Apothecary Jars/Store Jars~Old Lace~Estate Sale Finds!!

  1. I found more old jars, buttons and lace and with running out of space to display it all, I brought back to my living room, this old set of library bookcases. I love having a place to create little vignettes. Old lace, different shades of old white buttons, old black & white pictures, tarnished silver plate, seashells, etc..
    OOPs! Looks like it's time to buy more tootsie rolls for the old store jar on the end! They don't last long...since the jar is the last thing you see as you are heading out the door!

    One of my favorite finds this past Saturday, was this antique crocheted piano shawl! I picked it up at the last sale that I went to for the day...a steal for only $5.00! In perfect condition! A beautiful finishing touch to my favorite dress form!


    One of the first finds for the day, was this very lovely vintage sweater with sequins! Another steal for only $1.00 I bought lots of things from this seller.... I am going back for more later this week. She just wants to get rid of stuff! Fun! Fun! I will post later this week of more great finds! For now I hope you all have a wonderful day and do something fun!
