I did find a few treasures, some for upcycling and some for craft supplies.
Best find of the day was this shabby chic "thing". I haven't a clue as to what it came from or what it was used for but I envisioned it holding Christmas ornaments in each arm. It is made of metal and quite heavy. What would you use it for?

Staying with the shabby chic theme, I found some metal candle holders. I also found this vintage wooden spool. Last large spool I found at a sale was priced at two for $25. This one was only 50 cents.
I bought a bag of feathers for craft projects. I wonder if the person who collected these feathers loved birds as much as I love my ducks.
I bought a bag full of fabric trim. These will be perfect for Christmas projects.
I found a box with these old Christmas lights. I don't know what I will do with them but they remind me of Christmas past. The last few craft items I found were a bag of wooden beads and two jars of odd wooden pieces that had been carved on a lathe. The beads are in some lovely Fall colors with the green beads in the shape of apples so I can see an Autumn project later this year.
