Vintage Black Lunchbox



Today is a day of transition! We are moving from our autumn, Thanksgiving holiday mode into the Christmas season...a season of magic and wonder!
But first, our last Vintage Black Friday post...
This is Uncle George's lunchbox! He was a carpenter by trade for many years and at 92 years old he is now happily retired and no longer needs his trusty and just a tad rusty lunch box...



Transitioning.....a little vintage Santa...



Pow! A lunchbox full of shiny bright Christmasy foil thingies!



...a vintage black store receipt holder....



My flea market found shoes...the sheet music liners are a bit bright...will have to tone them down a bit...



Enjoy the season!
Dan and I are off to shop! What else to do on Black Friday?!
To see more of our last Vintage Black Friday posts visit Jill at Gypsy Brocante!

Hello Laura... the old lunchbox is wonderful...and even more wonderful is your uncle George at 92 years young! I am sure you know your foil "thingies" are vintage Christmas light reflectors! I collect those, and adore them!... Bisous... Julie Marie

There must have been some great stories that went with that lunchbox! I have an old black Hemingway style typewriter that could've captured them... And those shoes make you want to dance to a veritable Symphony of Christmas... Happy shopping!
