ebay scavenging...

Spent some time today poking around Ebay looking for things to use in the house. Thought I'd share these with you -- but there are plenty, plenty more.




Large Shell Casings
I'm not sure what you would do with these, but I thought they were neat. Bud vases, perhaps?




Antique Switch Plate

Just the switch part, without the cover plate, costs $35 new... so far this is a steal. And way cool. I'm going to bid on it for my hallway.

Also worth checking out is this Lightning Rod -- I can't get an image, and I can't tell if it's antique or not from the description, but it does look pretty unique.

You can also get brand new Push Button Light Switches.
They are less expensive than the one one eBay, and guaranteed to work.
By buying new, you also make sure that you are getting matching plates.

I manage an old house website and lots of our members own Victorians and there are a huge amount of resources that would supply SteamPunk designers. http://www.oldhouseweb.com/

if my memory don't fail me and I still keep my Generic Viagra look to indentify bullets, those are Winchester rifle rounds, someones of the same come with a little decoration in the shell.
