Garage Sale Madness!

Now, I'm almost always complaining that there are never any good garage sales, flea markets and antique malls in Memphis. (Just ask my husband and my mom!)

And I hate to say this.

But I was wrong.

I went yesterday and today and boy, did I find a haul!
Wooooooo Hooooooo!

Let's see, I got 7 yards of vintage fabric, a tablecloth with cherries, light reflectors for old Christmas bulbs, 2 vintage perfume bottles, old tin wind-up ducks, a darling little blue dish and floral lid made in japan, two lampshades with awesome floral and tulle trim, a ceramic little girl planter, a hammered aluminum lid (which I think will make an adorable candle holder), a vintage metal globe, a stamp holder, and a chippy old cream colored basket (which I suspect is a bassinet, but would make great storage, especially for fabric!). The little brown and white doggie is for my mom.

And last but not least is my favorite find, Aunt Betty. She's a little spooky, but I really love her. I can imagine her in a huge grouping of other funky, old paintings.

Thanks for letting me share my finds with you!

  3. Good morning, I'm stopping by to say hello, and Happy Monday (and for some, happy blue Monday or happy belated Pink Saturday - WHEW!)

    I have to say, I love looking through your finds but my favorite is that white, wicker basket. Just love it!

    My blog topic today is about a man, a dog, a love story, and a bit about embroidery. Please stop by if you have a moment.


  4. Looks like you got some fab. finds.
    Love that basket - such a beautiful shape - I can just imagine that filled with fabric - beautiful

  5. MMmmmm! I LOVE your finds! I just bought two fabulous, vintage shades too. They need a re-do, but they were such a wonderful shape, I snatched them up for five dollars each. Can't wait to get them done. The fabric is delish and I loved Aunt Betty.
