One of those great thrifting moments is when you stumble upon an unadvertised yard sale on a Sunday in the middle of the afternoon. Keiran and I sneaked out to the last day of an estate sale where everything was discounted by up to 50% off. After spending a half hour at the estate sale we started our drive home. That was until I saw a "Sunday Only Yard Sale" sign and started following the trail of signs on various streets to a very small but fabulous yard sale. The woman was selling items from either her grandmother or her husband's grandmother. I don't remember exactly what she said. Her prices were so cheap and what I took away were simply charming glimpses of the past.
Can anyone guess what time period this is from?
Such delicate bead work. The other side has some patches where beads are missing. I'm not quite sure what to do with any of them. I do love holding them, opening their little latches and taking a peak inside only imagining what they once held. Perhaps one of those tiny books that were ever so popular in the past before they had invented Kindles & iphones.
This is only half of what I brought home. I also bought about 10 vintage tins, 2 art prints, a quilt topper (quite worn) and some vintage clothing. She charged me $10 and I gave her $20. This was a case where I felt that even $20 was an incredible deal. If I had accepted her $10 price I would feel guilty. Now to decide what to do with them all. Any suggestions?
