Here's what I came away with:
Lots of old coffee, tea and spice tins.
A few pieces of silver.
And my favorite find, this wooden box.
Doesn't look like much at first glance, and it definitely needs to be refinished or at least get a new coat of polyurethane. At first, I thought it was a recipe box of some kind. But then I took it home and opened it up to find that it's actually a vintage library card catalog box. Someone got stamp-happy on the inside, and I'm actually very happy they did.
The stamps are dated from the 1920s.
For now, the box lives inside this cabinet in the office. It's the perfect companion to my Card Catalog cabinet too.
Do you have any special family heirlooms or vintage hand-me-downs that you love?
