Here are my finds...
I found these three Honor Roll Pins made by the Whitehead & Hoag, Co. What a great embellishment for my Graphic 45 An ABC Primer collection. $1.00
One collapsible ruler, vintage...great idea from Connie for display. $5.00
1985 Calender. The circle photo actually changes when you guide the ribbon tab. I'm going to make this a one year mini-album of Little Honey. I can't wait to get started on this one. (valued from $10 to $18.95) $3.00
This is from the Henry Ford Museum, 1989. There are 24 cards. You pull them apart and are the size of postcards. I'm going to have a blast with this find. (valued from $2 to $59.58) $2.00
Johnson's Baby Powder Tin. It still has baby powder in the tin! It says the active ingredients are Talc and Boric Acid. Yikes! LOL The label is printed directly on the tin. If I'm careful not to damage the original, I'm going to alter this with Graphic 45's Little Darlings. (valued at $27.00 and up) $7.00
My Favorite Find and Mother's Day Gift from my husband!
I've been wanting a manual typewriter for the longest. When I found this one for a lot less than I expected to pay for one in such great shape I looked to husband with longing in my eyes..."please." Without question he knew how much I've been wanting one and said yes.
My research on the internet basically led me to believe it is a Royal KHM with a twist. Around 1934. I saw "similar" machines going for $1,200.00 to $1,600.00. This one is a bit more rare because of the middle section of keys toward the top of the keyboard. Then again another appraiser via internet said they would not pay above $120.00 for this style /year. Value is in the eye and heart of the beholder. LOL approx. $70.00
Overall, I don't think I did such a bad job. Now to spend the next few weeks playing with all of it.
Making Memories is our generous sponsor this month for our D's Paper Studio Challenge. I'm working on a fun project that involved a piece....but not jewelry...from their Vintage Groove III. I also conquered another tool while working with this project. So the tutorial I've been wanting to do is going to be done this weekend. I am being cryptic. If you want to know more and participate in the April Challenge go to this POST for details and a picture of the generous prize pack.
Have a Crafty Day!
