I am playing with shrink plastic right now.
I am making some sweet charms for the swap that Dawn Sellers is hosting.

Yesterday mom drove me to a local Historical Society that posted furniture for FREE on Craigs list.
I got a wire sales rack, that holds 12x12 sheets of paper, the type you see in a paper store, it is a few feet high.

I got a VERY cool folding art work and materials display with built on brackets so you can attach shelves, if you want to display 3-D objects it is 7 feet high and has 4 panels. I got a cool semi circular wire rack for displaying stuff.
I found a really nice wooden box with dove tailed joints, that has 4 drawers.
You have probably seen this type of a piece in an old library holding index cards.

I got a bolt of sail cloth, and a smaller magnetic display folding board for creating a nice presentation display.

Mom got some other stuff too.
It was FUN!

Wow, what a treasure trove! Which historical society was it?

I had to pass up a really nice color copy machine on Craig's List because I couldn't round a truck to haul it. You have a great mom!

Yes Craigs list has lots of great HEAVY items!
I have had to pass on color copies too!

Oh I am SOO jealous girl! I had found a larger library/index card holder piece awhile back but didn't get it. I wanted it SOO bad though. Again, send some of that luck in finding & getting such COOL stuff my way (PLEASE)!
