Fun Treasures

I was drawn to this dirty old box at a yard sale, it has been my experience those normally don't get opened and are ignored and... typically have something inside them that I will buy! Today was no exception. Can you feel it drawing you closer to it?Upon lifting the lid, I saw a book called "Plaster Casting and Finishes"... I was intrigued. I asked out loud to whomever was listening--- "How much is this box full of stuff?" A very old lady comes over and begins to tell me a very long and animated story about how a salesman talked her into buying this "lettering kit." Lettering kit? Do tell... do tell..... Long story short, the box contains rubber molds that you pour plaster into to create letters. *gasp*...... The box contained 3 different sized molds of letters and numbers. The box even had some pre-made letters & numbers ready to be used.How much did I pay for this fun treasure?*insert happy dance here* I also picked up this ab-fab statue of a fat cat. I do believe my cat "Charlie" sat as a model for this cute~
