I hit the mother lode! {part 1}

You should have been there ladies!
I definitely hit the mother lode on Thursday!
My mother and I went to the local college rummage
sale that I wait anxiously for every year and did I ever
find the bargains! The first area I hit hard was the
vintage Christmas and did I ever load up.
{but that post is for next time}
We will start with the non- Christmas items.

Beautiful book called Edith Lyle's secret...1.00

gorgeous old glove box...2.00

It is missing part of the latch, but I don't care.
I love it!

a neat sign that will go in my booth

18 English garden magazines FREE

12 nests for I have to be creative. lol.

wooden finials for 20 cents and 30 cents
the tallest one is 19 inches high

tart tins 30 cents, silverplate spoon 5 cents,
salt shaker 5 cents, apothcary jar 50 cents

shabby chic book 1.50

lace and doilies 30 cents - 50 cents mostly

linen napkins 2.50
(they were $5.00 but got them at half off hour)

beautiful old lace hanky 1.00 (half price again)

satin jewelry box 10 cents

I have a feeling that some items missed being photographed,
but you get the idea. Just wait until you see my Christmas
goodies. Wendy Addison....umm hmm...

Oh I know it's wrong to be jealous but that's where I stand at this moment. Maybe next year we'll have to come down and Lyshie and I will go with you. Sounds like so much fun! You got so many beautiful finds! I LOVE the glove box!
