Garage Sale Bliss-Part 1

OK gals, I'm gonna have to do this in 2 parts because I found another good garage sale after work.  I am a horrible photographer, so bear with me.  Also, I don't set up cute, creative shots.  Well here goes-----
This is just a quick grouping of some of the things from the great garage sale.  The 3-shelf stand came from the sale.  It is in perfect condition and was only $5.00.  The color is forest green.  Love it!

The vintage tree shoes were $1.00.  The milk glass vase and planter were $0.25 each.  The planter is marked Fenton, but I can't quite make out what the vase says.  I think it is marked Goody. The cut glass vase and the little green glass pitcher or vase were $0.25 each.  Are you lovin' it?

The next shelf has a vintage nut grinder.  I haven't seen this style before and was only $0.25.  The cut glass divided trays were $0.50 each.  On the next shelf is a cast iron rooster napkin holder for $0.25.  The vintage lamp is marked rorirame(I think)and has a floral bouquet and japan under that.  I'm gonna have to research that one.  Does anyone out there have any ideas?  The lamp doesn't have a shade and the cord is original and frayed and will have to be replaced.  The next item is a vintage glass 3# Peter Pan peanut butter jar filled with old buttons and was only $1.00.

The next grouping shows a Nasco stainless steel gravy boat in it's original box and never used.  It was just $1.00.  An egg slicer for a nickel was a great bargain.  The silver plated salad tongs are still in their original wrappings inside the box-never used and only $0.50.  This picture shows the nut grinder and the divided glass trays a little better.  Want to see some more goodies--here goes!!

This isn't a very clear picture, but I'll do some close-ups for you.

This hat box had 3 vintage hats in it.  The pink one looks almost like needle-point is has an Oleg Cassini label in it.  The black on on the right is made of curly lamb and has a Howard Smith Furs label.  The hats were $1.00 each and the hat box was free.

These 2 hats were also $1.00 each.  The one on the left looks almost like a top hat.  The hat box was free.

This hat looks like an equestrian hat.  It was also $1.00 and the hat box was free.  I really didn't need more vintage hats.  I already own over 30 of them.  But only $1.00 each--what's a girl to do!!

Now we will start on the linens.  Wait a minute--I forgot the cute vintage pearl purse in the picture.  It was on $0.50..I also have a very large vintage purse collection.  The stack of linens in the picture are all cut-work or eyelet table runners except for the little round cut-work doily on top.  The table runners were only $0.50 each and I think there are 6 of them.  The little doily was only $0.25.

The tablecloth in the middle is linen and is huge and oblong.  All 4 corners feature cut-work.  It came with 8 napkins and the whole set was only $3.00.  On to the next picture.

This cute vintage tablecloth is in almost perfect condition and was only $0.25.  In fact, the lady having the garage sale had it covering her check-out table.  We had to unload the whole table so I could have it.  Nice lady!

And last but not least is another tablecloth in perfect condition for only $0.25.  The color is actually a lighter gold, almost yellow.
What I didn't show you were 3 sets of twin sheets for $0.50 each.
Whew-- my fingers are tired typing.  And you are probably tired reading.  Get up, stretch you legs, and get something to drink.  I will be posting part 2 in a few minutes

I will be linking this post to the Southern Hospitality blog for the Thrify Treasures party.  Check it out.
