This is a long post, dear friends, because I had a red-letter junking day on Saturday. I hit a digger estate sale, two church rummage sales and the VOA. The benevolent junking overlords were smiling down on me at each stop.
I haven't tried on the screaming yellow and orange top to see if I should bother washing it yet. If it works out, I will be easy to spot in a crowd! The pink and green panels on the right are lace yardage. Look closely and you can see a set of two clear Lucite Christmas triptych-type screens. I think one of them may have stay with me!
The Old Farmer's Almanac is from 1977, the year my eldest son was born. I thought he would get a kick out of reading it.
I never, EVER, find old gummed stickers until I hit this mother lode. There are hundreds and they are scattered all over my desk as I type. They are sitting in a neat mid-century pottery dish.
Go bunny, GO! I don't know what is chasing him but for 50 cents, I had to rescue him, along with the covered Easter egg dish. He does have two ears, the other one is just pinned back in the wind.
Ah, a better look at the fold out Christmas screen in this picture. The leaping deer planter is a little chippy but, um, 25 cents...
I do NOT collect tins and I don't know why I have so many. I just open the back of my car and there they are.
Pretty "Ye Old Curiosity Shoppe" dinner plate and two blue Lucite confetti candles.
Old cloth tape measures, tomato pincushions for my collection, a button hook, crochet hat needle and thimble case, two miniature candelabras made from twisted tin, paper doilies and an old leatherette case I will use for an inspiration box.
Hot iron transfers. I really need to get around to listing some of these because I have quite a pile. I'm a lot better at accumulating the junk than I am in listing it - LOL!
Crochet doilies and sewing trims. I know I'm supposed to be sworn off buying doilies but I walked in to the second rummage sale just as they were handing out bags and saying, everything you can put in the bag for $5. Game on.
Seriously GROOVY 60s tissue box and a sweet 50s sewing pattern. There were quite a few old patterns at the digger sale but a lot of them looked like they had been through a fire and then water damaged so I passed. That and the fact that I have at least 50 or 60 in line to be checked. A very tedious chore.
Got glitter! I don't use a lot of glitter but a poke sack full of jars, all for one money at the VOA? Just in case I need some.
Oops, there's that tine again. What's up with that? Pretty pink ribbon just a little late for Easter crafting.
A-dorable crochet hot pad. The estate sale was a serious digger sale. I had to go back on Sunday to see what else had been revealed. That will be the next post.
I hope you all had the junking luck on your side this weekend!
