Peeking Into The Past With Vintage Photos Marion Iowa Gip Derflinger

Today's photo is a cabinet photo of Gip  Derflinger of Marion Iowa.

He is a handsome young man with mustache and holding his hat on knee.

The early census at ancestry make it hard to find this young man.  He was probably living

with his father and was not named on the census.

This photo is listed in my eBay store.

Look What I Found At The Bottom of a Old Hat Box At A Garage Sale

I love garage sales and it is all about the hunt.

 Piled on tables are a lot of treasures some cool and some just old chipped stuff from grandma's cupboards.

While wandering the tables I found a large old plastic hat box. Dirty , falling apart and zipper broken.

But inside were several wearable vintage women's hats from the 1930s to 1950s.

All listed on eBay in our store.  Sold one or two and it was time for us to travel south for the winter.

Hats take very little space in the van so on the road they went.

Well today another is sold and packed and on its way to Las Vegas

where it happens we are right now for the next few months.

We have a few more hats for sale and hopefully we will mail out a few more before returning north.

For the winter we will be wintering in Nevada. I loaded the van with items to sell on eBay.

Vintage photos, postcards, jewelry, barbie doll items plus miscellaneous treasures.

Lately I have been listing and selling some vintage doll items.

One of the treasures I brought was this Betsy McCall doll that came with other items in an auction.

Not sure of the date but she is early with jointed legs and arms.

After researching sold items,  I decided to list her at $18.00 on auction and received 5 bids and sold

for $22.50.

Cabinet Photo Samuel Elmer and Minnie Beye Colombiana Ohio

I recently purchased a group of vintage photos from some one I knew. They were her distant family

members but she had no one to pass them on to and knew that I love to buy and sell vintage photos

on ebay.

This cabinet photo is of Samuel Elmer and Minnie Beye of Colombiana Ohio.

Such a nice looking young couple from the early 1900s.

Hopefully I will find some one to add this photo to their collection or even a family member of this couple.
Thanks for stopping by.
