There is great joy and great sadness in the Vintage Soul household. It is nearly the end of another rummage/garage/yard sale season. Which makes Mr. VS quite happy. And me, well, not so much.
But I'm looking at this as an opportunity to focus on other things, including Project Etsy, which is on my to-do list after Halloween, the state marching band competition, the girls' play at school, college entrance applications and so on. OK, so maybe I really won't have time to do anything.
But, here, in no particular order, are the items that I've picked up as the season comes to a close.
A pair of very cute dish towels that I nearly came to blows over at a church rummage sale. I wasn't very popular with a woman with rather large elbows who complained that I took "everything good" out of box of otherwise unremarkable bath towels and sheets.
Well, yes, I did. But I was there first. And, come on, who wouldn't keep digging if you came upon this?
I mean, really, how cute are they?
As is an apron of kittens and Christmas trees, which was at an estate sale, in the basement on top of the washing machine.
Two nice pieces of vintage fabric that were dirt-cheap, both under $1.
And, finally, a group shot of the rest: A 1955 Go to the Head of the Class game, silky wrapped patriotic ornaments (I thinking about something for the Fourth of July), a vintage doll clothes pattern, old sheet music, two spools of old ribbon and an flower pot filled with stuff from the free box.
Here's a closer view of the shoot music book, which had these cute stick figure drawings, and the Head of the Class game. Usually, I buy games for the pieces but this one charmed me with its retro-ness. Plus, it was only a quarter, so I knew I couldn't lose. I think it could become part of my first-day-of-school display.
