On my way over to Stars Antique Mall to work on my booth yesterday, I decided to make a few stops at some garage and estate sales along the way. So glad I did as I am in need of some smalls and that is exactly what I found. Here are the highlights.
Vintage stencils and two folding rulers.
Two little wood shelves.
Lovely butterscotch pottery lamp.
Close up of the very lovely finial.
Sweet vintage bride doll.
Scary, malformed vintage baby doll with spare parts.
Adorable vintage doll clothes and bonnet.
Cool old leather purse.
Pretty beaded purse with rhinestones.
And finally, my best find of the day.
I found this at the first sale I went to. It was in the window sill of the garage with a bunch of ugly old Avon bottles and I can’t believe no one else got to it before I did. After doing a bit of checking on the internet, I found out that it is a cut glass chatelaine perfume bottle. It has a little metal loop where I’m guessing it attached with a chain. I’m not sure if the painting on the lid is original or not. Green and purple are not my favorite color combination, but I think it is sort of pretty. I didn’t realized until later after I got home and looked at it more carefully, but it has the initials MCL engraved on the rim of the lid along with 1904. Now, want to know the very best part of this story? It had a .50 sticker on the bottom! Pretty cool, huh?
Hope you are all having a fun weekend. We are finally getting some much deserved sunshine here in the PNW! Made me want to work on some Farm Chicks projects today which is exactly what I did.
