Yesterday my neighbor ask me if I wanted to go with her to a yard sale and of course I went. Even though I wasn't going to another yard sale this year.
So we got in her new Mercedes LOL and away we went . It's so funny driving up to a yard sale in a Mercedes. ( just doesn't fit the pictures) ya know what I mean?
Anyway I had a ball first sale we went to was all vintage items a girl was selling Grandma's old clothes and dishes. We didn't go till about 9:30 am and ya know that is 2 hours after sales starts. I always wanted to be there soon as they open. However I got some good things for other people.
That is what I said I'm a picker. I got these old vintage dresses look like new one still has the original price tag on it. I would say early 1960's.
Look at those buttons I love the rhinestone middle
Now these I know a girl who wants them for her second kitchen. she is doing a 50's kitchen in the lower level of her home. ( because her husband doesn't like old treasures. I would say doesn't appreciate days of old so I suggested she do the great room kitchen all in turquoise like she wants( I am marriage counselor also )LOLOLOLOL
it was so cute and she had it in her trash pile. I made over it and said you just can't throw this away I will use it in my studio and
put material and big bolts of thread in it . So I got it
If I don't decide to keep it I will take it to the flea market when I set up again. Thinking out loud that is where it needs to go ( I forgot I am downsizing) I just couldn't stand to see it go in the city trash truck coming
This little pink scarf was awful cute I thought with the dancing girls all in a row
After Sanela brought us home in her new silver Mercedes that I want , anyway I drove down to Lake of the Ozarks Home Goods store and out of town I stopped at this high end estate sale of a lady I know who always just does the best sales.
While just looking to get my fix of elegant vintage real antiques I went into one of the bedrooms, that is my second favorite room at estate sales the clothes are just wonderful the old hand bags shoes and always mink coats which darling I don't need another.
anyway down on the floor in their new box never worn was these , my size marked $120.00 , didn't pay that price of course. My new around the house shoes
Dresses $1.00 each
Baby basket $2.00
Metal orange chair $.25 one quarter
Turquoise set of Texas ware dishes $3.00
Pin cushions $.25 one quarter each
Cocoa cola ruler $.25 one quarter

Then I just had to have another set of my Mom's silver ware it's Coronation silver plate from 1947 . That is what the box label said however my Mom got married in 1957. I will get the silver polish out . I wanted this set for the soup spoons. My sister has Mom's original wedding set and I bought me a set just adding to it . I bought it on line from Ross Simons jewelers. soon as I seen it in their catalog I wanted it .
