Some Recent Finds

In order to try and catch up and put away and organize all my recent finds, I thought I'd share some of my favorites that were found over the last month. I was a busy girl this October; two flea markets, many garage sales and estate sales. I was checking out craigslist last night and came across two promising estate sales for Saturday! Anyways, on to the stuff!!
I got this set of six napkins at the last flea market I went to. As I was ironing them, I decided that I would how on to them for a while until I made up my mind as to if I really want to keep them or not.
I was sooooo thrilled when I found this coat. This lady was having a really nice yard sale of mostly vintage items and had a few coats like this. I liked this one the best and it was only $20.00!! I went to my favorite dry cleaners and they did the whole coat --fur and all-- for only $8.00. So the whole thing cost me less than $30.00 which is much cheaper than buying a new winter coat!!
These are the few button cards that I have kept. The rest that I have found, which have been many lately, have gone over to the booth.

This was my splurge at the last flea market I went to. I really liked it and it was at the second booth we stopped at. I decided that if it was still there when I went to leave, it would come home with me. I talked the lady down to $20.00. She said that she thought the table was from the turn of the century but I think its a little newer than that. Any thoughts?? My mom went with me to this flea market too!! See her finds HERE.
I have been wanting a window like this for a lonnnnng time. I was sooo excited when the lady had the price of $7.50 on it. I don't know whether I am going to hang it up or make a table out of it.


These boxes of vintage ornaments haven't made their way to the booth yet. I am waiting till November 1st to put out all my Christmas stuff that I have been putting together.

I am so glad today is Friday! I had a busy week at school and next week at school is going to be just as busy, but I am going to try and get a lot of my homework done tonight so I won't be so busy this next week. And maybe I'll be able to get some of my sewing projects done!! :)

The more I look at the coat, the more I like it. Maybe I can borrow it someday....like in a year! Love you, kiddo.

I have a piano stool like yours, only mine is darker wood. And yes, I actually used it with my piano! Now I have it in the house (no longer have a piano...:-(

Absolutely LOVE your pretty blue coat!! My vintage coats are my favorites - in fact, I will never buy new; not only do I not need one, but I like the old ones better anyway. I was lucky to find a lovely brown one with a fur collar at a thrift store last year for $12. Your blue on is just beautiful.

Love everything you found!! I tried the link to your Mom's items, but it didn't work. May be a problem on my end.

I bought a vintage swing coat yesterday. My first coat purchase. I am going to list minethough and not keep it. You can emial me at monkeybox@juno.com about the molds if you still want them (I just got your most recent comment). I do like the jingle bell tablecloth, so if you want molds (I have loads of aprons too), email me!

What a cute coat! You'll look so fashionable in it this winter. And that window is SO awesome--and what a great price!

I'm so glad I found your blog link again through Jen's blog. I lost your link and I was trying to find LivinG vintage with no luck! LOL I put you in my bloglines so now I won't lose you again. :)

Love the old window. I've been wanting one to put on my mantle for holiday decorating but haven't come across the right one yet.

Amy said...

Now I think I want a window for the living room...what do you think?
