Pressing On With My Letterpress Drawer


Hello there!

Check out this awesome find I got at a garage sale. I paid one buckaroo!

Yes $1!!!

I really do not mean to keep bragging...




Looks like a letterpress box.  Not sure if it really is one but close enough.  And for a dollar I am not complaining and willing to pretend.

Here is another I saw at an antique store recently for $45.  Very nice but passed it by.  Still like mine!




I hung it up in our guest bedroom.  At first I was not sure what to put inside or do with it.  So it hung empty for some time.  Well, with the exception of my $0.25 lotus bowls.



Then I decided I would do as others have and display some of my stamps.  I also remembered how I bought a Ball jar filled with fun randomness and I was sure I could find some other neat things to fill other voids.  There were some jacks, a flag pin,
cool buttons.

Here is how it looks today in all it's glory!  Yes I could have maybe done more but I like it's simplicity.   For now it makes me happy.










Do you likey?  Go ahead let me know what you think!

  3. Love it!!!! I had my eye on one at an antique store two weeks ago, but I really didn't want to spend the $35 they were asking for it. I can't believe you found yours for $1!!!! Love how you displayed your stamps!
