Church Sale and JP Coats Spool Cabinet

Yesterday morning I had no idea that I would be rummaging through a bunch of junk later that day. Mom called me early on Friday morning to see if I wanted to go to a Church Preview Sale (well of course I did, did she really need to ask). We met up with two of my sisters later that evening and headed over to get in line. I found some really great stuff but missed out on something fabulous (I just about died when I saw it, no kidding I think I may have stopped breathing for a minute). There was a very old beautiful weathervane sitting outside but by the time I got there it was too late. There was a big (boo hiss) SOLD sticker on it! Oh well you win some you lose some! I did get some pretty good stuff though, so here we go:

I know this is a reproduction but I can use this for it's intended purpose. The little clear glass panes are what got me. Who doesn't want a JP Coats spool cabinet right? Who can afford one, they are so expensive. So this is the next best thing. It is very well made (although I hate the color and may do something about that) and I can sure use it for storing my thread so I bought it, for $25 it was a no brainer for me.

Next up is this charming little pie basket. I just love it and have never run across one before. It is marked West Rindge Baskets, West Rindge NH.

Even though Mom and have a pact of no more glass, I just couldn't help myself. 

I did get a bunch of other stuff and you can see it here if you are interested but these were the highlights of the evening for me.

I am staying put today working on my Etsy shop. I actually got 16 items listed over the past couple of days and plan to try to keep up the pace. I love selling on Etsy and it is very rewarding when you match a vintage item with someone who loves it! I do it to make a little extra money but I think the real thrill for me is when I get feedback from someone who was looking for something special and I was able to provide it to them!

Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend!
