Hit an estate sale today and found some great stuff. Most everything bought was close to $1 each. Lots more not pictured, but these are my favorites.

Congrats on a great find! I have boxes of 12 gage shells that are over 50 years old but they just pretty much look the same as the shells today. Yours at least look old

That Hornet ammo is for a M4 Survival Rifle. I hope you snagged that too!

Oh, the box of bullets that you can see the 3 bullets are 38 cal Rimfire ammo. Didn't have the box top with that one unfortunately.

Also got some very nice antique fishing lures, couple in original box.

I went to an estate sale yesterday and found some paper shotgun shells. Where was the estate sale you went to?

This one was in Rockwall not far from the movie theater by the lake. A really nice gated community. I was expecting high prices but there were lots of cheap great deals.

Neat finds. The only estate sale I've been to was not in a great location and was high priced crap.

Thanks. Not selling these, going in my display. I really like the Marbles package as well. Im always on the lookout for Marbles brand stuff and this is the first MArbles anything Ive ever found. Looking online, I can find these match boxes that came in a little box but cant find the package like this one. Any idea on age?

Interesting finds. That watch brought on some kind of flashback as I swear I've seen one of those before when I was a kid.
