I started my day at 5:30am this morning, there were several promising ads in the paper and I wanted to get to a few of those sales early. The first sale was advertised as "Cleaning out Grandma's house". Sounded good right? I headed over and arrived at 6:50am (still dark outside). They had no lights. Really! I could not see a thing. I did make out some old keys and that's the best find at sale number one.
My second stop was a Annual Rummage Sale at the First Baptist Church in Evans. I usually have pretty good luck at this sale but not today. Couldn't find a thing and witnessed some rudeness. Two women were sifting through some stuff on a table and the first woman had an item in her hand and laid it down for a second, the second woman swiftly picked it. The first woman said "Sorry, that's mine" and the second woman said "If you take your hand off of it then it's fair game". People never cease to amaze me.
My next stop was the winner of the day. It was kind of a living estate sale and kind of a moving sale. Once I entered the house I knew there was no need to go anywhere else after this (I pretty much blew my budget here). Lots of old books, so I picked up several. One was a 1964 edition of "Gone with the Wind". My birth year so I had to get it. I found a beautiful blue chenille bedspread. As I was digging around I saw something peeking out of a bag that looked like my kind of stuff - Vintage Baby Clothes. It was a huge bag and I paid $20 for the whole lot of it. Turned out to have 56 pieces of clothing, 20 blankets, 5 bonnets, 2 booties, 2 pair of shoes and 1 bib. Most of it is in excellent condition. I also picked up a old baby doll crib and cradle. Other finds at this sale include a old clock, cow creamer made in France, vintage sifter, old bucket, and some old ornaments.
As always there are more detailed photos on our Facebook page, you can find them here.
Update - I have laundered and pressed quite a few pieces of the vintage baby clothes if you want to take a sneak peek here.
