The 'They Weren't Kidding' Sale - Part I

The photos on last weekend's estate sale posting told the whole story...costume jewelry, garden concrete, vintage clothes, piles of dishes and fabric. But the thing that really got me was this line:
"This little lady saved everything." Here's part I of what I bought:

Barkcloth covered boudoir chair

Green Naugahyde covered desk chair (I have its twin in our den.)

Tins and flowers and a toleware tray. Oh! And the best dotty glass I have ever laid eyes on.

A squat glass vintage candy jar..."Candy Treats 3 pounds"

A box stuffed with vintage wrapping paper and super cute stickers. Well, except for the creepy clown one.

And a boxful of cards for every occasion. Looks like Jesus needed a little catnap.

Next post: Part II ~ The Christmas stuff
