My favorite matchbook I got - Look familiar??
The haul from 7-22
Finally I had a chance to hit some estate sales over the past few weeks! I was about to go through withdrawal. They don't call me the Junky Trinket for nothing! I love to hit the sales on Thursdays and find the goods. I picked up around 400 matchbooks from all over the southwest last week. Tons of Las Vegas ones and a lot from Dallas as well. The Alamo Plaza one is my fave! On my last adventure I picked up some great finds. 1950's Bingo cards and other games - $1 each - great for collage. 1950's Texas license plates - $3 each -steal!! 1960's Texas maps .25 each - always pick up the maps. Perspective Drawing book - $1 - my second one of those. Old Pepsi bottle crate - $3 - what a deal! 1940's ticket stub for war event at Cotton Bowl - free!- it was in an old scrapbook and she said to just take it. 1960's Coors Beer drinking glass - .25 - for my bro. Not too bad of a haul!! I did run into some trouble when a man running a sale changed the price on a sign from .10 a piece for old postcards to $6.00 a piece...needless to say I let him know he was out of bounds.....I told him to call me when he realized his error.
