Over the weekend I went to my local monthly flea market and got some fun treasures I will be showing later this week. Today, I bring you vintage boxes from that estate sale last weekend. I love wooden crates and boxes, and these pretties are so neat!
There were about 50 or more of these boxes, and people were grabbing them like crazy. Once I got my two home, my husband looked into the company. These boxes had chocolate in them, filled to the brim. Yummy!! This couple must have loved chocolate, with so many of them.
The Walter Baker & CO. was established in 1780, in Dorchester, Massachusetts.
The company was sold to different people throughout the years, and in 1979 it was incorporated into Kraft Foods. Wish we still had these small companies around.
The couple had turned them all into drawers, that were kept in their garage. Now I have some sweet boxes for storing some of my goodies.
With chocolate...comes the cheese. These were some fun cheese boxes they had in the garage, also turned into little drawers. I love the craftsmanship and creativity this sweet couple had!
Today in the mail I received a wonderful patriotic treasure that I bought from the most talented and lovely Laurie of Magpie Ethel.
I adore her beautiful, vintage creations and had to have one of her patriotic vintage foil candy container ornaments. I love the blue bell, the sparkly star, and red mercury glass picks.
It is so pretty and just full of special vintage goodies! Thank you so much Laurie! I love it!! Make sure you pop over to Laurie's Etsy shoppe to see her other wonderful vintage creations!
I was only able to get one grannie block, and a pair of granny squares done over the weekend. Thank you to the sweetest Renee of My Vintage Mending for introducing me to the cute birdie clips! I love them!!
And here is a little sneak peak of some new products I am working on for my shoppe!
Wishing you a creative, and sunny week!
