Saturday Yard Sale finds

Today was a hit & miss I do believe . I didn't think I found much till we got home and I laid it all out on my bench out front , before I brought it all in the house.
I found two items I am crazy about and the rest well maybe a friend or two will take a few items?

First I went to a neighbors house sale and bought a big box of sewing items, I bought it unopened just hoping there would be some buttons in the box and there is but nothing to brag about . The box was $5.00, lots metal zippers and lace binding , thread etc


 Then another neighbor sale 2 blue bowls , the trim was in the box of sewing notions

Mt favorite find !!!!!!!any old tin box  full of old vintage lace I love this lace, at first I thought it was over priced then after I counted how many pieces I have it's not over priced. I bought it at the Methodist church sale


This is a poster framed I thought I could hang in my studio powder room however a friend buys old perfume bottles for her powder room she may want this and that is what I was thinking of when I purchased it . Jo ??


      two long glittery scarfs, a grey one and black one   and an old white velvet hat


feed sack

The tablecloth, feed sack , picture frame and old plate I gave $1.25 , lady was closing her sale

I like this old plate even though it has a big crack across it    

green lamp base $1.00

These are large shells , I added them to my tray setting on my front porch $1.00 each, people said they picked them up in St Petersburg Florida, they had them laying all in their flower beds

I like this old tin 50 cents and all the scissors was in the sewing box of items 

Flower pot , green flour sifter , syrup , ice pick, and bottle stopper , meat hammer , coke bottle opener, hat box , ice cream scoop,  where I bought these items the man gave me a galvanized bucket I didn't get it in the picture

Two bottles unopened of Arbone hand lotion and a basket birthday candles , even had my next birthday number in it 39 LOL, got these at the church sale
$1.00 for this bracelet with all the stones


An apron I bought for another friend , it was priced $2.00 I gave $1.00 for it  washed ironed and on an hanger


    There is a little cardboard suitcase and some old tins you can't see , also a cradle shaped basket the old lace is in. I had a good haul I think now that I look at it. Better than any flea market I have been to and I spent $41.00 today , I kept count this time . Now I am going out to eat crab legs with a friend tonight


Buttons that was in the sewing box

It was a fun morning and I didn't think I found anything  LOL

Well now I have to get all these treasure tucked away so I don't look like a hoarder LOL
