garge sale find!!!!

 I found this at a garage sale..and I have been looking for a chest forever.....
 opened it up and what did I see...but a photos upon photos
 glued on the lid...and wait there is more....
 on the boxed inset...
 inside the boxed inset
 and the bottom fabric tray was still intact....yipee I say..Yipee!!!
Now that I saw it surely they must want way too much for this piece of treasure..history even...I asked what she wanted to it and she says "20?..too much".....I say I will take it for 20!!! And her boy even helped me get it into my truck....smiling all the way home....and when I began cleaning it I found a German War Medal..equivalent to our purple heart......I didn't take a pic of it..not sure how I feel about the German thing and swaztikas...see the spelling not sure of that either..but man did I score on the trunk..Happy Dance....on a sad note..the store I buy my DMC thread from is going out of busines.....oh no.....Thanks for taking the time to read my blog...blessings to you all.

Oh wow!! You did find a treasure! And the price....what a deal. I wonder if it was from their family? Thanks for your comment Vikki. I have been crocheting a little here and there. I have several WIP's and need to work on them.

That just bites big you know what that your store is going out of business! It's getting harder and harder to find quality supplies anymore!

The chest looks awesome. What a steal at 20.00....the war medal is kind of creepy.

And just what is on your hook woman!

Oh, and when are we gonna be seeing pics of Buddy again? He's way too cute to not be on this blog.

Have a wonderful hooky day.

What a treasure and what a lucky find. About the war medal, there's probably a story behind it; I wonder what it is?
So sorry about your favourite shop closing. I hope you will find another.

Wow! What a find, well done. :)
A medal is a medal, it's part of history. ;)

That IS a score!! What a great find. I always look for trunks when I go garage sale-ing. Very cool.
