Really interesting assortment of finds congrats. Hope there’s something left for me to find in January :lol but just being able to walk around exploring a ghost town would be great.

Congrats on some really awesome finds !

Looks like most of those 'suspender clips' are hosiery supporters. So I'm envisioning a bunch of ladies with their stockings around their ankles.

I wonder if TonyAZ stumbled across the remains of a hosiery shop...
