Thrifty Thursday #224

I recently went to an estate sale and actually had the opportunity to make it to their pre-sale.
(A pre-sale is when they open on Thursday afternoon before the official sale
that runs Friday through Saturday.)
I didn't find anything big. I did, however, score some good office supplies.

I love old stamps.
I got these for $1 each.

I never pass up ledger paper- even it it's not vintage.
I got the pad of ledger paper for fifty cents and the graph paper pad for a dime.

I got this bundle of chipboard for fifty cents.

I also got a bunch of envelopes for $1.
I was loving the bottom envelopes. They're not your average size envelopes: they're 5 x 11 1/2".

The last thing I picked up is this tin of Brasso.
When I was in the Army, we used this stuff quite a bit on doorknobs and belt buckles.
I have a few old pewter pieces that I'd like to try to clean up.

Sometimes when I hit an estate sale pre-sale, I plan to go back on the last day to see what I can get at half price. I didn't see anything that I wanted to go back for this time, but I was glad I stopped.

Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

Love seeing people's finds! What will you do with the stamps? Anyway, useful finds. I never pass up ledgers either. I use them to do my bookkeeping on Etsy. Visiting links today from Vintage Charm Link Party.
