Saturday Treasures 9/21/2013

I had so much fun this morning - all in about one hour!!  I saw a sign in my neighborhood that said "Mile Long Garage Sale".  Well, come to find out, it was a neighborhood association sponsoring a garage sale that encompassed one square mile that surrounded my house!  SCORE!
It was just one sale after another and I did find some goodies.
Aren't these plates gorgeous?  The blue china "thing" is made to hold mail.  Some pretty little dishes - see the one with the cherries in the upper photo?
On the whole front of the table are baby clothes.  The lady said they were hers and had been made mostly by her aunt and grandmother.  There was a whole sack of them.  Can you see all of the beautiful embroidery on this one?
This wooden duck is a sewing caddy.  The wings are padded for a pincushion and the dowels hold thread.  There is a hole going from the back to the front of his head to hold a small pair of scissors.
I've always wanted a Hummel - but for fifty cents????
Of course, I found some pretty linens and doilies.....
a pretty piece of Silverplate.....
and this dainty little cup and saucer.
My good friend Dorothy has been helping me collect vintage salt and pepper shakers and had found all of these for me.
Thanks Dorothy!
So, I had a very good morning.
Till next time, Judy


  1. Wow - you did find some treasures. 50cts. for a hummel is unheard of now days.
    Hope you are enjoying the weekend.

  2. Wow- You sure find some treasures. I LOVE that plate with the cherries on it and the salt & pepper shakers are adorable. My mother used to collect them, too. xo Diana

  3. Wow You really found some cute treasures, love those beautiful plates...such a deal to have the sale all around your house, love that,,Phyllis

  4. I love the linens...but baby clothes? Be still my heart! Lots of great buys my friend! And what FUN!

  5. Pretty shakers and plates! I'm trying not to buy pretties as they aren't selling for me! I do love them,tho!

  6. I am so jealous of all the lovely linens.

  7. I use to live in New Braunfels. I'm trying to remember if that's the town with the Hummel museum or not...

  8. WOW, you really hit it big today. Wonderful items - love the linens and dish ware.

  9. You really hit the jackpot!! I LOVE garage sales!

  10. Oh my goodness! What a deal. And so close to home too. A Hummel for 50 cents? Just that would have made the short trip worth it. I sold most of my grandmother's collection a couple of years back. I wish I could remember the web site I used for my research.?? Anyway, I know it all has to do with the way they're marked on the bottom. That one looks like an oldie!
    Congrats on your bargains!

  11. Wow -fabulous finds - the salt and pepper shakers are especially nice, I'd not seen any like that before - love the flowers on them. Sounds like a great day.

  12. Hi Judy, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  13. Looks like you did score and do well with your shopping. What a great idea...a mile long garage it!

  14. Looks like you had fun! I'm so curious...where do you keep all the stuff you buy? Oh, and have you seen tassels made from antique salt and peppers? You could certainly make a bunch of those. How are you displaying your s&p's? Wish I lived closer! Hope all is going well.

  15. Great finds! Too bad I'd have to travel a thousand miles to shop at the one-mile sale ;-)

  16. What a lot of treasures. You are so lucky. What a great day.

  17. You always find the best stuff! Love the little Hummel guy!

  18. You did amazingly well, I still am always shocked that such beautiful items are for sale.


  19. Love all your finds and how fun to have the sale so close by your home. I'm especially drawn to the s&p's...Dorothy found you some beauties!
