tiny pin - less than 1/2 inch diameter
jar and bottle opener
card catalog
an awl
i think this is used in fishing (a bobber of some kind)?
the colors reminded me of the buoys i used to see in maine. 
not sure what this went to - there are hinges but no top...
...and a strange keyhole thing on one side
and an AWESOME bookshelf
it's taking the place of this chair i sold
flea market finds at work

4.30.12 & 5.7.12

i have finally procured a laptop with internet and photo editing capabilities. it's a dinosaur, measuring in at 1.5" thick when closed, but it will do.

two sets of brass stencils with 3" letters (6pica, 216points). neither set had the letter "U"
besides that, the alphabet is complete
there were six 2" (12pica, 144point) letters mixed in
a pretty scrap of fabric
neat sketchbook with a wooden door on the cover; blank  pages
a divided box
a beautifully hand-tooled leather belt
