Last weekend I went to a total of 5 sales and bought something from 4 of them. They were pretty spread out across my area so I probably spent more time driving then at the actual sales. Plus, every single one of them was in the country which are always good sales, at least for me.
Books for Miss Maddie
Books for me:-)
Isn't this a clever way to store ornaments, in strawberry containers?
I am not a big fan of the Shenandoah pattern but I don't think these bowls were ever used and for 2 bucks I would have been crazy to pass them up.
I normally stay away from vintage green glass. I collect the Jeannette Doric pattern of depression glass in pink but this little green pitcher really caught my eye. It's perfect and I love the color! Does anybody know anything about it? The shortening can will be part of my Summer/4th of July decor and I have been wanting one of these old door knobs forever but never have found one at a price I was willing to pay. You can bet I was willing to pay $2.00 for this one.
I got all of these things at an estate sale that actually started about 3 hours prior. There wasn't a whole lot left but I did manage to snag everything in the picture. I'm bummed I didn't get to the sale earlier because I paid a whopping $6.50 for the aqua pottery vase, vintage wastebasket, rooster juice glass, orphan bird shaker, and strawberry dish towel. Oh well, at least there were some things left for me.
At the last sale of the day, I picked up some holiday postcards. I have quite a few vintage flower frogs (you know, the spiky ones) and these are great to display with them.
I got Maddie a jar of colorful buttons. One of these days, maybe she will actually do something with them!
This is the second thermos that I have come across that I've really liked in the past several weeks. Every time I see these, I'm reminded of Stacey from The Gluten Free Pastor's Wife. She likes to display them on her porch during the holidays. Well along with my 4th of July one, I now have one for Christmas!
Not too bad of a haul for only 4 sales plus there was Pyrex so I really can't complain! I'll be back at it after I drop Maddie off at school Friday morning. Wish me luck and also send some good luck Hanna's way that she will actually have sales to go to in Astoria!
Linking up with Jann over at Share Your Cup Thursday.
Until next time.....
