Wordless Wednesday (projector)

An old Amprosound Projector.  It came with the house... what to do w/it, I don't know.  :)
Do you have anything old just sitting around your house?

  1. We have a desk that's sitting in the garage...not really a desk. I think it's supposed to play some sort of game, but it's broken down and stands as something to keep things on :)

    That is an interesting projector.

    I think I'd like one for movie nights at our house since we do not go to the theatres.

  3. That's so neat!! We actually have an antique Koken Barber Chair that was left in the basement of our house by the old owners. It was too heavy for them to move and now we don't know what to do with it lol.

  6. Too bad you don't have anything you can play on there. MY husband had a ton of childhood film that I think would work on there (If that's what I think it is) but he trashed it as a child so I'll never be able to see them.

    1. Oh my gosh, I feel like a jerk in saying when we moved in I trashed all of the projector slides. They were in a closet on a shelf (the only thing in the room) and I had no idea at the time they went to something in the basement storage that was left behind. I'm sure someone in their family would have wanted those slides. Too late to look back now, though I wish I had thought to ask.

  7. Very interesting, I like to collecting things like that.

    1. The second person to post they have an old barber chair. Cool!

  9. That's really neat! I'm not sure what you could do with it though? I don't have anything old laying around here, but when my inlaws pass away, the new home owners are getting a piano with the house. It's been down there for YEARS. We have tried giving it away many times. People seem very interested in getting a free piano until they learn they are responsible for getting it up a flight of basement stairs. Then it's a no go lol.

    1. I was hoping someone would feel that way about a pool table when we were looking for houses, but alas we didn't buy one w/one already in place. Dang it.

  10. That is really cool! My house was new construction so nothing was left behind. I actually prefer older homes but I am dealing.

    1. If it's copper someone would probably run over to your house to buy it. ;)

    1. That is kind weird looking, I would not have thought it was a projector. We have a cassette player and tape deck. And we still have the tapes that fit both.n Thank you for stopping by to hook up on Wordless Wednesday. I see you every where, lol
      Have a great day!

  13. We had an old projector that we just ended up throwing out because no one wanted it. I guess old is old... including myself.

  18. that is pretty cool.
    do you have any film you could watch on it?

    1. We would have if I hadn't trashed it. No clue they went together...I had main floor duty, hubby took storage (when we moved in and were cleaning up). That film was the only thing in a bedroom and like a dummy I threw it away (instead of seeing if someone in their fam. wanted it!). *sigh*

  19. Rosey, I am not even sure what this is?☺ But I have learned as I age, don't throw away anything vintage! I wish I had a great idea for you but I don't. One day something will come to you when you least expect it. I don't have anything old laying around because we have moved to much. Then I am sad later when I want to use it but I had to give it away at the last move. BTW...you leave such endearing comments on my blog and it is VERY much appreciated my friend!

  23. How neat is that? I wish I still had my dad's. What I do have is my dad's films that I would need a projector to play them, but about 10 yrs. ago I had all of them put on a DVD & thank God because they are starting to crack. Thanks for sharing that's so neat. Oh I just thought I just did mine to on a Wednesday I think it was I have a view master.

  24. I love old things. I have a mask in the kitchen that belonged to my Great Aunt and Uncle. It was originally used to hold string or twine. People used to not have twisty ties or rubber bands. I use it for it's purpose. I rarely need string though.

  25. I don't think that we have anything old left but I'm curious to see what you end up doing with this.

    If you have not done so yet, you are welcome to share/link via our WWHop: http://www.craftyspices.com/hops/wwhop

  26. hi Rosey! I haven't met you yet, but I learned from sweet Theresa that I should meet you. Thank you for zipping to my site. Would you mind coming back and seeing today's post? I linked to a site and didn't hit "publish" after and I have been away from my comp for a few hours getting errands and grocery stuff done. Come back and everyone is commenting on Monday's post? Doh! OMYGosh!!!

    My recommendation would be so sell it at a vintage line online or to a shop in your town/community. Thank you for your visit!

    1. Theresa's about as sweet as it gets, isn't she? She's always running around doing nice things (like telling people to come visit my site). :)

    1. It's been in the basement a few years (and who knows how long before that) so it could use a good cleaning. We have a museum north of us who might be interested, I think I'll give it a check.
