We found a few fun treasures along the way. Including a 1969 Mustang Mach 1 in the most beautiful condition I have ever seen a Mustang in my life. Seriously. This was a gorgeous stinking car just sitting there in the middle of this little garage antique store. I need to take The Hubbums back to see it, but I'm afraid that if I do that we will end up with a Mach 1. HA!
Here is what I DID find, though...
LOTS of fun goodies! That Colorbox ink pad - yup...the gold one....set me back a whopping 25 cents! It's a SEVEN DOLLAR ink pad that was still wrapped!!! I was a little excited about that one!
Yup. It's what you think it is. An old rusty sewing machine foot. I know...I can hear you know...
"But, Jingle, I thought you didn't get along with the sewing machine? Plus, that's all rusty and ick and stuff."
Ah, yes, my dear friends, however, have you ever known my mind to not be intrigued by the most curious of trinkets and such? No. No, you have not. Why? Because I like neat stuff. I'm thinking this is going to very soon be a kind cool, little bit crazy art doll. For reals. I have a head ready for it and everything. Just working through the rest of the design ideas and then I will get it all put together. It's gonna be a cool one!!!
This is one of my favorite finds of the day! It's an old postage scale in a GORGEOUS COLOR!!!! Can you see those prices on there? HA! That's hilarious! Just try to go to the post office and tell them that you would like to send a 1 lb. package for 40 cents!!! Hee-hee! It will fun to see them laugh you out of the building! HA!
Yup! BIG gorgeous white TASSELS!!! Yes, doll action coming from these suckers, too! FUN STUFF!
I also got two jars of super fabulous vintage buttons! I dumped them out shortly after I got home just so I could play with them! The mixed jar is a good basic mix and the black ones are AMAZING! There are SO many awesome buttons in that jar! I can't wait to use them for fun stuff! I also got two pieces of fabulous fabric! One in a petite floral and the other a pale blue gingham that just makes me happy! You can see some vintage lace in there, too. Oh, and the FEATHERS! LOL! Yup, that's a bag of really pretty yellow and purple feathers with just a touch of green. Are they synthetic? NOPE! The crazy lady having the yard sale can't throw away the feathers from her pet bird so she keeps them! THEY ARE REAL!!!! I know that's a little gross, but there is just something about REAL feathers that makes me happy. I'm so going to use them! At least I know they are clean because they came from a cared for pet bird rather than the sidewalk! HA!
I'm not sure how much I spent, but I know it was probably around $10ish. The buttons came from the mill so they were a little higher than yard sale prices, but since I love them and use them so much, I think it's worth it!
We had tons of fun on a GORGEOUS Massachusetts Saturday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! What do you look for at yard sales when you go? Do you have good antique stores or junque shops in your area? Do you love them?
