Adventures, Antiquing, Cool Stuff, Success!, VIntage

Friday Haul

Boy, did we have a yard sale adventure today! First, we went to a sale in south Salem where I found these things:

Sewing Machine Attachments – 50 cents a box!
Ceramic hedgehog!
Succulent plant for Marnie!

THEN, we went out to southeast Salem in the country to the most awesome sale! It was the lady from Mama Roost vintage, and her husband is the guy who used to have Craig’s Camaro Connection in town, so I was having a super time collecting a pile of goodies and Greg found some good stuff too. There were bags of free things!!

My pile at the sale, and that wasn’t all! I had to guard it carefully, at least 3 people tried to raid it, ha.

More of the sale, note the gray ’65 Chevy pickup in the background.

Here are all the things I got:

Vintage Chenille Bedspread and Fur Collar
Chenille pieces, vintage European linen pieces, lace tablecloth pieces, wool blend pieces – all FREE!
Old suitcase for my suitcase stack and A Child’s Garden of Verses book
Vintage cotton blanket, Quaker lace tablecloth, tablecloth with ruffle, 3 vintage linen towels.
2 oval frames and 1 fancy frame with glass in it – that frame has little flowers on it
2 large bulletin board frames
Embroidery hoops and more chenille pieces
Very large frame — 24 X 36 for $5.00!
Vintage sign holder — I’ve been wanting one of these in case I ever decide to have a booth at a vintage show.
And the pièce de résistance — a giant old window for just $10! One pane is broken, but that’s ok!

Can you tell I was having a very good time at this sale? So many wonderful things! She had some denim jackets she had sewn vintage fur collars on, but none were my size so I didn’t get one of those. Everything was such a deal and I am very pleased! Most of these things will be living at my house and won’t be sold, unless I change my mind.

I had a nice time talking to Mama Roost and The Hubs enjoyed talking to Craig about car stuff, and he came away with a tool box, a metal bench, and a wheelbarrow (which he unceremoniously stuffed into my van – I will have to vacuum it again). We had to go home with the treasures in the van and take the big truck back to bring the window and sign holder home. Now I must get to cleaning everything and figuring out what I want to do with it all! I’m thinking of making some sort of banner with the fabric scraps. Or ten banners, there are so many! Wheee!!
