This was also in with the gum trinkets…it is really tiny, I think it is a vintage game piece….maybe Monopoly?  I don’t know but it is old…..:)

Oh, and one more item we got on our trip to Minnesota…..Deb found it in the clearance area of Touch of Home…..I am not a pink girl, but this lovely tablecloth just had to come with me….it will be pretty with my red Fiesta ware on Valentines Day….

I am still putting items away, as I have to get ready to decorate for Autumn, but I wanted to show you that there is DEFINITELY more out in the Midwest for us vintage loving folks that here in the desert! 

Have a great weekend!

I love the key chain puzzles! I remember them when I was a kid, I think they may be 1950's. Love the colors. Great finds.

My Little Grama worked as a cake decorator at a bakery. Once someone knocked the gumball machine over and she saved every one of the charms out of the crashed machine! We played with them for hours...happy memories!

Hi Sandy! What fun to see the puzzle key chains. I had an elephant one that I just loved in the 60's. All the bubble gum pieces are wonderful. I used them on my Rolodex. Too cute. It sounds like your trip was well "worth" the visit. Love the rose table piece! E
