My Saturday morning garage-saling ritual paid off again this week.
My most fun find today was this Dayton Scale.
The people were having a 'backyard' sale and there was a huge bottleneck to get to any of the items. I saw the scale when I first walked in, but couldn't get to it for quite some time. I finally got to it and, after the guy selling it told me someone told him it was worth a fortune, he sold it to me. :)
Now it's time for my husband to restore it. He did an amazing job on this scale a couple of years ago, so I have high expectations for this restoration too.
I also found some other things--the typewriter is newer than most of them that I collect, but it was $3. I just couldn't pass it up and that price! There is also a Baldwin candlestick that I was thrilled to find, and some birdhouses. I love the metal roofs on them. The cookie tin was free.
I'll be sure to post about the scale after it is redone.
Thanks for your visit.
