New Pick! Vintage Hand-tooled Leather Purse


Vintage Hand-tooled Leather Purse - $40 USD - Free shipping (USPS) within the
continental United States.


This is a family item, made by my father for my mother in the mid 50's, and the
floral motif looks nice. No money in it, just a few cobwebs, and needs to be
cleaned by someone who knows how. It has two additional pockets on the inside,
and one on the back. The strap is adjustable. It does have the initials SS on it, but
don’t let that stand in your way. It measures 4 and 1/2 inches Deep, by 11 and 3/4
inches Wide, by 10 and 3/8 inches High. What you see is what you get.

New Pick! Vintage Powder Tin Music Box


Vintage Powder Tin Music Box - $28 USD - Free shipping (USPS) within the
continental United States.



The patina on this is amazing, the ceramic medallion ( Napoleonic or Victorian,
not sure. ) is in one piece, and the musical mechanism actually works, just like it’s
supposed to! See it working in the video I made for an earlier post. No, I can’t tell
you the name of the song. The powder puff is, of course, missing, but I could see
this as a jewelry box for a lady of distinction.

It measures 4 and 1/4 inches Wide at the base, by 3 and 15/16 inches High. There
are no manufacture’s marks. What you see is what you get.

My PayPal Buttons are UP!

And, they’re good to go. I have easy store links to the right for my books, made
my first video, and there’s so much more to do, I’ll just have to keep plucking
away it.

I did yard sell this weekend with my clutter. Mainly it was to help my family with
scouting activities, and people’s hearts were in the right place, because I hardly
sold squat. The stuff for scouting went like gangbusters.

It was a little chilly, I got a nice sunburn on my balding head, plus it gave me a
good idea. Something I’ll have to explore.

Back to work.

My First Video for Rip's Picks

Go easy on me. I'll have to work on my presentation, but this does give a little perspective on size, and working condition.

This vintage early American decorative item is designed to hold wood matches
and measures 2 and 13/16 inches Long, by 3 and 1/8 inches Wide, by 6 inches
High.

The quality is there, the color is there, and the patina is amazing. It’s dark where it
should be, has a little rust where it should be, and what you see is what you get.

manufacturer of sawhorse products, mailboxes, and workbench drawers for the
home and construction industry.
