Here's what I bought -- some destined for Etsy and some just for ME! Can you guess what I'm keeping?
|Yet ANOTHER book about the Queen's coronation (I'd been watching this one a while) It's titled 'Great Events of the Royal Year 1953' has shots of all sorts of interesting things; it's like a 1953 time capsule|
|The Royals' version of Brad & Angelina -- celebs to be watched...|
|Queen Alexandra's Gift Book -- she was Queen Elizabeth II's great-grandmother. |
This book is filled with 'photographs from my camera'
|It was given to a little girl as a reward for 'regular & punctual attendance' -- lucky her!|
|Apparently, Queen Alexandra took these pictures with her little camera herself -- I know, it's nerdy (but cool!)|
|A sweet turquoise & white cream & sugar -- I have no idea who made them (do you?)|
|This 1950s-1960s lunch box -- I just LOVE it!|
|It belonged to Elizabeth -- I like that a lot because that was my mother's name. I wish I knew who this Elizabeth was! I'm going to leave the labels on, for sure|
|A little 'Japan' figurine and bird salt & peppers. They have noise makers in them like Holt Howard cats but, as usual, they no longer work. Aren't they cute?|
I'd been watching this little silhouette advertising wall hanging for weeks and was always worried that it would be gone. It was given as a gift by a gas station. I just think it's one of the sweetest things I've seen in a long time! It's tiny -- only 5" across.
This was my BIG splurge (I justified it by saying it was for the house) -- a coral red chair from the 1940s or 50s. As soon as I saw the square button, I was hooked.
|It looks fantastic in the living room!|
|A Better Homes & Gardens Sewing Book from the 1960s|
Now I've got to go check out the weekend's sales. My niece is coming for a girl's weekend and we're hoping to find some good ones! Happy thrift shopping to you, too!
