I love your box of junk!! I have only bought one box lot at an auction. And it was full of the most wonderful old clock parts and clock faces. I was thrilled with it. Happy Silver Sunday

I'm sure you'll come up with something great. I have a dollmaking friend who uses things like that to put her creations in. Very cute and they sell better.

That is a score!! At the moment I am drawing a blank as to what I would do with them. Give me a moment to think about ideas. I will let you know. Thanks for sharing.

Oh My !!! How wonderful
You can't imagine what we pay for something like this here.. never quite so great bargains... the 2nd hand shops have worked out what things are really worth so never quite as lucky as this.. great stash..

That is some box of silver! Are you going to leave it with the patina or polish it? $5, for the box...the silver gods were with you that day!

Nothing sweeter than a big box of junk from an auction to sort through at home--however, I'm not sure I've ever picked up such awesomeness as this load!
