Now onto the junk!
This is a pretty amazing assortment of vintage glassware that I got at an estate sale recently. All from one sale and all 50 cents or less. The Swanky Swig was a quarter!
My next house is going to have to have a library if Maddie keeps on collecting vintage books. I found her this bell cookie cutter at Value Village in an assorted bag of plastic junky ones.
More amazingly cute vintage cards.
I picked up these Putz houses from the booth that was going out of business that I mentioned in my last post. I think I am going to add a couple of bottle brush trees and spun cotton snowmen to make them a little more interesting. Oh, and maybe some mercury glass beads around the roofline. (Yeah, this will probably never happen).
I went to an estate sale in a manufactured home park down the road from my son's school last week. The former owners were dealers so I thought the pricing might be a little high but I still wanted to check it out. There was a shed in the back that was turned into the cutest little craft studio (but not nearly as swoon-worthy as Magpie Ethel's). There were a ton of beautiful handmade wreaths but the kind that you can go to Michael's and learn how to make. Nothing vintage. I spotted the telltale look of a box of Shiny Brite's toward the back underneath one of the tables. It was part of a small pile and I grabbed them all.
So none of these boxes were priced and when I asked I was told that the large boxes were $3 apiece and the smaller box was $4 because "the smaller boxes are worth more". Uh, ok. Even if they are missing ornaments? This ignited an argument between the two ladies working the sale. Evidently the other lady thought this was a ridiculous price for an incomplete box of "old ornaments" and threw it in for free.
I am going to have to get a bigger tree this year.
