Vintage Find Sunday

This Vintage Find Sunday I share with you my purchases from the Antiques Spectacular Show. I would have loved to purchased a Hoosier cabinet or over-sized Jane photo, but my budget doesn't stretch that far. Instead I picked up smaller items - a wooden lever, vintage mailbox #55 cover, metal address/card catalog, and a glass jar.

Old P.O. Box cover with combination lock and wooden lever. I was instantly attracted to the details and obscure nature of the mailbox cover. Where is the other numbers?!

Detail of glass jar and metal card catalog. I have several old jars I use for storage on my desk, and I needed to replace one that broke - so I was lucky to find a similar jar. The card catalog may have been used for addresses or business cards because it is fairly small. But, makes a wonderful drawer for sewing notions.

What did you find this weekend?

I love the card catalog! I have one sitting in my parent's basement, just waiting on me to find a place for it. That's a great piece, small and compact...perfect for little objects!
