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.

Roosters on a pillow case?  Still cute, yes.

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.  



  1. If it makes you feel any better, Amy and I are still kicking ourselves for failing to notice that the vintage clothes were downstairs at the Friday sale!

    All your finds look great, especially the 20's-era knickers. (I love the tag that says "Another pair if they rip"! haha) And I'm still looking forward to seeing a picture of that flapper dress... ;)

    1. Ya I'm not sure about the dress now that I'm looking at it better. I'll have to have you look at it and tell me what you think. I'm not sure how old it it.

    2. Been there. Amy and I picked up an amazing "1940's" suit at an antique fair last month. Turns out it's actually from the 80's (and in ridiculously bad condition, no less!). I think we just *wanted* it to be from the 40's.
