My title is what my grandmother always said to my mother, aunt, sister and I after we went shopping, if we went shopping without her…we were supposed to open each bag one at a time and show everybody what we purchased, and everyone would “ooh” and “aah”. My grandmother is no longer with us, and I miss her a lot. My mother, sister and I and our families have vacationed in Cape Cod at the same time for the last two years and my mother, sister and I will still say, “Show me your wares!” after sight seeing or flea marketing on the Cape and laugh, thinking of Grandma Brenner.
That’s what Thrift Share Monday feels like for me, so I love it. Here are my “wares” from the past weekend of tag/estate/church rummage sales:
|Milk glass – I especially love the candy dish – both only $1|
|Yay! An old tube radio — Randy LOVES these, this was in great shape
even though only the AM works – $5 at a barn sale.
|3 strings of lights and upholstery tassel trim (for future guitar projects) a
pretty tin and a quilted lined lunch bag — this pile cost me $8.25
|Note cards, vintage rick rack & bias tape, very old matchbook and
what I THINK are “BeDazzler” bedazzles, but what I am going to use as
push pins on my inspiration board or hammer them into a guitar
|One of several 60’s era Life magazines I picked up|
|Things have not changed, the media are still freaked out about
“subteens” growing up too fast. Watch out for those FANCY HAIRDOS!
|You know you want it…it’s FESTIVE.|
|I’m very excited about this issue which is in EXCELLENT
shape and is FULL of photos that I can use for decoupage
|One of my HOLY GRAILS!!! This is a reproduction,
but it was way cheaper than it would have been if I bought
it online, which I have been hemming and hawing about.
I love it, it brightens up my kitchen.
NOT SHOWN: Art Deco End table for $5 – I need to clean it up and I’ll post the before/after shots. I also picked up what I THOUGHT was a costume jewelry ring for $5 — silver toned with faux sapphires and diamonds…but today I noticed that it was stamped 14K inside the band. Now I’m wondering if it is in fact, real. I also picked up some Pyrex but will post that in a different post as it was drying in a dish drainer last night while I photographed the other stuff.
I am linking to Apron Thrift Girl, Thrift Share Monday — because I want to see everybody’s wares.
