There was an errand that had to be done on the other side of town. I had been putting it off all summer. Today I lumped it in with a visit to a local flea market and oh boy what a treat. I had a ball finding things I haven't seen before. Others that I had drooled over for sometime that were perfectly priced.
Just a glimpse at the goodies. I didn't mean to keep you in the dark. I am excited to have another set of those pillowcases. That's 3 in different colors. I can see that apron already.
Nursery hamper......with decal. Be still my heart.
Paper label still inside. How many sweet dresses did this see? I am sure it never saw a pamper.
I nearly had a panic attack getting to these. Pin ups in the original box. Can you believe I left one behind. I hope I sleep tonight. The box alone is worth it.
Bo Peep and her sheep sharing tears...no that patch on her skirt doesn't bother me at all.
Nothing a bit of vintage lace can't hide. How long before I go back and get Jack be Nimble?
A complete desk set of Dennison books. I made the fatal mistake when I saw the tag. "Is that the price for all of them?" As it came out I nearly shriveled. The owner smiled and snickered "Yep, that's what he priced them at!" My reward.
Most of them still full of the original packaging.
There on the bottom shelf again...what a treasure. An Irmi wall hanging. Fully caked in years of dirt and dust I had to get the q-tips after it. Treasure for sure.
This is the image I found on the cellophane bag today. Those old candy bags are truly a thing of the past now. Can you imagine handing out candy out of a wrapper? Or even a popcorn ball with nuts!
Thanks for all the sweet comments about my Halloween Haunted House. I am hoping to just run across a pattern one day. You know like I do say my Irmi. It seemed laughable to me that I hadn't run across one yet! Off to a sale in the morning and more crepe paper in the afternoon between all the mothering and such...
