    The find of the day


    ADVERTISEMENT
    I thought I'd start a thread for showing off the great items we find from day to day. Today I found this piece of ivory at the Portland Antique Expo.

    Here are a couple of pics of the burl caps I bought at It's a Burl last week.





    If you ever get anywhere near Kerby, OR you'd be a fool to pass this place by. SOOO much fun even my wife enjoyed herself.
