Vintage Finds Galore!

Wow, what a fun morning! My #1 and I had our list of sales to go to but ended up going to just one. We stayed there for two and a half hours. Time flies when you're having fun!

This was one of those sales that doesn't come around very often, a real digger!

When we walked up the stairs we remembered we had been to the sale once before. The first time though the items were outside they weren't letting anyone in the house. This time they did! It was so fun.

I didn't think it was going to work out that way as the first item I spotted was an old wood cabinet with lots of drawers. I asked the lady inside what the price was and she asked me what I wanted to pay for it. I hate it when they say that! I told her $20.00. She said that sounded like a good price but that I needed to ask her brother outside. I really didn't want to haul the thing down the stairs if he wouldn't accept. We ended up toting it down anyway, only to find out he wouldn't take $20.00 but he wanted $100.00. Sorry, too rich for my blood!

Listen, Debbie, keep a smile on your face, there's more.

Well, we did end up finding so many wonderful things as we dug through box after box. Here are a few of the things I purchased. These first pictures are all the boxes covering my kitchen table.

After going through the boxes once again, I started to organize each of the items. Here are just a few of the items inside the boxes.

Yes, another dress form. Isn't she sweet! The vintage flouncy slip was another find at the sale.

Wow Debbie,

that looks like a really good sale. I went to a few garage sales yesterday and found a few cute things, but today was a stay at home, clean and spend time with family day.

Looks like you had a sucessful weekend, too! I love the sales when you can just keep shopping. I have a dress form just like that-did you see Lisa's (a thing for roses)? If I understand correctly, her "Millie" was like that and she took off the fabric and it was way cool underneath. I'm going to be stripping mine down soon...
