Vintage Printer "Letter Press" Blocks

Still adding things to
my ever growing list of
vintage finds for
my shop this week.
When does the week
officially end?
Because I might not
get to it by tomorrow night!
(See update below!)
After all, isn't a lovely
photo display of my
finds just as important?
Of course!
See below!
(Thank goodness for Pic Monkey)
Found some old books
of interest:
Canterbury Tales
Chaplian of the Fleet
Count of Monte Cristo
(In French)
And an old, large glass frog.

Plus, vintage letter press blocks
used by a local printer or
newspaper company.
Capital letters, lower case letters,
numbers and ampersands, etc.
Is that how you spell ampersand?

Anyway, don't forget the
other cool stuff
I shared yesterday...
vintage petite suitcase,
high heeled shoe forms,
and cobalt apothecary
Will be adding anything
else I find this weekend
after we make a trip
to our antique booth...

Linking to:

and listed some of these new finds...

You have alot of amazing stuff in your shop. Saw something that I might want to order for my basement bathroom. It's not quite completed and I need to see what I already have, but I loved the talcom. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
