This Week's Finds

We may be having snow showers here in Portland, but the estate sales are springing up like nobody's business! I found a few goodies this week. Let's have a look, shall we?

A 1958 Traffic Dictionary and a 1946 Encyclopedia

A gold 1970's filigree mirror fit for a princess. A tacky princess, but a princess nonetheless.

A black 1950's rotary phone. It works. I picked up the receiver at the sale and heard the dulcet sound of a dial tone.

This absolutely gorgeous treasure chest. On wheels!

I have seen those filigree mirrors painted solid colors and they really look modern. I love the rotary phone. Who would have ever thought that they would become collectible?

Isn't it exciting that the sales are starting up? It seems like the first of the season sales are the best. You certainly found some cool things.

Here's to a great junk hunting season!
