Community Garage Sales!

One of my most favorite weekends of the year - our community
garage sales!!!  Tons of people right in my neighborhood -
wanting to get rid of their "junk".  Their junk is my treasure.

Photo of treasures below.  In random order.  
Today I can't figure out how to rearrange.

. . . . . 

{ A lovely stack of vintage hankies.  They measure 8ish inches high }

I said, "can you believe they only cost $5 for all of them?"
Adam says "Great, we'll save a ton of money with you using these
instead of buying tissues"  Gross. 

. . . . . 

{ Probably my Best Score. }  

Huge box of vintage Christmas ornaments.  
These plus about 75 more still in their original packaging.  
Total cost?  $8.00.  The box also contained some vintage fabric.

{ A Favorite Hanky }

{ The Not So Pretty Hankies  }

The stack of hankies held plenty of variety.  I had fancy lace trimed, elaborately embroidered, every day serviceable fabrics, mens, monogram.  The one with the pink flowered was heavily stained.  Even looked like black ink.  Still - it was washed and probably still used again and again.  Not thrown away.  I was also amused to find a paper towel folded like a hankie and tucked in with the rest.

{ Todays Coffee Cup }

A vintage cup, featuring a popular damask patten and my lipstick.
Cost - $0.25

{ A Random Collection } 

These are cleaned up, and piled neatly, ready to find their new home in our life.  Because of a "end of the day, $1 per box" sale I would estimate that I probably only spent around $25 for everything.  This includes a nice antiquey table.

{ Another Favorite - Hand Embroidered I'm Sure }

. . . . . 

{ Nice Collection of Vintage Wrapping Paper }

. . . . .

{ Books! }

Included in the mix, childrens classics, modern day health, sci-fi, cookbooks, and even a Sweet Valley Twins.

. . . . . 

{ Bow Ties }

Again, because of the $1 a box sale I probably only spent $0.02 each for these bowties, this fun rattan belt and crystal tray.
