I hope you will enjoy seeing what junk treasures we have recently found. I want to say thank you to all who commiserated with me when I got hurt. My arm is healing but it will be awhile before you don’t see the wound! Mr. Deanie is such a wonderful junk treasure hunter. He found most of these items I will be sharing today. Mr. Deanie is truly my
Here are some of the junk treasures recently found at estate sales. Pictured are 3 hand washer plungers for laundry and a washboard. The green vase with the yellow deer is a Shawnee vase.
The contemporary Singer sewing box that folds open to show all the compartments for your thread, needles, thimbles, scissors, etc.
Here are two rolling pins which actually had paper tags telling the previous owner’s name. A nice large yellow Pyrex mixing bowl, Pyrex pink baking dish/cake pan and a red Pyrex mixing bowl. You can see the middle of the washing plungers has a nice rusty patina. It is my favorite one!
Five slaw cutters and only 2 are similar. These are great to repurpose.
This is marked Royal Rand and on the side Adding – Bookkeeping – Calculating Machines – Made in USA. It is totally manual with a handle on the side. It is works and is actually a gorgeous shiny black and would make a great junk treasure item to display in a vignette.
Now for the item I fell in love with. I left it until last as it is my favorite! It is another typewriter but this one folds! I have never ever seen a folding typewriter. I cannot believe how many typewriters that we have found recently and I might have to write another post showing them all and their ages. This one is a 1917 folding Corona. I had never seen one before.
It has the original envelope that contained the manual which is also included and the original case!
Isn’t this a beauty? I am loving it so much. It is 100 years old so officially an antique!
Here it is folded. You bring the back up and it folds over the keys.
Now here is the dilemma – which of the typewriters to keep. Here is a reminder of the one I first fell in love with.
Mr. Deanie says there isn’t a dilemma as we should just keep both of them for now. We have never had either model before. So the Corona is a 1917 and the Royal is a 1935 model. They both are quite gorgeous in real life. They look so much prettier than these photos. So I guess there isn’t a dilemma, we will keep them for now and
drool over them admire them for awhile.
Wishing each of you a great journey in your own hunt for vintage junk treasures and make sure to have fun along the way! Remember you are making memories!
Wishing you many blessings in 2017.
