...You just never know what you might find. For me Saturday's are an adventure. If you don't do that and it isn't your cup of tea and you prefer expensive little shops...then I understand. I used to be like you..but I have now discovered a way to find lovely, useful things for my home...and it doesn't cost me an arm and a leg...so to speak.
First stop of the day and I found this lovely little harness that fit Mele...and with all that fur I haven't been able to find something that is both cute ..and fits her fat little body. Price? 50 cents!
Last Saturday started off very slow..I found just one novel..a harness for Mele and were headed home when we stopped at one last yard sale...and I found the following items.. This lovely little siver jewelry box...
...all lined in scarlet velvet..notice the pretty etching along the edges...
A round deep silver tray, very heavy
I love the feet...that is always a plus with me...the name on the bottom says "Raimond" and has a discription...it is silverplate but very nice and I love silverplate.
Everything was black and it took awhile to get it to return to it's beautiful self..but worth it.
(sorry my photo's are blurred...I should have taken them over..) The tea set was found in among other items and matched perfectly so I imagine they belong together. It doesn't match the tray..but that is good. I like mismatched silver.
I also found this lovely very soft well made afghan. Handmade! And such a lovely butter yellow! Perfect on my patio swing!
All of the above was exactly $11.00! Now to me this was a wonderful deal. The tray was five dollars but she took $4.00. The tea set was also $5.00. The little jewery box was $1.00 and the afghan was just $1.00!
What an adventure and one I can afford!
Today we went again..and I will share my find with you later in the week.
Oh..before I forget..I did go to an Estate sale..which I will share later...but...I gambled a bit.
I put a bid on a gorgeous little very old wicker doll buggy in perfect condition. Will I get it..who knows. I may be outbid. If so, it wasn't meant to be. :) I have been looking for one for a long time.
Why? Oh heavens, I don't know! Still trying to replace those lost toys of long ago I imagine!
Love and hugs,
P.S. My prayers go out to my dear friend Gloria at Happy To Be. She is in need of your positive thoughts and prayers.
