Vintage Bits

My favorite television shows as of late seem to be American Pickers and Auction Kings. There is something so interesting about an item that has existed for decades ... moving from owner to owner. Sometimes its history is known and documented, but more often, it is left to the imagination as to the life it has lived.
I am so fortunate that I was introduced to a wonderful couple, Bob & Mary, who travel around in their retirement, searching for treasures. So many of the items they bring to the store would look beautiful in a dedicated scrap space.
To keep the kids occupied, a beautiful old abacus. How many little fingers do you suppose have counted on this? For holding your Tim Holtz Blending Tools, a vintage stamp holder with 3 vintage stamps ...
And just to look pretty up on a shelf or in a window ... printers blocks ...
Stop by to pick up your own little treasure :)
