Freebie Friday: Scarf, Old Box and a Brooch

sidewalk finds

September 1st is the biggest moving day of the year in Toronto. September 2nd is perhaps the greatest day to find free stuff on the sidewalk. Unfortunately I was out-of-town for this annual event, but Mr. Andrew found me a pretty Whiting & Davis mesh purse (images to come). Pictured above are three treasures found on my walk home from the dentist on Tuesday (the day after the greatest day to find free stuff on the sidewalk): A pretty little wooden box from the 1940s, a cool 1960s plastic coral cabochon brooch and a glittery purple scarf.

And on the weekend I picked up a made-in-Italy velvet purse (pictured below) and a cool 1980s leather belt from the curb.
