Remember how I was complaining last week how I have not been to any good garage sales lately, and I have not found anything vintage lately. Well that all changed the day after I wrote that post. You know when you go to sale where the whole time you are thinking "I better enjoy this because I may not go to a sale like this for another year." Well I went to one of those sales with my mom last Sunday, and it was the most amazing vintage sale I think I have ever gone to. I could not believe it was all together and ready for me to buy. The sellers were just getting rid of stuff, and I wish I had gotten to go to the sale when it opened because the amazing treasures I found were the left overs from what was originally at the sale.
Because I found so many amazing treasures I must break the post up because I still need to photograph the rest of my wonderful finds.
First let me start off with the price of my items. My mom and I gathered about 40-50 items and put them all in a pile, and when we were ready we asked the gentlemen holding the sale how much he wanted for everything. After looking at are lot of treasures for a moment he says is $20.00 ok? I looked at him in shock and said ARE YOU SURE?!?!?! He then asked to little? I told him no I guess not, but are you sure? Everything for $20.00 WHAT?!? I am still in shock at the amazing deal I got on everything.
Yes I found a mint clock. I jumped with excitement when I pulled this awesome clock out of a box. I can't seem to find the perfect spot for this pretty little clock, but I will eventually.
I love this vintage globe piggy bank. I have seen these bought by other treasure hunters and always wanted one for myself. I can't wait to throw spare change in it and then use it for a date with Mr Joyful Thrifter.
A sweet little yellow Pyrex bowl. I love the size of this bowl for keeping jewelry in or of course baking in.
One of my most unique finds is this pink tin bowl. I have seen white ones with red trim on the edge, but never a pink one. It is not in the best shape, but I think that is what I love about it.
Teeny tiny frogs. How sweet. I love the size and shape of these little frogs. They are so great for holding vintage photos.
EEEP! Look at this vintage bag. Its so sweet, and I can't wait to use it.
These two sweet pot holders are from my adventure today with Mr Joyful Thrifter. We got to spend the whole day together, and we drove to Ojai. It was so lovely going to a new place, and just being together. Of course we went to some thrift stores while we were out and about.
I paid $0.75 each for these cuties.
After purchasing the pot holders we headed to another thrift store. I am sure you have all been to a thrift store that makes you check your bags in at the front to prevent just popping things into your bag. Well I did that at this thrift store and shopped around for a bit. When I went to go get my bag the lady is acting very confused, and I told her I was just checking in my bag. She thought I was making a donation, and had actually already put out my items on the store floor. I was laughing so hard, and asked her to return my treasures. It was so funny.
I do hope you all had a wonderfully thrifty week!
