Thrifty Thursday #228

My hubby and I went to an estate sale in town last Saturday.
We started off in the garage which is one of my favorite shopping spots at an estate sale.
I never know what I'll find in them.

Like this awesome old adding machine.
It still has its old roll of paper on the back.
It was marked $8, but we were there on the last day which meant everything was half off.
My hubby lugged this heavy thing around the rest of the house while we finished looking.

As I started walking through the house, I came across a pile of old games.
I picked up this one for $2 (after the discount).

Check out the game board.
So retro:)

I also picked up this one for $2.

This is what its game board looks like.
I just love vintage games.

Wouldn't these look cute hanging on a wall in a game room?

Another prime location at an estate sale is the office.
I always spend lots of time looking at the office supplies.
I got this extra long clipboard,

all these large white envelopes,

this old ledger book,

and this awesome old ledger book for $3!

Here's the inside of the book.
I actually saw a lady pick this up and carry it around for awhile.
I watched her making sure she was going to get it.
Much to my delight, she set it back down, so I swooped over to get it.

I also got two old yardsticks for a dollar each.

My hubby didn't get anything, but I walked out of there with two armfuls of stuff and only spent $13.
Gosh, I love estate sales.

Have you found anything good lately?

Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

Now may the Lord direct your hearts
into the love of God
and into the patience of Christ.

My grandmother was a book keeper and I remember her using an adding machine like that one.

I used to LOVE playing Payday! They just don't make board games like they used to!

Love old ledgers especially the ones with entries. Fun goodies!

I learned to use an adding machine on one like you purchased at the Estate sale. It was a dinosaur even then but if I ever saw one at a sale I would scoop it up in a minute. Vintage games are always fun to find too. As a retired accountant the ledger peaks my interest. Thank you for sharing your wonderful finds at Vintage Charm.
