Did you all do anything special for Mother's Day? We spent it with my mom, grandma, aunts and cousins, eating lunch at my Aunt Mary's place (Hi, Aunt Mary! I know you're reading this because you're my one true "fan".) ;-) Afterward, mom, grandma and I stopped by a thrift store...three generations, all scoring deals...it was so fun.
Speaking of deals...this weekend I found some really great ones. On Friday, I snuck out to an estate sale on my lunch break and came home with a great haul of vintage goodies. Saturday, in between our godson's baseball game and working on my top secret project, I went back to the same sale. Everything was half off that day, and I wanted to see if a couple things were still there. They were (yay!), so I snatched 'em up! I went to one other sale that turned up nothing, and a quick stop at Value Village that turned up a couple things. But, there I go again, blabbing away, when I know y'all just want to see the goods. :)
|A glass cosmetic jar with gold specks.|
|A McCall's sewing book from the '60s and an assortment of recipe books and ktichen|
pamphlets (of course).
|My favorite find, and I paid a little more than usual, but this 1950s Peggy Hunt|
dress is so beautiful. Great for summer cocktail parties, or even a wedding dress.
|I mean...this dress is GORGEOUS!|
|A set of aluminum coasters with a rose in the middle.|
|Two funky floral fabric napkins.|
|More crewel artwork! This is a rather large one, and I love the colors.|
|A set of appetizer forks in green, purple, cream and pink.|
|A really lovely '80s/'90s black sequin dress. Love the see-through fabric along|
the shoulders. Could be a great "taking the sleeves off" project to update it a bit.
|A set of 8 fabric napkins with colorful borders.|
|A set of 9 floral iced tea glasses that would be great for summer entertaining.|
|Two metal tins with knob lids and handles. Great for gift-giving!|
|Kind of in love with this serving set. That shade of pinkish-red is delicious.|
|A Lane end table that matches our two-tier set (and coffee table). Was in rough shape, but mom helped|
me clean it up. Other than some scratches, she looks good as new!
|And this one has a shelf on the bottom, which I love.|
|A beautifully done crewel pillow. So spring-y and cheery!|
|A load of vintage paper doilies and one package of place mats!|
|A jewelry box just like the one I thrifted months ago. |
I'm slowly replacing my jewelry that was stolen during the burglary.
|A pink-and-white gingham apron.|
|A 1970s white cotton summer dress with a lace pattern. Based on its fit on Esmeralda, I'd say it's a 16/18.|
|A red travel bag, perfect for that weekend trip.|
|A cheese knife/cake server with a silver handle (that needs some polishing!).|
|A set of white Tupperware from the '70s that my grandma spotted and kindly bought for me.|
|A wonderfully 1980s sweater to keep you warm in the winter months. :)|
|A roll of vintage wrapping paper.|
|A 1960s baby doll night gown in blue and aqua...|
|And with the house coat...|
I know I'm going to seem crazy, but I have been looking for a night gown set like this for a while, and this one fits perfectly. So if you ever come over around my bedtime, don't be surprised to see me lounging in this, but do feel free to giggle a bit. :)
Now...what about you? Any good finds this weekend?
