But I did found out about my old watch...It's from the 20's not the 40's like I thought. My beau was right and he pulled a I'm right and your wrong happy dance..was kinda funny..but I got him with it not being gold..it is gold plated..he swore to me it was gold..it isn't..so I guess we evened out on the watch.
So was at an antique dealer asked him if he would be interested in it. He said we could get $25. So I decided to keep it. It will make its debut in the printer tray. I would have sold it for $50..but since it isn't worth that much. I will keep it. Was a great unexpected find.
I have 54 pen nibs..they were $6. This will be for scrapbooking..how fun is that.
Not sure when it is from. 30's maybe 40's haven't really researched it yet. And my reasoning for believing it is that old is what I found inside.
Lots of treasures were found this weekend. Not a lot of money spent either I think $40 in total. We have decided on a couple items that we are on the hunt for to add to the tray..not just random like we have been doing.
- green army guys.
- a thimble..but a really cool odd design thimble.
- car parts. a spark plug..oh I saw a spark plug turned into a toy car on weekend. was very cute..
and that is it for must find and leave space for.
This is a ole carpenters pencil I think.
I am so not going to get anymore wade figurines. But the monkey's were necessary. I had the chimp one when I was a kid, and the beau loves monkeys..
And this was bought for me. I think its a great find..we are thinking 50's or 60's on the badge. Very heavy pin. It is metal too.
