunting! My husband Larry, and daughter Liana, were my partners- and it's always fun to spend time together doing something we love! We are always on the hunt for great old graphics, games, books- and those items we just can't live without! We found a great box of old dice- wonderful colors!- some great antique animal cards, some vintage party stunt cards, and the greatest old paint chart! Liana, as a visual artist, is always attracted to an item like that! We also found some wonderful little cast metal pieces- an elephant head, a dancing girl, an old skate key, and a binoculars charm- they were in a dollar box! I found some old games- I especially loved an old red metal skill ball game, which I will add to my my wall collection of old game boards. I also found a sweet old cow print and a wooden star bracket. Probably my favorite find this week was a rare antique Valentine's paper party hat! 15" high, it is made of crepe paper, lined in craft paper, and has fabulous graphics. Unfortunately, it has a couple of ink spots, but other than normal wear, is relatively undamaged. I have been unable to find anything info on anything like it- for $9, it was a steal! If any of you have any info about a piece like this, I'd love to hear from you! A day like this is always fun...can't wait to go again!
