The Mother of All Garage Sale Loot

I am definitely not a morning person.  But it pays off when you stay awake after dropping the kids off at school and head out for some garage sale shopping.  You cannot believe the loot I scored today.  I can hardly believe it myself.  So hard to contain my excitement!  Lookie:
This old sewing box is just what I need for my craft room.  I love the old ad and image on the front.  I'm not sure if it's a repro or an actual vintage find, but I love it nonetheless.
Could not pass up this old Smith Corona typewriter for $3.
Oodles and oodles of vintage sheet music, oh my!  It was marked $7 for all but I got them for $5.
Nice stack of old books - 50 cents each!
This old fan is gorgeous.  No spray paint makeover needed here.  Although it does remind me why they don't make fans like this anymore.  Small hands + fan blades = mother's worst nightmare.
This stamp wheel with stamps was only $1.  I also snatched up some star tart tins (in my Etsy shop), old wood bats and the Pilgrim box below.
Definitely in my glory today!  I went to 6 different sales and spent about $26 for everything.  Woo hoo!  And the weekend has only just begun...
