Digger Box of Treasures

I took a day off from work this past Friday to prepare for a mini-trip out of town. But before our trip could begin we needed to hit a couple of local Friday sales first. By the time we got done with the sales it was almost time to hit the road for our trip. This is the reason I was able to just share a teaser photo of the box of treasures. Well, here are the detailed photos of what we found.

My favorite find were these three glass, baby vanity jars. I love the illustrations on the jars. The images are of a cat, dog and rabbit. The lid handles look like they are from the Art Deco era.
Keeping with the Art Deco theme, we found these three vintage scarf clips. I love their style. I have to do some research to see how they were actually worn.
This hand mirror is probably from the same period as well.
We also found some vintage household items. First, an old, chippy, baby scale with cute illustrations on the face.
Two Westclock clocks; one is a Big Ben and one is a Baby Ben. I love the industrial look of the Baby Ben clock. Both clocks are sturdy metal.

A couple of old galvanized cans with spouts. Can't you picture these filled with flowers!
I think this is an old hub cap/cover for Essex Motors, Detroit.
I found an odd "bracelet" that someone had sewn on old metal buttons.
This is a vintage Boy Scouts of America metal First Aid Kit.
And I found a nice stack of wooden cigar boxes. The one on the bottom is designed to look like a book. The two red ones on the top each hold a single cigar with a clear hinged lid. There must be some interesting project I could use these for.
This is a lot of household stuff but I haven't even gotten to the decorative items yet.
One seller gave me this old antler for free. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this but I just liked it.
I added this Avon bottle to my resting deer collection.
We found three ceramic figurines all marked "Japan". I'm not a big fan of clowns but this one looked so old and has real lace at the neck and hands. Plus the face is very cute and happy.
I like old dog figurines. I found this German Shepherd. It is marked Made in Japan on the bottom.
Well, that's it from the Digger Box of Treaures. I will start adding items to my Stuff to Treasure store as soon as possible. I've also started a Facebook page to keep people informed when new items are added to my store. I haven't had a chance to do much with it yet but I'm working on getting everything coordinated.

I hope everyone had a fun thrifting weekend.

  2. Wow, what amazing finds! I love the baby vanity jars, I have a old set of three but they are no where close to being as cute as yours!

  3. I had that deer avon bottle when I was a kid - likely around 1977-79 ish. Those glass deco bottles are great.

  4. The art deco clips could be shoe clips or sweater clips minus the chain. so pretty in either case. Laura
