I feel like I've been traveling far and wide lately to get goods -
and its not always been worth the jaunt. Yesterday was one of those
'high mileage/low goods' days. But I did pick up 4 old receipt tablets (right).
They are for a local business that no longer exists - so I inquired.
Turns out Grove's Meat Market was owned by the garage sale
lady's father. I asked where it had been and she steered me in the
direction of this building - built in the 50s. I pass this place often
and never knew it was once a meat market!
Love little tidbits like that. They help make up for the mileage thing.
But today was a great haul day. First - I found several really
cheaply priced garden things. These 4-packs of alyssum were 50 cents.
And a climbing bean plant - been wanting one of those - was 25 cents.
(She even put them in this nice basket for me - no charge!)
And perfect for that bean plant - this trellis was 50 cents!
And one more garden thing... a large planter for this corner of
my yard - also just 50 cents!
My vintage-goods haul looks like this and cost $29...
It includes a whole pile of 'L' monogram linens, some early button-
close shams and a lovely fringe edged candlewyck runner...
This composition Japan bobblehead caught my eye -
so I'll give it a whirl on Etsy and see what happens...
The chicken graphics cards are actually ink blotters.
I spent a little more than my norm to get 3 old ledgers -
in excellent condition with old script writing...
Some porcelain things (Noritake and Limoges), an old tin game board
and even some ruby glass & silver made it to my stash today.
I just love Fridays! Thanks for following along ~Joyce
