We went to an estate auction this weekend -- not very far from where we live actually. It was so much fun to look at all of the lots and easy to get caught up in the excitement and bid on crazy stuff (none of which I won -- thankfully!). However, I did get to bring home these great buttons. There are definitely some bakelite and other early plastics in there. I pulled out some of my favorites on left.
And here's one of the other green things I mentioned. I actually won 2 of these for the bargain price of $5 -- for both! I moved all the drawers filled with nails and screws and other crazy stuff into one cabinet and gave it to Pete and kept this one for myself. I figured it would be perfect for little crafty things and it's quite sturdy, being made of enameled metal.
More green tomorrow!
