Check out my purchases - Wardrobe Trunk, cute pins and some hair

I wasn't looking for a wardrobe trunk, but I have one now! I picked up this cool trunk locally this morning after going foodshopping. A little beat, looks like the outside was painted black, but it will make a nice display piece. Man is it heavy! And next time I buy a big, dirty old trunk, I'll clean it outside before I bring it inside. After a vacuuming, some Lysol and Spic-n-Span, it's looking pretty nice.




Inside of the trunk were a few 1940s wool clothing pieces that were smelly and very moth eaten. Also in the trunk were these 4 chunks of hair, one in a bag dated 1933.




I also picked up a few cute pins for myself. The turtle and seahorse will be perfect for the Shore.

It's real hair, like little ponytails that were cut off and saved.
