I knew of one estate/garage sale (that was how it was billed) near me Saturday and headed out with the family in tow. Well, we also stumbled upon four more sales within the same neighborhood. Pleasant surprise. Here's the haul:
Rather large, very 70s looking crewel picture. Keeping this for myself! It cost all of one dollar. I asked the garage sale proprietress if she knew who had made it. She said, "My great-aunt, and I'm selling it because I know she won't be here today."
An old feed sack apron, modeled by my daughter.
Old Bingo game, fold-over stationery from Current (I have a soft spot for vintage Current as my mother always bought it back in the 70s), old alarm clock that so far is working, raffia letter holder, bunch of vintage floral and fruit seals-- never found any of those at a garage sale before. Neat!
So a not too promising morning turned out pretty darn good. I'll take that any day of the week!
Happy thrifting out there!
