Friday was a good garage sale day for me. One of the many things I collect is vintage Chinese jackets. It is really hard to find one in a larger size, but I scored Friday. The jacket is in perfect condition and a size Large. The best thing is that it was only $5.00. At the same sale I also got an embroidered jacket for $5.00. I smiled all the way to the car.
I also found 2 vintage aprons for $.50 each. At another garage sale I found 2 vintage baby quilts--one was patchwork and one was hand-embroidery. The best part is that they were only $.50 each too. Both had a few stains that I think will come out with a good Oxy soak. Neither one had any tears or holes that I have found.
I also scored 6 cookbooks for $.25 each. My grandson will get 4 cute books from his Granny and a play grill and food made by Playskool.
Saturday was a full day for my DH and I. We went to Monday Trades Day at Canton. HOT-HOT-HOT!!! The last day in July in east Texas is NOT a good time to go to a flea market. Thanks goodness we started early. I did find 2 vintage tablecloths in almost perfect condition for $5.00 each. I think they will become aprons. I also came home with 9 vintage patterns in larger sizes. Six of the patterns were still in factory folds.
I really wish I had pictures to show you. I did go to Best Buy and get a new digital camera that the salesman assured me was fool-proof. (LOL) He obviously didn't know who he was dealing with. I took pictures, but can't get them off the camera. Oh well, my DH will be home soon and he can do it for me. If the pictures turn out OK, I will attempt to post them. Don't expect too much.
