Mod podge I always see people talking about it in blogland and I have never used it, It was sealed so I figured it would be fine. I also found a baggie in one of the desk drawers they sold me everything in this first photo for $1. Eight vintage typewriter balls you can see what I have done in the past with them here, and here. Then there was a cute little ruler and a little alligator snapper.
The globe. I have wanted a globe for a long time but I always see them very expensively and cheap, this one was listed as a gift from the 1970's. I want to paint it with chalkboard paint and then chalk in the continents, I have a lot of chalkboard paint left over from my chalkboard pig. However I want this to be green chalkboard paint if there is such a thing. I learned that the Equator is the glue (or the sticker) that olds the glue together. I learned that when the equator came off when I was disinfecting the globe when I got it and everything else home.
This was the "alligator snapper" I was talking about. I am really not sure what this is...
What do you think this is?
Really leave me a comment.
SO this is what I learned:
Things I like about estate sales, well priced unique items, and with this one, if you or more specifically I was not really as bought in to the purging for the New Year, this will help you a lot. I have taken three loads of things to goodwill since Friday. I texted Mike the other day to see if he was ok with me donating certain things and he laughed at me... extensively and said honey if there is something you are willing to part with by all means GET RID OF IT! I have taken a blow up mattress, its pump, two pairs of shoes, a digital picture frame, curtains, and a home improvement thing back since then because anything extra we have we do not need.
What I do not like about estate sales or at least this one, They sold the food (ickky), and the bath items some half used (gross), they had lots of cats, and I could not get out once I got in until everyone in front of me was ready.
