Thrifty Thursday #25

               Hi Guys! Recently when my hubby and I were headed out of town, we saw a huge yard sale in the middle of nowhere. My sweet hubby asked if I'd like to turn around and check it out. Of course I said yes! Here's what we found. . .

This old film projector was only $5. It's so old and beautiful. It's sitting on a shelf in my livingroom right now.
It's a Kodascope Eight-33. After we got home, I actually plugged it in to see if it would work- I have a couple of old films that I've purchased that we could watch.
The light was extremely bright and right away it smelled like it was burning. I turned it off and set it back on the shelf. Later my hubby told me I could've started a fire. Whoops.

These four old milk bottles were marked as $1 each. I asked if the lady would take fifty cents per bottle. She agreed, then only charged me a quarter a piece when I went to pay! Doesn't hurt to ask!

Then I paid $1 for this roll of white tulle- who could pass this up?:)

     Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:28

great stuff! I have an old projector and it smells when I turn it on... but I think it's just the vintage (musty/dusty) smell. lol

but better safe than sorry.
