Camera Buffs???

 hey you vintage camera buffs out there!

I bought this case and figured out it is for holding 12 rolls of film.
 Here it is open, and in the bottom is the long belt that went around it.
missing buckle.
It is 7x6x2"

Anyone know anything about it?
Trying to figure out selling price, history.

thanks

 Been junkin'.

Rusty Treasures


I love rust.
Anyone who knows me will tell you that.
Right now I am collecting for some art pieces.
Cannot wait to show you.


Here are some rusty pieces gathered and cleaned, well sort of. =)

  love all these too.

  'uncleaned' rust. =)

not rusty, but perfect patina.



 and finally, love the rust on this bread box.
and a bit of tarnished gray and rust on the old egg scale too.

Thanks for taking a look.
one rusty project coming up next. =)

be blessed
Barb

PS this stuff all rusted naturally, but look on side bar for tutorial on rusting metal too.

Loving What I Do

  New display in the fireplace.....

OK, ya gotta love a job where you get to shop all the time,
make cute displays, work with family, meet tons of nice people,
 learn about old things, and give them a new life.
Perfect job. Right?
  Even tho' there are always wrinkles to iron out,  with the help of my sweet fella,
my granddaughter, and my Mom, we manage to muddle thru it all.

  I gather, my husband picks up big loot, my Mom helps clean all the 'stuff',
 (and does lots of other 'jobs'),
 and my granddaughter watches the store for me when I cannot.
 (and helps keep the place clean). =)


We are a team...we work well together, and the work is fun,
 because we are doing it together.

I am blessed, to have the store, to hang out with family,
 and to meet other people when they come in.
Sometimes they come to shop, other times just to visit, or get a hug.
It is a wonderful little world, and I am grateful
 to the Lord for each day I get to enjoy it.

blessings
