Treasure Box Thursday!

Hello Folks, it's that time of the week again!  I'm always amazed that each week, there are indeed new items online waiting for me to share with you!  Hope you like this batch of fun area antiques for your treasure box!

Alpena Hatpins

Hatpins were popular during the Victorian times, to add a personal touch to the giant feathery hats of the day.  These two happen to be from Alpena!

More Hatpins

 Mich-E-Kewis Beach Postcard

Imagine a time when one could pull their automobile right up to the water and park on the sand!  Looks like a good time was had by all.

"Typical Lumber Scene" Postcard

I can't lie - I look at this very impressive sleigh load of 4113 logs and several men, and all I can do is feel bad for the TWO horses pulling the whole darn thing!

D. Des Jardins & Son Advertising Souvenir Plate

Advertising plates were quite common in the first half of the century - this one likely dates to pre-1920.

That's all for this time!  Check back again soon for some new finds.
