Nice Haul

I picked up a nice haul on Saturday.  I even woke up late and wasn't first in line! (or I should say 4th), but way back in line with maybe 20 people in front of me.  I still ended up with some great vintage dresses, vintage unused pillow cases, barkcloth fabric drapes, vintage fabric and a few other tidbits.  It was a very fun sale and I wish more were like this one.

This dress has nice details on the pockets and collar.

Love the paisley crepe fabric on this one!

Fabulous beaded collar.

Double knit fabric dress.

Green eyelet lace dress!

Three different types of barkcloth fabric.


Tiki print!

Autumn leaf print

With Drug Room penned on the back of each one.  I laughed at that one at first thinking the old lady who lived there must have had some kind of groovy drug room in the 60's  Then I remembered the ad had mentioned there were old glass pharmaceuticals so she must have either been some kind of doctor or worked for one, and these drapes simply hung in the office where they kept the drugs and not a room filled with trippy lava lamps, neon posters and bean bag chairs. 
Awesome satin Hollywood souvenir pillow case!

Sweet groovy fabric

Pretty pink pillow cases

Barkcloth purse

Kitschy red toaster cover

The full haul

May's Favorite Find

I have been too busy to post much lately, and heading for vacation in a day so I want to get May's Favorite Find in before July rolled around.

Aerolux Light Co. was a manufacturer of artful gas-discharge light bulbs from the 1930s through the 1970s.  The metal sculptures inside were coated with phosphors and glow like neon. 

These bulbs each have a different flower inside that glows.  Aerolux also made ones with animals, religious crosses, Christmas figures and others.  What a cool find!
