Open Front Buggy Plate

I found this on March 16th, 2013. It's about 4 and a half inches so it's pretty smalll. I looked online and found a few similar. They all had the same picture in the middle but they were different shapes and some had different edges. The one I have for sale above is the only one I found in this shape with this outline pattern. It's a cool little decorative piece. Otherwise I'm sure you can use it to eat off but it won't hold much food. It was probably made in the mid to late 1900s.

Quaker Oats Tin

I picked it up the morning of March 9th. I found it on the back of a shelf and I fell in love. It is a limited edition tin from 1982. When I got home I looked it up and I found a few in eBay for around $50. It's pretty cool but you probably should use it as a decorative piece instead of a food container because the inside is a little rusty.

Saalfield's Muslin Books - Furry Coats

Picked this up the morning of March 9th. It is a cloth book. When I got home I noticed the tiny letters in the bottom right corner. It said copyright 1908!! It's 105 years old. It was made by Saalfield's Muslin Books company in New York. It is probably the most amazing thing I have ever found. It is a little damaged at the bottom where some of the string has become lose. It's still in amazing condition for being 105 years old. I'm not sure if I'm going to sell it but if you are interested send me a message.

Two Japan Figurines

I bought these two little occupied japan figurines on March 2nd, 2013. I don't know much about them but they were made in japan and they are old. They are porcelain and are hollow. They are about 3 1/2 inches tall. The only damage I saw was that the boys head had previously fallen off and was repaired rather well. It is barely noticeable.

Small Red Tin with Portraits of Two 19th Century Ladies on it


I got this little tin March 2nd, 2013. Today this little tin caught my eye. It is about 5 1/2 inches tall and 4 inches on each side. It is a square tin but it is kind of rounded. The lid has a little handle on it. It's pretty thick and keeps whatever is inside the tin air sealed. When I got home I looked it up on google to see if there were any other ones similar for sale. Sure enough right on I found the same exact one ( ) for $32!!!! I didn't pay that much for it so I'm only asking for $15. It is great for cookies, crackers or just a display piece for your living room. I you want it just click the button. The tin doesn't have any writing on it and it is in excellent condition. I'm not sure when it was made but it was probably made around the 1930s? maybe.
