I am happy to report that after what seemed like the longest winter ever that the rummage season has begun. And the first rummage sale of 2011 was pretty much perfect. I ended up with a big bag of bargains and a chance to catch up with Sue, who was also filling a bag and scored a Vera blouse.
As for what's inside my bag, let's just say that it was twice as full before my daughter removed her finds: two skirts (one suede), a dress, a pair of shoes, a scarf, and a big, soft wraparound sweater. And that left my vintage goodness, which included:
A yellow rose tablecloth. Yellow Rose of Texas, anyone?
Some lacy slips. Maybe I had seen too many picture of Liz Taylor in "Butterfield 8.''
A Home Sweet Home sampler.
Some retro blue floral print patterns that may have come from the Brady Bunch's house.
And my favorite find, which I think I may have made a lunge for when I saw it.
An Anchor Hocking salt shaker. Love the lid's tulips and striped flower pots and of course the curves on the glass jar. Actually, what's not to love?
Here's hoping that your rummage sale finds are just as good.
