Monday rolls around again....

Good morning one and all - another week begins - :)

Dale and I ran around once again to the sales and once again I am stunned by what some people will buy then sell at a garage sale - I am sure when we get it together for our sale I will be dumbfounded by the accumulation!! Until that time I still pack rat it at the sales and drag home stuff I could very easily live without, but the question is do I want to live without the "stuff." I think not!!!! One of the Estate sales we got to was a true estate that was up for grabs - and the home was just packed with collector collections - tons of Holiday Fitz and Floyd pieces - and I am talking dozens of pieces from gigantic table things on down! Also piles of pressed glass and plate silver. There was also piles of the Danish things - Mothers day Plates, Fathers Day mugs AND some Christmas Plates!!! So I finally finished out the 1970s collection of Jule Tide B&W plates at give away prices...... Here is a snap of most of the pile I dragged home -


At another sale I picked up the Christmas table cloth and the DC souvenir plate for a couple of bucks. We stopped at a Goodwill and I got the baby's plate for $1.50. I don't need it but couldn't pass it up - I just love the little pics on it. I got the books a various places for .25 and .50 each. It was a very good day -

I stitched quite a lot this weekend but only on exchange things so no snappers of any of that yet.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Take care,
edgar

Oh, I wish you lived near me or vise versa so I could tag along on your yard sale trips! I love yard sales but DH doesn't and since I don't drive (medical reasons) I seldom get to go! You always find such great stuff!

Beautiful finds!! What a fun day!
Edgar, I think you should start a business finding pieces for people to decorate their homes with or open a shop! Lots of people hate the shopping or don't know where to go. You have great taste too. We have a few antique stores here, but I shop a lot on Etsy or Ebay looking for pieces. You're surrounded by good "stuff"!

Hey! Ck my blog! I almost forgot;)

I'm so jealous of those plates! They're gorgeous - and worth a tidy sum to boot. How are you going to display them all?

Gorgeous plates Edgar - what a great find!

You & Dale get such fabulous things
(at fabulous prices, too!) at the
sales. I wish we had those kind
of sales around here - only occasionally.
Love your stitching and your blog.
Best wishes and blessings...
