Here's the rest of Saturday's garage sale and flea market (from yesterdays post)...I don't know why my pictures are fuzzy....they look great when I Photoshop them but then when I get them on blogger they look fuzzy!
3 lovely vintage tablecloths...2 at $4 each and 1 at $7
A beautiful white vase marked Abingdon, a little creamer form the flea market from Germany and an old bow tie in the box from the garage sale...from $2 to $5
A pink chiffon purse form a little girls "coketail" party. The invitation, flowers and pink velvet hair bow were all inside.
This is exactly what I needed to go along with my $5 pink prom dress posted here.
2 round linen table cloths with crochet edgings are underneath.
A beautifully embroidered Redwork with expertly crocheted trim, it has a few light spots and I can't tell if it's faded or a variegated thread...but it's still so beautiful. I'd like to hang it above my bed.
The design is me all the way...early to bed for sure...and the branches and flowers. It's exactly what I would pick if I had 100 different designs to choose from.
I love this most...a linen table runner with the prettiest design I've seen yet.
Those pink clusters are solid french knots! And the colors are to die for....
An old beaded purse that has seen it's better days but for $2! Look at the tip of the clasps...they glow in the light.
A cotton crochet heavy bedspread that is coming apart at the seams.
Now I understand what the 4 pieces of crochet were intended to be when I made that giant crochet rose posted here.
They pieced a bedspread together using the crochet strips and cotton....the wide crochet is like giant insertion lace. Then they edged the entire thing with the crocheted scalloped lace.
The lace is hand sewn onto the cotton and I can remove it and make another giant white rose using the scalloped crochet!!! It was 5 bucks!!!
From the flea market I found this tall wicker hamper...I think it's a hamper..with a little neutral stain I can brighten up the wood. For some strange reason I just love this thing even though it's a little shabby.
And a small basket.
A cool wire paper basket with little springs on each corner...why? I don't think they show up very well here.
We think the foot stool may have been used in a passenger car of a train?
I had to have the shell backed child's rocker!!! Mr. Wild will sand blast it and paint it a nice color
A couple of guys were selling mums that were at their peak for $2 each or 3 for $5...I started with one and came home with 3!
A wicker basket and a beautiful crochet piece...yes that's the back of the price tag but I kind of like it there and was thinking of stamping something on it.
A cloths line winder for dirt cheap, the sugar bag and the perfect pink pillow ticking came from the garage sale.
All of these treasures were not pricey. I don't buy it if it's too much unless I just cannot live without it. I try to be frugal at sales and I truly have more fun finding a bargain. But it's terribly addicting so it adds up anyway!
Someday, when I'm old and ready to unload some things I'll start selling it but for now I just want to enjoy it all.
Thanks for stopping by to look at my 'junk'!
Just when I finished posting and walked away this guy was perched on the top of the open window and flew to the tree so I grabbed my camera for this pileated woodpecker.
