If I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times....

Never pass by a church rummage! Here's my loot!

Vintage flower basket, English candy tin, giant Pennsylvania Dutch tray, Delft pottery, 1920's Hymnals (Including Gospel Hymn Selections for Female Voices)(!), sweet divided dish with floral aluminium lid, turtle bank circa 1970

2 shoe boxes full of molds of various shapes, Queen Mary dish, doily (note: I am usually not a doily girl, but loved the red and blues of this one), and a vintage pink jewelry box. Look what was inside:


See the fab shoe box? I gave that to my friend Magpie Ethel. She loves silhouettes of kids and the color orange. That's what I call a double delight!

Yes.....
a church rummage sale can be heaven (!)
But I've found that if you wait and go a coupla hours late....all this good stuff is gone. Need to get there right when they open up.
Great stuff lady!

I have that fab shoe box myself. Love the black and orange graphics. What I love about church rummage sales is that they think 10 cents is still a possible price! Can you beat it?

I rarely see church rummage sales around these parts. Seems there are quite a few in Portland.

Those earrings are fantastic (especially like the green)! I have a pair very similar to those in the left hand front (the turquoise look) that belonged to my mother.

That pink vintage jewelry box is sweeet...like a box full of candy.
Love those earrings, if not worn, they would be great for crafting.
I'll never pass up a church rummage sale again!

When I saw your finds I totally noticed that shoe box...my first thought was that you found A SECOND ONE! I love that little shoe box you gave me...love it, love it, love it. You are very good at sharing Dot! Oats and watered coffee soon?

Oooooo, I love your finds..and those molds. I collect molds, but don't have nearly so many. You made a wonderful find.

This is so funny to me - on that very same day that you found all of these things - I found that exact same tray at a half-price thrift shop! I got such a kick out of seeing it on your blog!
