Since school starts in our neck of the woods next Monday, my thrifty finds this week are all school related.
What's school without textbooks? I got these vintage school books for $1.00 apiece.
I found this great vintage loose leaf notebook for $1.00 at an antique store. This notebook was filled with recipes from the 1940's (I haven't tried any of them....I'm not much of a cook).While vactioning in Ohio this summer I found this cute old wood pencil box for $2.00 at a thrift store. The division worksheet card was in a set I found at a garage sale for 50 cents.
This vintage slate board was $3.00 at an antique store. I'm going to use this to display my grandmother's grade school class photo from 1915.I put all my school finds in this "Back to School" vignette. I purchased this small vintage suitcase at a flea market for $5.00. The other items in the display (not mentioned above) are a vintage ruler (50 cents), a school picture of my father-in-law (circa 1933) in a thrift store frame (25 cents) and a copy of my grandmother's grammar school diploma (1920) with a class photo on a clip board that I've had for years. The small banners belonged to my neighbor when I was growing up. They were in her high school memorabilia from 1931.
Happy Back to School!!!!
