Vintage Hungarian Lock

I found a new hospital thrift shop that is conveniently located on my way home from work and popped in to have a look the other day. A couple of interesting finds were my reward for rummaging.

I purchased this old vintage lock noted "Made in Hungary". It had it's Army and Navy Department store sticker on its box. I don't have much use for this but I couldn't put it back on the shelf after seeing the nice shape of the keys. The volunteer working behind the counter told me that someone donated a huge case of these little keys and everyone that has been coming in has picked up one or two of them. The low price of a dollar doesn't hurt either.

There was also a perfect condition Avocado coloured Pyrex Divided Dish for $3 which will come in handy in the kitchen. It fits perfectly into our Breville countertop oven - a wedding registry splurge!


  1. Why do I love the Hungarian lock so much?
    P.S. Your house looks remarkably clean. I'm jealous. Or lazy.

  2. Heh, Thanks Erin! I think I just avoid taking photos of the messy parts. :)

  3. That's cool! I speak Hungarian, so I'm pretty jealous of this find :)
