Is there a better weekend in the Valley than the Pride Parade, roller derby and some excellent garage sale-ing? I think not. This weekend netted some more terrific vintage maps (are you sensing a theme here, or, perhaps, a slight obsession?):
some amazing hooks that are allegedly from the Crane Estate in Dalton:
that's Gus' hand...
a cool vintage-y yardstick to make one of these, some old-school 80's sunglasses (Pretty in Pink? 16 Candles? Risky Business?), and the best yet: a recent article in Reclaimed Crafts made me start thinking about using the old-style Scrabble tile racks to affix to the chalkboard windows to hold the chalk. This morning I went to a tag sale, picked up a Scrabble game, and discovered that all it has in it are the tile racks. Serendipity, or what?
