Memorial Day Weekend Finds

This weekend I decided to put my vintage American flag out. The box is very cool and dates it probably to the early 1960’s.

The one find I was excited about was an old wooden WWII bomber airplane toy. Let’s just say the condition was not good, but it was only $2.00 so I had to see if I could fix it up. I can only imagine how many miles this plane has on it from kids playing with it.
