How much stuff does one gal need?

Last estate sale day, I found such swell stuff, including the vintage train case which I told you about here. Want to see the rest of the stash?

Old millinery fruit....

Box stuffed with vintage sewing patterns....(bound for eBay)

Buttons, vintage tags and stickers, Christmas cut outs.....

Wooden alphabet blocks....

[Hazel wanted to help with the photo shoot...]

Old postage stamps of all types and colors. These are for my friend Joan (ssshhh, it's a surprise!) who uses them to create amazing collages. I'm keeping the old b/w photo of the tent campground to make a card for my husband and the friendly ruler that cost a whole dime...

Grand total: less than $10...not including the dog.

I saw the picture before I saw the words and I was so going to ask you about those stamps. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Wow...What great finds. I never used to find things like that visiting sales of any kind. I finally gave up. Portland obviously has better sales than my neck of the woods. lol
