I haven't had much luck at the VofA over the past several weeks but my luck changed last Sunday. You already know I adore those old satin dresser trays and was lucky enough to find two. I also got a little rayon seam binding and some interesting jewelry, including a rosary.
My favorite find was the two frilly little LUX soap "baskets". They are so pretty and brought back memories I hadn't thought of in years. I think they must have been made in the 1960s or early 1970s. I can remember some of my mother's friends making little "fishies" from the oval LUX soap cakes covered in pastel netting. They gave the bathroom such a lovely fragrance! I wonder if they even sell LUX soap anymore?? These are just adorable and went straight to my Etsy store where they can give someone else an awwwww moment.
