This weekend I was the source of thrift treasures, I hosted a rummage sale in my garage and driveway.
Preparing for a rummage sale is a lot of work but during the sale I was able to talk with so many charming people and hear some marvelous stories.
I did manage to sneak off to attend a rummage sale a few blocks away for some new treasures.
|1950's Bar B-Q apron|
|with such cute drawings and funny phrases.|
|"Mother of a hamburger" my favorite.|
|"If you want to see flying Saucers|
Go pinch the waitress"
|I can't get enough suitcases, I just love |
them. The size on this one was perfect to
store my vintage children's books.
|Purchased for $3.00. I found a few surprises|
when I opened up the suitcase when I got home.
The inside was in poor condition, and a few
items were left inside. Some sort of trim, fur
colar, a long line bra, and
|the bottom of the case was lined with a few pages |
from a 1955 newspaper. I love ephemera so I
thoroughly enjoyed reading the want ads.
|The suitcase was made by Wheary|
|and had this patent pending tag still inside. According |
to the tag the suitcase was made between 1931 -1934.
