Weekend finds!

It's been a long weekend!  Time for me to catch up!  This post will have a lot of photos so sit back and relax.
First, stopped at a thrift shop and picked up one interesting item. 
This is a Georges Briard hot plate that folds out.  Has a section for crackers and a cheese board as the third part.  (don't you just love how I clean off my table before taking photos?)
It doesn't work, unfortunately, think it might have gotten wet at some point but it's still a nice piece and you can use it anyway, just don't plug it in!
Next, a friend gave me a few pieces!  Two seashell animals she found at a thrift shop and a toothpick holder found at the flea market.
Went to Leesport flea market again and was disappointed that it wasn't completely filled up with vendors.  A lot of empty spots but still was able to spend hours there and pick up a few items.
Surprised to find 3 more seashell animals!
This is a doorknob echelon, I think it is super but it is used with those old knobs so I think I'll look for a neat one to use, even if I don't use the lock part, it still dresses up your door.  Oh, maybe I'll sell it.  LOL!
Two cheap PBN sets.
Two metal wall hangings by Homco.  The apple press:
and football player:
PBN magazine rack:
This is neat, it is a printers set that was used to stamp identifying marks and dates on switchboards, phones, fuses etc.
It sure has a lot of stamps to it and it is so heavy, I'd hate to be the one that had to carry it around!
Has ink with it and I'm not sure how complete it is yet, but do know it is missing the brushes.

This awesome chip n' dip that is complete.  I have two others that one is missing the tiny bowl inside it and a second one that is missing one of the sections.  I'm going to use this Sunday for company!  Best part??  It was only $5.00!!!!
These are plastic Christmas angels.  There's a duplicate of the first one for a total of 4.
They are that hard plastic that becomes brittle after time so they have a few cracks but I thought they were cute.
Now to figure out how to store them!
We stopped at an antique mall.  I found a set of PBN's but unfortunately, they were not priced, the clerk tried to call the owner but never got a hold of him, so no sale there.  I did find these:
Bank folders for dimes.
I think these are the neatest ones I've ever seen.
That's all folks!
