Awesome Labor Day Weekend Digger Sale

We found an awesome digger sale that looked promising. It was a bit of a drive but since we hadn't been out for a while we decided to splurge.

My favorite find, and I have to credit Dear Handyman for snagging this treasure, was this small 7 1/2 inch metal globe. I collect globes but I didn't realize the significance of this one particular one. In fact, while waiting to pay, two people offered to buy it from me. With a little research I discovered that small globes like this are a little scarce so they are more valuable. A great addition to my collection!
I found this old green Climax Family Scale by Landers, Frary & Clark. The glass front is intact and it still works.
Found a three piece canister set in the same shade of 1940's green.
I have never seen an anodized aluminum salad serving set before so this was kind of fun. There is a large serving bowl and eight colorful individual bowls.
I also found a small wooden box filled with toys and other bits. I liked the printing on the side of the box. What better way to organize art supplies than in a vintage school crayon box!
Included in the box were two old glass bottles containing French art adhesive, two small metal fish, a tintype photo, bone objects, wooden climbing monkey toy, handmade wooden toy with compartment holding a Mason's pin, metal bird claw, cardboard goat, glass cross, old ceramic dish and tiny metal boat.

I will add some of these items to my store at StufftoTreasure so please stop by to browse.

Hope everyone is enjoying a wonderful Labor Day Weekend.

  2. Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”.
