I have no idea what I'll do with 'em, but, by golly, I brought 'em home! Old player piano scrolls... I think. The scrolls themselves aren't much to look at, but I love the boxes.
I think the graphics are very cool. They are rather battered on the ends, but I like 'em! I saw an antique store display that used old rolls of paper to cover a wall, with the paper all ratty and discolored, drooping and wrinkled. It was a very neat backdrop for antiques.
Maybe I could do something like that with my old player piano scrolls, but... I'm not sure I can bring myself to that to them. At least not quite yet.
I also found some more old bottles. I'm discovering all kinds of cool crafts I can use these old lovelies in, using old photos, hand-crafted lace, vintage jewelry and natural elements. I'll reveal some of those at a later date. I haven't decided which I will use for Christmas gifts yet, and I don't want to spill the beans!
I also acquired this vintage Avon perfume. Now Avon is not something I've ever gotten excited about, even when it is vintage. This particular bottle, however, is the same scent as a tin of talc that I have had forever. It was a gift from a friend that I haven't seen in well over 30 years, and have totally lost track of. It will look pretty, sitting on a shelf, reminding me of my long ago friendship. Isn't that what we love about vintage and antique items? The memories, or historical attachedments that they represent?
