Hubby is always on the look out for old things that have some value. It doesn’t really matter if they are primitive or antique, old or interesting. He loves a good find.
Recently he came across a find he couldn’t resist. It was lump sum lot….He took it all home and paid one lump price.
There were lots and lots of canning jars. Many of them were blue.
Many were highly scripted.
This is only a part of them.
He got quite a few things including this box….It’s all clocks. The big one in the box is really cool and intricate. I am so hoping he can put that together and it will work. I love it. I grew up with a mom that always had a coo-coo clock. I have long wanted one too.
He also got this old desk type thing….
and this cool wooden box with a glass jug inside. Does anyone know what the glass jug likely held? We had no idea and would love to know. Please leave a comment in the comment section if you have an idea of what it once held.
There was a box of old oil lamps…
..and old Underwood typewriter. It has a box of covers that go over the keys so that a person can learn to type without looking.
There was an old adding machine too.
This lamp we’ll like hang in the basement over a pool table if we ever get one. My dad had a pool table and I always loved that.
Hubby had a lot of fun with his haul. He really likes tinkering with old “junk”….I love that both are a little like that. I would hate to have a Hubby that didn’t tolerate or understand my “junking”! I also love that Hubby’s adventures often become my adventures too….about that coo-coo clock. There’s no way I’m letting him sell that!!
