Great Finds

During my terrarium project I hit up 3 different local second-hand shops in order to collect some of the supplies.  And mixed within the endless used clothes and old electronics were a couple hidden treasures.  -At one point while skimming the stores I wished I had an understanding of antiques (you've all seen the tv show, Antiques Roadshow, right?)-  Anyway, I snapped some pics of some of the great finds, just so I could share them with you!

Check out this old Singer sewing machine!
(My parents always had a sewing machine in the house, wished I had learned how to use one, maybe I still will!)


And this old record collection, wow, there must be some great finds in there!
(During summers at my grandparents in NJ I remember playing there old 45's, especially The Monster Mash!)

 
Of course there was the kooky stuff!
(Pretty sure this came out of the Disney's Polynesian Resort or possibly a Thai themed restaurant, what's your guess?)

 
I'm already itching to go back to the second-hand shops, but since my terrariums are still in test phase I'll wait a couple weeks before buying more supplies.

Hope you enjoyed the great finds!

Bye! Dag! Adios! Namaste!

  2. I love second hand stores! I always go shopping there first before I even consider trying to buy it new. Sometimes I find something that I wasn't even looking for and it's awesome! These are some great finds. Thank you for linking up with Countdown in Style.

    1. Maybe once we get a house and I can finally make some space for a work room I'll think about sewing lessons!
