I took a little break this morning to go to an Estate sale with friends. My friends Ruth and Gail and I started out and got there just as they opened the doors. It really wasn't great as Estate sales go, and prices were high, but it's the thrill of the hunt....right?
This is all I found there, but the prices on these at 1.00 each was good and even though the embroidery wasn't perfect, I love the crocheted edgings and I always look for that.
Since it was Friday, we couldn't find any other sales in the area and it was still early, so we decided to check out the closest GW and Salvation Army stores.
At the Salvation Army, I found these plates.
They were a bargain as priced, but when I got to the register they were 1/2 of that.
They say Japan and Stainless on the back and probably aren't worth much, but I didn't pay much and they just had my name on them. Can you tell?
Oh, and the little bird was one of my treasures from the GW. He was dirty and scuffed and Gail and Ruth both laughed and asked if I was going to put him in the dishwasher.....no not me.....I had read somewhere to use a toothbrush and toothpaste and as you can see, he is shiny and white and smells good too.
This old white mixer bowl came from Salvation Army too. I just can't resist these and yes, I can put it in the dishwasher. (Dishwasher/bird story on Blue and White post on March 6th)
Oh, and this cute little potholder came from the Estate sale....$1.00
We were home before noon with our treasures and I got back to my Easter Dress sewing.
Guess I'd better get back to that now too. They are turning out so cute, can't wait to show them off.
Polka Dots were the right choice.
