Oh no, I almost forgot to show you guys what I got from the Church Rummage sale this weekend.
I love this little Salt and Pepper Shaker. The vintage car pulling the vintage trailer was just to cute to pass up.
Now I can say I actually own a little vintage trailer. How I wish it was a life sized one though.
I got these four beautiful Pink Depression Glass champagne glasses for only $1.00. Yes, that was $1.00 for all four of them.
When I first noticed these bowls I knew I wanted them. They were a great size for a nice big salad or a big bowl of soup in the winter. Plus the color was fun. I could see using these in a lot of different Tablescapes.
But, they were marked $2.00 each. More then I wanted to pay. Since it was a Church rummage sale I didn't want to ask for a lower price. I put them back.
Then, the last day of the sale, I went back. Everything was marked way down and I got all four of them $2.00. At only 50 cents each, I couldn't pass them up.
Same thing with these plates. I liked them and thought they had a fun feel to them. They are from Pier One Imports (so are the bowls above) and at $2.00 each they were a great deal but I didn't want to spend $8.00 on plates when I had so many already.
Yet, there they were the last day of the sale. Marked down to $2.00 for the set of four. I quickly decided I "needed" just one more set of dishes and home they came with me.
This little guy was just waiting for someone to see him for the treasure he was. He was dirty. Very, very dirty. Marked $4.00 most people looked at him and put him down.
But, then I picked him up and saw him for who he really was.
He was a Hummel! I knew he was worth way more then $4.00 so I was not about to let him get away.
Once home, I noticed something odd. He had a twin!
When my aunt died, I inherited some of her Hummel collection. Low and behold, she had purchased the same little guy. So now, I have both sitting in my hutch, looking darling together.
I love going to Church rummage sales. It's like going to seveal garage sales all in one place.
