Here are a few acquisitions --
Two boxes of Super 8 family home movies. It's sad that people don't keep stuff like this.
The house had a bunch of equestrian stuff, and from what I can tell from the reels that have labels, a bunch of the films were shot at riding events in the late 1960s -- early 1970s. Oddly, at another estate sale the same day I picked up an 8mm projector and screen, and that was before I found the films!
I'll try to set up the projector and try out some of these films to see what we've got.
Yellow bathroom scale for pretty cheap - it's just the right color for our basement bathroom with its light yellow and black tile. It needs a little cleaning, but I've seen worse. I love the diamond stenciling.
Unfinished pieces of knotty pine. I've been in a couple of houses that featured lumber and woodworking tools. The house I was in today had a very organized shed out back, and I noticed some tongue and groove panels up high on a rack, and sure enough, it was this knotty pine. I got a very reasonable price on it. It's unfinished, so while it's not quite enough to cover a wall, even if I do a short four-foot run from the floor halfway up a wall, it will be great to have if I find some more knotty pine. We have an unfinished area in the basement where I can visualize knotty pine walls.
It's the kind on wheels which you move close to the sink, connect a hose, plug in to an outlet and run. It was cheap, bought during the last half hour of a sale where the old house will be demolished. Our current dishwasher is broken, and I love the graphics on the face of this thing.
I shot a few photos of things I didn't buy, including this nice aqua oven which was in the house where I found the bread box. It was priced around $100 -- hopefully someone saved it, maybe on half price Sunday.
Yesterday I saw this 1970s table and L-shaped bench for a breakfast nook. For just $50 it looked like a good deal for someone. Today, Sunday half-price day, it still didn't have a taker at $25. Sad.
I didn't try to fold it out, but the top part of the back folds backwards and then I think the rest of the sofa flattens out to make into a bed (?).
