Don't you just love garage sales? I do!! (When I see a garage sale sign, my car just turns in by itself!!) Sometimes I drag my husband along -- he always gripes but ususally finds something to look at, or chat with the sellers. Sometimes Noli and I go if she gets here early enough or we go to thrift shops which are almost as fun. Slow going with a 4 year old, but fun!! She, of course, is dazzled by the toys but knows we're not buying everything in sight!
I've really just gotten back in the groove of garage-sale-going, since I've opened my Etsy vintage shop. I have lots of vintage things myself that I'm listing, but I'm always on the lookout for more!!! Plus, did I mention this already, I LOVE THE HUNT!!!!
I thought I'd share some recent finds with you -- they'll end up in Magnolia's Attic soon!
Isn't this the cutest ever? Reminds me of Betsy McCall, way back when. For all you youngsters, Betsy McCall was a paper doll that appeared in McCall's magazine. I'd always grab my mom's copy to cut out Betsy and her cute clothes!
And this one!! Those kids are so adorable and I love the simplicity of the design. I can imagine these on toddlers of today -- so sweet...
I thought this vase was so pretty with its lillies. It was made in Japan -- I don't know the age, but after doing some research, I know it's a vintage piece.
These two cameras were at one garage sale -- I haven't done any research on them yet, but aren't they super cool? They'd be a great photo prop -- maybe they'll wind up in a movie one day!!
And, drum roll please, for the piece de resistance:
"Near as I can tell, we're somewhere behind Mt. Rushmore" Is that hysterical or what?? Guess I'd better go read Etsy's "mature content" rules....
