Thrifting finds of Friday

I found this vintage manual type writer. I was thinking of someone else when I bought this and now I am feeling like I should just keep it and play with it and use it for altered art projects and display purposes. I dunno. Maybe. You know I saw some ribbon in another thrift store. I wonder if it compatible? I really love the style of this machine. And I love hearing the clicking noses as I type on it.



I have no idea why I purchased this. But you never see them and it could come in handy. I worked in enough retail places to inform you this is called a till. Its the part that comes in and out of the register. Where you place your cash and coins. Display ideas are not coming to mind but maybe they will.
1960's Time life Encyclopedias with oodles of vintage photos. This set just showcases what times were like in each era. One book will contain 1800's & 1900's then go to 1910 &1920 and then 1930&1940 etc. They show what was in fashion in those Era's, samples of newspapers, ads hair styles, war information, etc. Lots of good reading here for sure. I think I might use them in altered art projects not sure yet.2 fire king mugs. Yipee. You know they were each .49 cents. I know! But they wrote in red marker on each mug. Lucky for me I was able to get that off with some nail polish remover and a Q-tip.
Ya know I was screaming inside when I found this vintage Polaroid film. I know you can still buy this film on Amazon.com but its so expensive still. I have 4 cameras to test this out with. Yipee!!
I found another care bear sheet. The flat again.
I found this very pretty orange and yellow daisy vintage sheet. Full Size
I found these Mod vintage pillowcase shams STILL in the packaging.
I found these misc. oyster forks. Or seafood forks really. Why is that celluloid? YES yes they are! The forks on the left bottom are from Germany and need to be polished. By golly they are real silver!
Plastic celluloid Florida forks
