What I did not expect was that once we (my sweet Daddy and hubby) got the dresser out, we would find a treasure trove in each of the drawers!! Eeek! This dresser is such a special find, and I am thrilled for it to find new life all these many years later!! :)
Look at those GORGEOUS crystal drawer pulls AND the unique key holes!!
And let's just say after sitting in a garage for 30 years or so an antique dresser might need a little wood glue and clamping!!
And these are pics of the treasures we found!!
Bracelets, earrings, necklaces, pearls, old perfume bottles, love letters, a piece of paper with my name and my brother's name written on it....oh my!!
A beautiful off-white bonnet!! Precious!
A cute little mitten and rocker sunglasses!!
One of my favorite finds....my Great Grandfather's business card holder! He was a policeman, and it is cool knowing he carried this around with him every day! :))
Along with this incredibly delicate black shawl we found some other "not-so-lovely" treasures! We found pantyhose, dried gum and the most disgusting item....dentures!! SO GROSS!!
I cannot wait to show you the after!!
