Saturday Treasures

 
Actually, this was Wednesday, Friday and Saturday Treasures.  I went to Estate Sales on Wednesday and Friday and then to the Flea Market on Saturday.
 
I found some interesting items.  Some neat old glass custard cups, a wooden doll, a porcelain doll, a sack full of very colorful vintage hankies, a mini shadow box frame, and some cocktail napkins with funny sayings on them.
 
 
I found linens and lace (naturally - I can smell them out when I walk into a home), a big bunch of vintage silver and look at the gorgeous wood carving I found.  Won't that be beautiful up over a door or window?  It is in perfect condition.
 
 
In the bunch of silver, I got this unusual butter knife.  I am not sure if you can tell or not, but the handle is turned a different angle than the blade????  My friend, Dorothy, said she had seen some of these before but I never had.
 
I found this teensy tiny little gold cigarette lighter.  Don't know what I'll do with it, but it's so tiny, it's cute.  It's only about 1 1/2" round.
 
I also bought this darling scissor holder made out of an old quilt and accented with fabric yoyos.  Isn't it cute?
 
 
And now my piece de resistance!!
 
Piece de resistance: _n.
 
(1.  the principal or most outstanding item in a series)
 
 
Look at my Radio Flyer Red Wagon.  I have wanted one for a long time to use in the back yard for flowers.  Isn't it sweet?  It will look great with my Coca Cola piece and my little bicycle I am going to paint all red!!
 
I am so excited about it!!
 
Enjoy!
 
Till next time, Judy

What a fabulous wagon and I love the hankies. I bought a few the other day, too! They are so sweet. I am trying to see the little doll with the braids better! She is precious!

You might laugh, but we had scads of these at the garden center...no one realized how lovely they were. And I hated them because they were too low to the ground, and didn't carry enough product...lol.

Yours is gorgeous.

I love the wagon. Nothing makes me think of my childhood more than a radio flyer wagon.
I love all you estate sale finds!

Julie said...

Hi Judy - nice wagon! I felt the same when I found my red wheelbarrow. My favourites are the linens, always the linens. Our vintage stores haven't had any linens lately....(sigh) J

You really do find the best things! That wood carving is gorgeous and the wagon will be a wonderful addition to your garden.
