weekend finds

Well we finally had a beautiful weekend here in OH and I was able to do some flea marketing. I picked up a couple of old books, some vintage jewelry and these wonderful finds...

I found this old photo album full of tintypes, when I got it home and took all the photos out,I had this amazing collection of 100 tintypes!
I was also able to get this great collection of old clock cases, I can't wait to use these!!!
