And, of course, I saw lots I liked and, of course, I went to the sale. It was run by a great estate sale company -- really friendly and relaxed (as opposed to frazzled and crabby, as some of them are). Everything was priced, there were plenty of workers to answer questions and the prices were fair to both the sellers and the buyers, so it was a pleasure to shop.
I met one of Bargain Hunter's Facebook friends there, too (who, I found out also reads my blog). That was a fun bonus...it's always nice to meet new vintage shoppers!
I came home with plenty of cool stuff -- mostly linens and kitchen stuff, but also a mix of good things for the booth and for etsy.
Here are the highlights...
|A chenille doll bed cover, a blue chenille bathroom rug and the primary striped throw is a baby bed size -- perfect for snuggle time!|
|A french provincial musical jewelry box, a large quilted hatbox (it's hard to see it with the pillow inside of it) and a pillow made from a chenille bedspread|
|This photo doesn't do justice to the soft aqua blue of this quilt and the cool polka dotted accent fabric. It's frayed and worn, but I think this sweetie has to stay with me (at least for a while)|
|I love this peachy lap quilt and yo-yo pillow|
|A set of Cory 'his and hers' individual carafes, a pretty iris tin and what looks like a Fiesta Go-Along vase, spooner or flower pot (Bargain Hunter will know if this is true). The stripes are certainly Fiesta colors|
|It's hard to see what this is, but it's an old metal wall-mounted shaving mirror. And an ice bag with original box|
|Brookpark Melmac Thanksgiving platter and Made in Japan turkey salt & peppers|
|Such a sweet painted and embroidered nursery picture and a Plaskool tray puzzle "Let Us Set the Table"|
|And of course, how could I pass up a pincushion, a bank or some postcard folders?|
|These yellow kitchen chairs are near-mint! Look at the great detailing on the back|
Thanks again, Bargain Hunter, for the heads-up!
