I couldn't sleep last night knowing that I had only scratched the surface of the honey hole and that the trucks were pulling in today to clean out the house. I made a quick trip back this morning and found a few more little goodies:
Yummy vintage fabrics and linens. I knew I just had to dig a little deeper!
A huge bin full of vintage crochet goodies - including about 6 or 7 collars for garments.
Vintage metal toy trucks - including a 60s Disneyland Jeep. Looks like the TRU Scale tractor plow implement (in red) might be worth a few bucks. It will be interesting to see what it fetches on eBay this week.
A cute little hand-made red wagon toy and a nice old rain gauge advertising piece in it's original box. I also found another show box of vintage costume jewelry with a pretty glass cameo brooch.
An old Jem Junior camera in it's original box and another fishing reel ... The pipe reminded me of my Dad (I took it as a sign that he was with me enjoying every minute of the hunt).
Some old Golden books...
Two tin flip lid boxes filled with children's books, a big brass slide trombone (thanks Donna in CO) and a Triumphant Service Songs music book (I wonder if Tom remembers how to play?)
And... for my sewing room... an extra spacious, oh *sew* retro ironing board in the most fab shade of turquoise! By now, the trucks are pulling away with all the rest of the contents from this estate. I am glad I was able to preserve a few cuties and can't wait to start redecorating!
