I also went to the Lifeway Christian Bookstore because I needed some more secret sister cards for the year. While there I always check the clearance aisle and I got several things. Then I went next door to the shoe store and found some $90 ankle-height boots marked down to $34 and I had a $10 rewards coupon. CHA CHING!
Then I stopped at the Goodwill in that area and found another box. I did some Googling and discovered it to be a vintage Italian Florentine Wooden Gilt box. While researching the box, I happened upon a similar item to a thrift store item I showed you already. It, too, is vintage (mid-century 1900's) Italian Florentine and is a small gilt tray. I know I have seen other items like these at the thrifts before but never really paid any mind to them! I believe I have found something new to collect! Here are some close-up pictures of the box and the tray.

|Inside of the box is very plain.|
|This sticker is on the underneath side which is what helped me to identify the box in my web surfing.|

I'm still trying to figure out the heart-shaped box.
Have a GREAT weekend!
