I Need To Get Some Balls

For this.
It's probably not old.
But I can fix that.
1$ at the thrift store.
It was the only good thing I found, so I bought it.

Even if it doesn't have any balls.

Thanks for reading!

I have one of those and love it!!! It's vintage and cost more than a buck (I think it was 10 bucks at a little store in the country but it came with balls, yay). You can find those balls on etsy or ebay. Etsy has some cheap ones that are gray that would look great. There are wooden ones on ebay that are cheap. They're new but they don't look that different than mine. I would have snatched that up in a second too!

Wow- I thought you meant something entirely different by the heading...so you can see how my mind runs! lol I think those balls you can probably find online somewhere. Weren't they old Bingo balls? xxoo Diana

Hysterical---my sister constantly tells me to find some balls (I would be the timid one--ha,ha,ha). Anyway, this is a great find! I would have grabbed it too and you can fill it up with so many different things... corks, playing or post cards, large marbles. You'll do wonders!!!

hahaha....I thought my "rusty parts" was funny!

can't wait to see what you do with this, try ebay, or maybe golf balls or an eclectic set of balls for different sports. That would be pretty cool.

oh girl, I would have grabbed that in a minute at the thrift store. And might have knocked you down to get it. (After I had it, I'd help you up though, I'm nice that way.)
Can't wait to see what you do with it, balls or not. heehee

Great find...I love anything bingo...and the cages have such a great look!

Anita @ GoingALittleCoastal said...

Don't you just hate it when you don't have any balls? I have some numbered ceramic ones that I was just thinking of putting out myself. Ceramic ones might be a problem in the bingo cage though :)

cute! when i first saw it, i thought of a hamster wheel. But now i see it is for a raffle or bingo. Clever and unexpected - great find!

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

that is hilarious!!! and a great find, too!
i teach a class at the gym and we sometimes do ball squats and lunges. when we do i like to yell, "balls to the wall". it's just fun to say.

Great find since most of the bingo locations use the compressed air thing now! If you're willing to put a little work in, you can contact your local rotary club or bingo hall and see if they have an older set they are willing to get rid of. You may find a set (though not necessarily complete) for free or pretty close to it. Then just "antique" the balls with a bit of glaze.

What a cool find, with or without balls!

Ooh Suzanne I've ALWAYS wanted one of these....If you DON'T manage to find numbered balls you could always stick vintage childrens blocks in there....??

Hope you're having an AWESOME week Lovey....!!
