Friday. 2 sales. #5 to get into a 10 a.m. sale (after waiting over an hour to get a number) 2nd sale I hit about an hour and a half after it opened.
Saturday. 2 sales. #2 to get into a 9 a.m. sale (actually was #6, but four people didn't show, so I moved up in line). DOOZY of a sale!!! 2nd sale I hit about two hours after opening and was glad I had chosen to hit the other sale first. I found things at all the sales, but the first sale Saturday was a goldmine of vintage. I actually ended up hitting it three times!
I got lucky with vintage Halloween. Love the cardboard jack-o-lantern. I also scored on big rolls of vintage wrapping paper.
Pipe cleaners and 2 scrapbooks full of old greeting cards.
Quite a few squares of wallpaper from a vintage wallpaper book.
My spun head magnet was on.
I scored big the other day on old shelf edging and got lucky again this weekend.
One of the silliest but most charming things I bought was this vintage child's chicken costume. It is layers of crepe paper and includes the little cone beak.
I can only imagine some patient mother sewing this costume for their child. The base is an old jacket or such with the original clothing tag.
This old silver and blue box is actually once held perfume. I thought it would make a great Fourth of July base for display.
