Fun Finds...

Look what I found today...not one but 2 aqua glass Delco Battery Cases.  Now I don't know much about these and I'm not much of a "research girl"...but I did find this in on the Delco Light Colloectors Website.

I'm already "dreaming" about all the fun ways I can use them.

And I'm not sure but I'm guessing that I got a steal at $3.99 a piece!  If any of you out there in Blog land have any fun ideas or additional information on these pretties...do share :)

Happy Thrifting my friends!

  1. I don't know much about them but blue tinted glass is very popular right now. Have fun using them as vases or whatever! Yes, I think you got a great price!

    Have a good week, Laurel!

  3. What a wonderful find Laurel! Never seen those before! The would display junk beautifully!!!

  4. WOW...I'm sure they are worth WAY MORE than 3.99 each!! What a FIND! Look on ebay to see if there any for sale. That gives a price range!
    Very COOL!!

    Never seen them before!

  5. Wow these are so neat looking. I don't know much about them but I would say that it looks like you got them at a great price!! Look forward to seeing how you use them.

  6. Those are so pretty. I've never seen them before. They have endless possibilities.

  7. Laurel,
    I have seen thewse before. They were priced between 30-35 dollars each. They dress them as you would old fish tanks. They are really wonderful. I am sure Sue will see some at Marburger Farm. Great find!!!

  8. They are lovely ~ I've never heard of them. Ohhh I can see cut flowers in them or clothes pins ;-)

  9. Great find Laurel. A bit envious I might add. ;) And you didn't even have to go to an Occasional Sale and pay a lot more for them either. Very cool!
    I could see a summer beach theme inside one of these. A collection of smooth rocks and drift wood with a nest, or shells, sand, etc. Natural elements..

  10. I don't know anything about them but they are going to be great to use for so many things! I think you got a great price too!
    I had to laugh when I saw your comment on my blog about using the mortise locks for shelves....it doesn't surprise me at all....we both have the same love of repurposing our junkin finds!!

  11. What a great find!! I LOVE the color and think you could do so many fun things with them. Adding a beautiful bunch of tulips would be my first pick.

  12. Hello! Love your glass too! I have never seen anything like those, so yes you gotta steal!
