Some awesome finds

I took Hayden and McKale out today to a thrift store so we could get out of the house. We didn't find much at the thrift store which was disappointing and so busy! I took a different way home then the way I went to the thrift store. I saw a house with a bunch of boxes sitting in the yard and lots of vintage/old stuff. I turned around and got out of the car to ask the lady if they were having a sale. She said no, but if I saw something I wanted then make an offer. I found some neat stuff. A 60's or 70's wire dress form (it has other parts to it...stands up...I have to figure it out), an old fan, a metal pic-nic basket, Halloween light up blow mold, a childs projector with film, lotto game, an old lock, old chalk board, some oval frames, and an old metal cooler. That will be awesome as a planter or something since the top was missing. I also got an old toy from 1964, but it was in the house, so I didn't get a picture of it. I went to another garage sale and got a box of Halloween stuff and there is alot of vintage paper decorations. Most of those I will put on Ebay later on this fall. (Those aren't pictured either).
