Junky Weekend V.2.0

 This was my second estate sale on Saturday.  Not a big pile but some fun finds just the same.  The dishes in the back are Danish and cleaned up quite nice.  The leather travel journal is about a trip to Europe in 1961. I have never found baby shoes so BIG.  I think these must have been worn by a 4 year old.
 Proof positive that every generation has known how to party!
 I scored a poke sack of buttons that were so sick that a lot of the bag was dead.  I could see a few good ones I thought I could salvage so picked it up anyway.
After cleaning and sorting, these are what I was able to salvage.  Not bad!  You can click the picture bigger.  The black glass ones are unusual in that they have two tiny sew-on holes on each edge. There are also a couple of small MOP whistles.
Next post will be the Sunday return to the digger sale.

I love the picture of the three happy people. I wonder if they are brothers and sis. Don't know how many buttons you had toss but those red ones (every one of them) are just great!

I noticed the pile of buttons right away, you did good pickin' and sorting out the keepers. I'm really liking those dishes, don't think I've ever seen any quite like them.

What a beautiful color green those dishes are. I just love finding and reading old journals! You find the coolest stuff!

I see you found more Wades! Excellent!

I was thinking of you the other day... I was looking through my stash for suitable buttons for a few cushions I am knitting. You'd think I could find some wooden ones with all the jars I have, but no. And Walmart up here sucks big time for button selection. I need to get back to the thrift store to find me some big wooden buttons! ;)

Hi Kathy, those green dishes are gorgeous. Finding the old journal is a treasure. Love the buttons and that old photograph is a hoot.
Have a great weekend.
