Look what I bought this weekend!
I fed my garage sale addition a bit on Saturday.
Would you have bought it?
SCORE! Below is a few pieces from an 8 piece Lu Ray Pastel dinner set. Paid $10 for the whole set. Only a couple chips in the yellow plate and cereal bowl. I'm tempted to fill out the set with the serving pieces. Mostly from the 40's through the 60's LuRay offered an 8 piece set for $2.64 cents. I believe from reading some old ads that housewives of the era could sell these in home parties.
Were these the precursor to the dreaded tupperware parties?
OH the sadness.....I followed a tiny little estate sale sign later in the day after taking my son to Karate practice. Why oh why, did these people not advertise on Craig's list. If only I had been there at the start in the morning! As it is, I managed to find some jewelry for my re-purposing and some beautiful white Haviland. As I was checking out and chatting with the woman running the sale, she told me she just sold a whole box of vintage jewelry for $15. ARGH. I came so close!
Well, I'm going to be making some fab pin cushions out of the cream and sugar, wait and see!
Everything below was $5
Ah, Frosty my fav! I rescue doilies all the time. I know how much work women put into these things and even though they are slightly out of fashion now, I can not stand to let their hard work go unappreciated. I box them up and wait for their time to come again. I may even starch some and hang them on this year's Christmas tree!
A beautiful plastic pin for $.25
Below, a really great bargain. Someone had enough of scrapbooking and stamping. She put everything in a bag and marked $10 on it. I peeked in and saw a couple circle punches and knew those were expensive so I picked up the bag and checked out. Later I realized at the bottom was a complete Stampin Up set of 12 ink pads that were not even open. Normally these sell for $55. Not only did she include the ink pads, she included a great big selection of stamps as well.
Now I just have to find space in my studio.
