The Sagamore Bridge was under construction for the month of April and traffic was a complete gridlocked nightmare. So trips into Sandwich had to be brief, at best, in order to get back on the other side of the Canal before it got worse. However, we were leaving town and I saw an 'Antique Show & Sale' sign and pointed it out, so my trusty chauffer followed the arrow and we ended up at the Sandwich Legion. I didn't have high hopes for this but the pull to possibly find a treasure was too great.
I went to the first table and I saw so much stuff!!!! I bought a bunch of little trinkets for altered art. Found this Coke bottle, which has been treated to be that colour, but it's still pretty old and heavy. My stepson collects Coke stuff so we got it for him.
I am a sucker for watch faces and parts. The woman was selling them for a dollar apiece. I was having trouble selecting what I wanted when Russell cut to the chase and asked how much for the whole box. She said $20 and I got it.
Got incredible deals on 2 large jars of beach glass.
After I got home I pawed through one of them just in case there was anything rare and BAM! There it was. A huge piece of red. The rarest of the rare. I was legit flipping out.
As we were leaving, I spied this printer tray....something I have wanted for AGES. I've looked into them before and couldn't find one that I could afford that had a great variety of spaces and was really old. I tentatively asked how much and was told $15. SOLD!
Such a sucker for Moroccan style lanterns. This is contemporary of course but the price was right.
Velvet pouch with a set of jacks.
I also found this wooden slat box that had old sewing notions in them so I used that to carry around the rest of my trinkets that I picked up here and there. I like how the black & white looks cause it kind of reminds me of Jem & Scout's cigar box full of the stuff Boo Radley left for them in the tree.
And the colour version which shows detail of all the amazing bits and bobs!
I've already made the printer tray project and will feature that next. I am in love with how it came out.
