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!! :)
