The treasure I am showing today is one of my favorite finds for a few reasons: 1) it is an unusual piece, 2) it is a very versatile display piece and 3) it is vintage and I love vintage. I found this at a flea market (actually I bought two...I'm only showing one). I paid $20.00 apiece for them (more than my thrifty self likes to pay but I couldn't pass them up).
Here are a few pictures of my flea market find. My best guess is that it was a vintage time-card holder. It is made of oak and has 24 slots for time cards. It is 40" long, 6" wide and 2.5" deep.
The time card slots are great for displaying pictures, postcards,etc. I've got a lot of vintage ephemera so I plan on changing this out for the seasons.......I took a couple of pictures of items I had on hand just to give you an idea.
Wedding photos of my grandmothers (wedding dates 1910 and 1928) and my mother (wedding date 1953)
Vintage photos and postcards
This will be a great piece to get my ephemera out of the boxes and displayed for me to enjoy.
