Yesterday, my beau and I went to an antiques show in Southfield, MI. It was kind of a bust...everything was priced super high. I was really interested in adding some bakelite to my collection but I was not willing to pay the $100+ price tags. Sometimes I wonder if these dealers don't realize that with places like eBay and etsy (the internet in general), people can get items for much, much less than what they are asking. The bakelite I am wearing here I found at an estate sale and only paid $1 each. Definitely one of the best deals I have gotten this estate sale season! Anyways, the day wasn't a complete loss, I did find two things to take home with me that were very reasonable!
Jesse (my beau) spotted this for me. He knows how much I love The Wizard of Oz and thought I would like this. It's a color-by-number coloring book that has never been colored in. I am going to scan in the images so the little girl I am a nanny for can color some of the fun images. I probably will end up sharing some on my blog too, so you vintage mamas out there can enjoy these as well. I paid less than $2 more than the original 59 cent price tag.
I was really excited to find these, since I have been looking for one for a long time. I bought them from a sweet old lady who loved my bakelite that I was wearing. She let me have both of them for only $8! I plan on keeping one and sharing the other one with my mom. These little pin cushions remind me of Cinderella's shoes..... just love them!!
