Estate Sale!

I went to an estate sale this Saturday. Well actually, it was carried out like a garage sale. They are very few and far between around here; I usually find one per year. Here is what I picked up:

This is a Stratton No.2 lipstick compact. Sadly the lipstick tube seems to be missing. It's just an empty cap.

I also found this fan lace girdle by OTC.

And a jar of very old buttons. The black shank with the silver stripe might be Bakelite! I did the rub and sniff test and it definitely smells like something. But I have no Bakelite experiences to compare it to. So I'm just not sure. And that giant green button nearly covers the palm of my hand. It's HUGE!
