I love antique shows and flea markets, especially during the winter when there aren't any garage sales going on.
Recently I found a Chinese Checkers board at a flea market. It didn't come with any of the marbles, but good ol' Amazon had someone selling a complete set for $5.
I wanted to display the board on the wall of my Game Room, so used Tacky Glue and a toothpick and filled each hole. I set each marble in and let them dry. Instantly I had colorful artwork for the wall!
Recently, I found this old bank and a jar of marbles. The bank works by collecting nickels, dimes and quarters. When the value in the bank reaches $10, you can open it. Yes, we now put our change in each evening. My husband knew exactly how it worked, as he'd had one of these growing up.
I love the colorful jar of marbles. It came with a new lid, so I just changed it out to an old zinc lid and love the new look!
What fun things have you found lately?
Thank you for your visit!
