We found some interesting items that can be used for various projects. I am remodeling my office space at work and had my eye out for items to use as vintage storage. I found three wire baskets, one to act as an in-basket and one will hold various scrapbooking papers.
I also found this vintage record holder that could also hold paperwork.
I love these tiny cork-topped glass vials filled with seed beads. They are only about an inch tall.
Stuff to Treasure store shortly.
This is a very retro Mid-Century Modern, patent leather, ice bucket by Georges Briard. It is in such great condition.
In a box buried in the corner of a room I found lots of old film and recording items. There were some old 8mm film reels, old metal Kodak film canisters and some old home recording records from the 1940s. One old records is labeled as "Jack Benny and Rochester".
That was the "thrifting" part of our day. Then we were off to the Long Beach Grand Prix. The weather was absolutely perfect in Long Beach although the cars were a bit noisy. The race is held on what is normally regular streets in downtown Long Beach. We watched the American Le Mans Series.
In the photo above you can just see the Queen Mary circled in the distance.
Viewing from turn 6
Above is the Long Beach Arena. The entire wall surrounding the building highlights various sea life and is the world's largest mural painted by Wyland.
It was a fun but exhausting day. I found lots of treasures and enjoyed a day at the races. I hope everyone had a good day thrifting.
