More vintage goodies from Alameda

A couple weeks ago, we visited the Alameda antiques market again. We got there early enough to actually walk around all the booths! I can attest that the prices go down at the end of the day--I got some silver plated serving spoons for $5 each, originally marked $18.50 each, and a cute plastic sewing thread carousel for $5! It was not a good day for crocheted bargains, but I picked up several Japanese-style wooden boxes and a vintage toy "ray gun" that shoots light when you pull the trigger!
