Sweet Finds!

What a fun week-end! I was able to get out and find some vintage treasures.

The first place I like to hit in a house is the basement or the upstairs, I mean way upstairs.

It seems like that's where the real treasures are found or at least where I find mine. I think things that become old are thrown in the basement or put up in the attic. I know that is where I'd put them. It's probably a good thing I don't have a basement or an attic.

The above picture are some old millinery flowers that I was able to pick up this week-end.


After we got home we started unloading the truck. Everything ended up in the entryway so I thought I'd just take a quick picture before putting it all away.

We picked up a few tables this week-end as well as the fun old cabinet shown.


I picked up this great box of vintage cards. Don't you just love the artwork on old cards! So sweet!

I'll have to bundle some up and take them to Monticello.

We were able to go back again today for some half price buying!

That's always fun.

While waiting in line I got to meet Julie and Christa from Kindred Spirit Soap Co. and Kindred Roses .

We didn't get a lot of time to talk as the doors opened and everyone went scurrying about looking for great deals. They did end up with a stash of sweet finds though! So be sure to stop by their blog and say, "Hi". and see what they've been up to.

It's always fun to make contact with other blogging buddies!


I don't sell a lot of vintage clothing but these vintage dresses were in wonderful pastel colors, perfect for Spring!

And they were half off so I picked them up.


Isn't that the sweetest bow on the back of this dress!


I saw this vintage doll head on Saturday and wanted to buy it but just didn't want to pay what they were asking for it. Today half price! Yippee!

Thank you for stopping by and looking at what I found this week-end.
