Last week I showed you the antique ledgers/diaries I purchased at the indoor flea market. I also picked up a small flow blue bowl, tiny teacup and a pretty porcelain plate.
But right after that I had to take young Mr. VJIMT to a school function, which I didn't mind so much as there is a Goodwill right across the street. I found this vintage Goebel porcelain raccoon figurine there in perfect condition.
Also this bag of goodies. I could only see the deer, but that's all that I wanted!
Everyone else did too, as they kept oohing and aahing over the bag in my cart.
Next I stopped at an estate sale that had started at 8am. Only now it was after 1pm and I was surprised to find a line still waiting to get in! Sadly, I did not come home with this typewriter; it was priced at $200!
But I did come home with this pretty ironstone pedestal compote.
It did not stay home with me for long though, as I listed it on Etsy (and the Mustard Seed Pages) where it sold practically overnight.
I couldn't leave this charming colored phototgraph behind.
Or this one. I've seen people alter them for Halloween. What do you think?
Speaking of the holiday season, you knew I would find Christmas in there, right? This appliqued felt tree skirt (or small table covering) is the epitome of kitsch. I found a similar looking snowman one here, which I used last Christmas. This one is going to the Etsy Christmas Junk shop.
And check out these sweet vintage Christmas stockings. Love the Lulu!
Lesson of the day -- it's never too late to find a treasure!
