Hey, stop sniggering! I don't call this feature The Sheer Trash Roadshow for nothing!
Seriously, though, I was over the moon to find 6 full packages of vintage invitations and baby announcement cards (I got 2 packages of the blue party invitation cards), a big bag of wooden spools, a wonderful glass cookie jar for 50 cents, a vintage postcard album, a framed feather bird picture, a sweet old children's prayer book, and the cute orange duck. I doubt the duck is actually vintage, but he is so cute and reminds me of a little book, The Story of Ping. Plus he will look delightful in my living room, which has splashes of orange for accent.
There's a lot here for both my Etsy shops, and things I can keep and use myself. Here are a couple of close-ups:
|Aren't these baby boy announcement cards exquisite? 1950s? 1940s?|
|Ping makes a good photo prop, doesn't he? I'm pleased to have found this empty postcard album, as my own collection is growing and I've been casting about for a good way to save and display my cards. Chantal of Etsy's AgnesofBohemia tells me she's found a box of religious/Sunday School postcards so I can expect to add more soon! Check out her shop: AgnesofBohemia.etsy.com.|
Well, there's lots more to come over the next few days, so if you'd like to do a bit of virtual garage-sale shopping with me, I hope you'll come back. I'll be loading lots of new items into the shops, too, so please stop by and browse a bit:
