I imagine that most of you are listing like mad fiends right now. I certainly have been. And that’s why I took a break last week to go to an estate sale. Not because I needed anything…I just needed to clear my head. And sales get me pumped up again!
It was a good two hours into the sale, but I’ve trained myself to remember that that doesn’t matter. And again…it didn’t.
In one of the bedrooms, for a mere $10, there was a stack of various OLD ephemera on top of a dresser in a folder. World War II rosters, two postcards from 1879 that were written from a Girl’s University, some miscellaneous pamphlets and little booklets, and this….
It’s a sweet little booklet from the 1914 Chicago Ice Wagon Drivers and Helpers Union Reception and Ball. What a great piece of history! Inside has all the songs they played that night and the names of the various officers. I just love that it survived all these years! I’m listing it on Ebay this week as I’m sure someone has a connection to this area/history/occupation.
Of course…finding THIS would have been a tad more interesting.
Hope you are having a great week and great sales!
