Another Goodwill find. Paid a dollar. I know it is a ]Cast Iron Coin Safe. On the front it reads, Star Safe. Just curious when this was made and why. Was it really a bank . Or salesman sample?

Mystery Solved

    Wonder if your sister could take a peek at my vintage loveseat. Under my name all my stuff is listed. If she could I'd greatly appreciate it. Where in Michigan are ya from? I'm in Lansing.

    Goodwills in Arizona have proved to be a good treasure hunt. I am from CA and usually the thrifts have little to nothing, so I usually hit yard sales, estate sales and so forth.

    Hello Laura, Mt Pleasant Area, about an hour an half North of yea, and My sisters more of a hobbyist when it comes to the antiques, she’s a nurse and antiques on the side, the treasures she does find she just keeps, she has some very nice antique furniture in her home, I don’t have nearly as much room as her which is one reason why im into the antique glass business, small beautiful and easy to store!

    Oic! Awesome! I love antiques, goodwill, estate sales & auctions! I was bought up that way by my parents. I help my parents every Sunday with their Flea Market they set up at. :) It is soo fun!! Such a thrill to me, never knowing what you're going to find out there. It is such a rush!! I posted some stuff like 10 items for my Parents on here. I am going to post some more things they want to know more about when I head home for the weekend. :) This site is awesome! One of my favs.
    Take Care, Laura
