It is really tooooo cold for yardsales, but the first one of the season in 40 degree weather with wind blowing, I roughed it anyway. I am truly glad I did.
First thing I spotted was this little maple desk or dressing table. Someone had tried refinishing it, but I am going to paint it white and distress it a bit. For $5.00 I could not leave it.
My treasure was the antique finger jointed cinnamon box with great graphics and slide top. The gentleman selling it said that his father worked in a store in New jersey and when it closed his father kept this box. It is a treasure and I cannot find any information on cinnamon boxes of this type anywhere online or in any of the books I have. Any information someone could furnish would be greatly appreciated. At $5.00 I knew I could not go wrong.
I also got the twisted stem ruby candleholders for $1.00 each. A damascene bracelet for $2.00, an elf riding some kind of animal made in occupied Japan for $2.00 and the silver planter for $1.00. Not a bad haul for $17.00.
