Along with various Metallic Trims and a Prayer Card for less than a Quarter!!! Yes, I can get just as Excited with those Smalls that are so Cheap they are practically Free! *LOL* When I have specific items in mind to Pick for I can usually find at least a few. Mostly this day everything was by pure Serendipity though and not something I was necessarily seeking or thinking I even needed, which made it even more Exciting when I ran across it unexpectedly!!!
Some things I just never pass up when I find them anywhere or anytime and especially on the Cheap... like these unusual Doilies tatted from Metallic Thread, though it's hard to see how Metallic Gold they are in this Image or the intricacy of the pattern. Got this pair for a mere Nickel!!! My Nanna used to Tat Irish Lace and it really is a dying Art Form that is quite Labor Intensive so not many people would do it anymore even if they knew how to. So when I find any Tatted Treasures or Hand-Made Doilies, I don't pass them up if the price is decent... because it's always a Value. Since if you paid for what it would cost by the Hour to Create, you'd have to pay a lot because they'd certainly be spendy!
The Jack Straws Game appears to be about a 1970's version, this is a very similar genre of Game to Pick Up Sticks which I also found in this same Box Lot. The Jack Straws version is more Interesting since it has these delicate Game Pieces shaped like various items rather than just being sticks. Not a one of these very delicate plastic Game Pieces was broken which is nothing short of Miraculous given how many decades old it is and how fragile plastic is in hot climates especially. Most of these are as delicate as a plastic toothpick since the diameter isn't much bigger! I would suspect not many younger Children played with this one?
