VINTAGE ELEVATOR CALL BUTTONS FOUND AT LOCAL AUCTION
I was able to buy 2 call buttons from what was once Glass Block in down town Duluth Minnesota. I have great memories of taking a taxi cab ride with my mom and sister to shop for clothes. After shopping we would take the elevator to the basement to eat at the counter.
I have now listed one of them on eBay for auction and they should do well. Wonderful pieces of history and would make great decorating pieces or book ends.
On a different table was 4 United States mail box covers.
Add an old telephone bell
One error was an old camera I bought for $3.00. I did not pay attention and the camera is missing, but who cares. It as a note of when it was given as a Christmas gift and from who. Can sit on a table as a decorating piece and even hide a treasure inside if some one wants to.
Hope that you finds are fun whether you are hunting estate sales, thrift stores or auction houses.
