Well, it's official, I am completely incapable of leaving an antique store without something made out of paper.....it's just a fact. The group of books above are so cool, they have an off-white sepia looking cover and leather spines.....just cool.
I'm showing this cigar box above that I bought online because of it's cool graphic...
Aren't these boxes fun? Just love them for storage in my studio, they have more character than any other kind of storage (in my book anyway :)).
Look at this cute vintage handwriting tablet, best friend may need this for an upcoming display window...we'll see.
This item above and below is very interesting...I asked the owner of Yankee Trader (Carrie) if she had any ledger books and she brought me this. It's obviously not a ledger but was so cool inside with all the flaps to hold cards. I haven't decided if I want it for postcards or to make an awesome shadow-box item out of it.....
Check out the little pad of rent receipts below with the cutest graphics ever!
The Tom Thumb cash register is adorable and still works, even though part of the drawer is missing, I can still hold little bits in it on my work desk....it's sitting on a great little file box with a really cool handle on it. Love these for storage too....
Last but certainly not least is what I found at Farmhouse Funk near Astoria, this cool celluloid Christmas photo album, broken clasp and all. It will be great to display unless I decide to sell it.
Thanks for checking out my fun finds, all but the last item came from the same store in Gearhart, Yankee Trader, so if you ever find yourself in that area you must check it out! Carrie is wonderful, you'll love her store!
