Ahh, another Saturday full of yard sales. It's the most wonderful time of the year!
We found this skinny table close by first thing in the morning.
Love the aqua color, and the details on the apron.
We also got this cute little wicker child's rocking chair. The color is faded in this brightly lit photo, but it's a very pretty blueish green.
We went a little further out of our way for the next sale, because the Craig's List ad said "ALL VINTAGE!". You don't have to tell me twice!
When we got there, the woman was still pulling things out of her garage. My car was already full (I know; I need to get a truck) but we somehow managed to fit this huge old doll house.
We still have the yellow one from Clover Market, so I guess now we're collecting them!
The view from the back -- each room is sectioned off and has a different flooring.
I start talking to the seller and she says "You like vintage? Come here!"
And proceeds to lead us into her house to see the (mostly) paper ephemera vintage stuff that is piled up in her dining room, waiting to be taken outside for the sale.
Which I got to sort through first!
Here's what I found: a great paper doll collection from the 1950s.
Lots of outfits, all in fabulous, almost-new condition.
Some sewing paraphernalia, like this needle sewing card. I couldn't resist the cat graphics.
Or the Art-Deco look of this one.
How about this vintage owl wood box purse?
I'm not really an owl person, but they sell well on Etsy. I think this one was made from a kit sold to emulate the original (and considerably more expensive) Annie Laurie designs popular at shops like Saks Fifth Avenue in the 1960s.
That's it for today!
