Junky Finds, Fun and Games

I'm going to interrupt the Central Texas Antique Store tour for a day, to show you my great finds from today. There were 2 estate sales in town today, and I did well at each of them. As well as hitting a couple of my favorite spots. All buys were great deals IMHO.
One of my first great finds was this unusual wooden very old croquet set.

Now I don't know if you find this, but It seems to me that I can visit several sales and end up with a theme when I get home, I guess my theme today was fun and games because I also found this great old fose-ball table (how do you spell that)

And this old bingo game

And a very old iron toy train engine

I also found some great all purpose junk.

Aren't these nice. They would be great place card holders, or ephemera, sign, or picture holders.

This old chippy lamp will become a candle holder centerpiece

Random Junk, I loved the S latch and the shape of the rake. and I always need knobs and bottles.
My best find was the croquet set, what a beauty and so unusual. The fose ball table and croquet set will be available at my Barn Sale.
Back to the antique tours tomorrow.

Hey! My parents have a croquet set almost exactly like that in their garage! We played with it all the time growing up.

I wish my name started with S. I do love letters! I suppose it doesn't count if I have 2 ss in the middle of my last name. We should all put up letters on the same day and trade or something. Got any K's?
