No, not the BIG one, but our little county has its own annual
longest yard sale...joined in by individuals, churches, community
groups, shops, clubs and even the local art school. I look forward to it
with excitement each year because who knows what treasures
there are to be found "in our own back yards", so to speak.
I forgot to take photos of the sales along the way, too busy treasure hunting
and buzzing from sale to sale. So.....I'm just going to show you my stash.
First the linens, a beautiful flowered tablecloth that is hard to see
underneath everything. :) A small fruit design tablecloth
and 2 tea towels, pretty herbs & shamrocks ~ Irish linen.
See the pretty old flowers print? I think I like the frame
even more than the print.
Enamel bowl and Fire King mugs.
Cool mid-century looking candle holders, unmarked.
Vintage cookie cutters, and butterfly and bird design cards.
Halloween nesting dolls by Lillian Vernon & a few large rubber stamps.
See the plastic red teapot in the back? It's a hanging plaque
with S & P shakers that sit in. Cute oldie!
Found this large stainless bowl by IKEA.
6 dessert plates ~ Poppy Trail by Metlox. Had to bring home some jewelry,
wooden bracelet, vintage pin, copper ring.
A better look at the funky mugs. Don't know if they are "keep or sell" yet.
Love the old packaging. The Blue Willow cup mats say:
"There is always a slip between the cup and the lip.
There should be a MAT between the cup the saucer."
They were made in England.
Scary pumpkin man nesting dolls close-up. BOO!
These are so great.
How cute are these? Even a horse, lion, fish & Scottie dog.
Except for 2 plastic the rest of the 40+ spools are wooden.
Couldn't resist this basketful.
Aye yi yi ~ a tin full of vintage buttons.
& second container of buttons still on the cards.
I spent less than $30 on everything and am quite pleased with that. :)
Whew, and that's not all. We hit our local flea this morning (yeah,
I know) and brought home a few things I'll show later.
Did you hit any sales & find any treasures? Between the sales and the
garden I haven't had much blog reading time, and hope to come visit you
and catch up soon. Have a terrific week!
