Junkin' in Goliad, Texas ~

Hi guys!
I have a few junkin items to share with you but one of them I'm really excited about.
  It is the star of the show~

This is a No.2 Kodak Trimming Board
manufactured by Eastman Kodak Company
Rochester. N.Y.
U.S.A.
It is approximately 7" X 7".  I believe it was to trim negatives with.  The
 gentleman I purchased it from had no idea what it was used for.  He did tell
me he bought in Colorado and wasn't sure he wanted to sale it.
   I then asked him for for a discount :)
He priced it at $30.00 and I paid $27.00.

A real find in my opinion.  If anyone has any information I would be interested :)

I have a"thing" for STARS. I have them all over the place.
 This one was $7.00.  And like I said I have a a "thing" for STARS~
so I bought these too~

These are from the same shop that the trimmer was purchased in. 
Goliad, Texas
$3.00 for 10 milk caps
I will share some milk caps with 3 people ~just tell me what you would use them
 for. If you are not interested no problem :) 
********************************
Thanks for stopping by~
see ya soon

  2. You always find some fun things. On a mini Valentine wall hanging I used the milk cap as the "O". I made Christmas ornaments with a milk cap in the center of a star and I've used them on a scrapbook page. I just love the touch of vintage they provide!

    2. Great finds. When someone challenges me about finding out things about a vintage item I love to search. I found an detailed advertisement printed in January 1914 in Photographic Times. It was used to cut their photos. Their concern (from skimming through) was that many of their dealers were cutting their photos roughly and even said it looked like some where being cut with a pocket knife. So this was an attempt to control quality (my opinion) and create uniformity. Here's the link...scroll down and you will find it. https://books.google.com/books?id=8PDNAAAAMAAJ&pg=PA73-IA2&lpg=PA73-IA2&dq=what+year+where+the+no+2+kodak+trimming+board+Eastman+Kodak+Company+Rochester+NY&source=bl&ots=oJpm97GpFe&sig=dPoQA9wd8EWEE0uSUfcoVKIaqnQ&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjN4qqNlfzTAhXLQCYKHTW4DrkQ6AEIYTAF#v=onepage&q=what%20year%20where%20the%20no%202%20kodak%20trimming%20board%20Eastman%20Kodak%20Company%20Rochester%20NY&f=false
