Everything but the Kitchen Sink

Wow, where do I start. My plan for this morning was to attend a Church Rummage Sale that is held twice a year. There is always tons of stuff at really great prices. I arrived about 7 a.m. and proceeded to get down to business. The sale did not disappoint. I had to go unload 3 times before I was thoroughly satisfied that I had seen it all. Here are a few of the items from the rummage sale:

Rosenthal - Germany

Harmony House Genuine Ironstone

Toaster Cover

Toaster Cover

Sweet Kitchen Towel

Great Old Belker Suitcase

Coverlet & Pillowcase
While I was at the church sale a lady told me about an estate sale that was located on the way to an appointment that I had at 11 a.m., so I decided I had time to drop by before my appointment. I pulled up to the house and I must say looks can be deceiving, I could never have imagined what that house held inside. Lots of vintage goodies, unfortunately for me they were going to mark everything down at 12 p.m. and I knew I would never make it back from my appointment by then. So I picked my one must have item and paid full price (and I went ahead and purchased some small things too). I was hoping when I came back to pick up my big purchase that there would still be some good stuff left. So I returned and it had pretty much been cleaned out but there were three lovely rusty garden items left that I wanted so I put them with my big purchase that I had already paid for and I told the lady at the table I was going to get them but wanted to go back through the house first. Picked up a few more items in the house and returned to the checkout outside and they had sold my garden items to someone else (Iwas heartbroken - maybe even a little mad but I should have known better - should have made them put a hold sticker on the items). Anyway here are a few of the items purchased at the Estate Sale:

Vintage Raggedy Ann/Andy Dolls

Small Tablecloth

Rusty Candleabra

Shoe  Stretchers

Her eyes move

1914 World Atlas Book

Lovely Bangles

Beautiful Vintage Apron

Vintage Baby Diaper Shirt

Vintage "Mr. Dino" Dress

Vintage Dress
My big purchase item is still in the Explorer, nobody was home to help me unload it. It's an old metal bakers rack with 2 metals trays. I will post photo's as soon as I can get it unloaded.

I did take about 200 photo's of all the items I purchased today. Lots of linen, vintage cards, and a ton of other good stuff. If you want to take a look, you can go here and here on our Facebook Page.
Hope you all had a great weekend and found lots of wonderful vintage things!
