Garage Sale Chronicles #13

Went to an estate sale in Clear Lake, MN about 1/2 hour after it opened this morning.  The antique dealers were still there making huge piles of vintage stuff.  The garage was full of toys most of which were  still in their box.  There were unopened board games, model cars, doll houses, puzzles, star wars figures, and on and on.  I could have snatched up quite a few but nothing really jumped out at me as "I have to have this!"

There were a few of us junkers there as well.  I managed to pick out a couple cool things.  I loved the gray and chrome table.  They had the bigger dining room one as well but the chrome was stripped away from the edges of the table.  I think the set of had cardboard drawers will look good in my sewing room.

As a made my second round through the garage I looked under a table to find this vintage croquet set.  I swear the mallets are oak.  They sure don't make 'um like this anymore.

I'm going to try to make these cheese boxes into a set of drawers.

The two games above are from Milton Bradley.  I don't think I've ever seen The Lone Ranger, Sammy goes to the White House.  I think tin box is really old!
