Last Weekend Sales
I went to two sales last weekend. The first was on Friday, and it was early and close, so of course I went. The first things I search for at sales is vintage clothing so I always head to the bedrooms. I just happened to turn my head and see a closet with clothes in it out of the corner of my eye. I got a 2 50's vintage dresses, a coat, a suit and a cute Juniorette hat by Mr. John with original hat box and tags. The upstairs didn't have anything clothing wise except children's and it wasn't anything special. But I did find some embroidered pillow cases which I have a major weakness for.
White on white embroidery...so pretty
Roosters on a pillow case? Still cute, yes.
Deep purple cala lilies
And check these out! I have never seen early movie stars embroidered on pillowcases before. I love these! I'm going to have a hard time selling them...maybe I'll keep them.
On Saturday morning I went to a sale that advertised vintage Christmas ornaments which I am collecting for a project of mine. I got some nice chippy ones with nice patterns.
Then I found a pile of these little boys knickers from the 20's. I love when I find unexpected items. I think they should sell well. I love the old labels on them.
All in all it was a good weekend. Except for the sale I missed that I planned on going to, but didn't. I'm still sick about missing it. I heard there was some good stuff there. But I can't talk about it anymore, I have to put it out of my mind and move on.
