One of the many vast vintage items I collect is vintage magazines. I love to thumb through all the old ads and pictures and discover new recipes. I also really enjoy the cover art. I like how some magazines have photos for cover art, like LIFE; and some have a more artistic take, like Ladies Home Journal. I think one of the biggest reasons I enjoy collecting vintage magazines is because they are relatively inexpensive and normally easy to come by. The last two estate sales I went to didn't have any vintage magazines, however there were many other great items up for grabs.
The sale I went to last weekend yielded the above; a beautiful painting ($2) and a vintage knitting bag ($4). The knitting bag has been on my list of things to look out for and the painting just kind of happened. I found it in the basement under a bunch of stuff and figured if the price was right I would buy it. I did get a few other items at the sale; some lovely linens, a super cute vintage apron, and some dishes -- something I can't seem to get enough of!! I sure do hope that I will have a lot of stage pace in my future kitchen and lots of dinner parties to make use of all these purchases!!
I went to a bag sale today and picked up a few items. The most exciting was four strips of vintage shelf edging in the most beautiful rose pattern. I also picked up a bag of vintage iron-on embroidery transfers for my mom and I to share. She has already picked out her favorites!
Hope you all had lovely weekends!
