3 Great Sales!

I was lucky enough to find 3 great sales over the last few days!! The first one was on Thursday at a home that I've been to several times in years past. She always has good stuff~been a collector for many years! I picked up these vintage alarm clocks and the little old brush.
Gorgeous floral pictures, pitcher with grapes, and a pair of sweet little green vases! The big Mc coy vase was actually found at a sale a while ago by my youngest daughter, Kim~~I think I got her trained!!!

A nice selection of granite ware, tin molds and cookie cutters. I also got some awesome, huge wire whisks that I featured in my Black Friday post.

This old photo album is a little worn on the outside, but it still has it's working clasp...

and the inside is still perfectly beautiful!!

Then on Friday, while I was driving to take some things into the Red Rooster, I literally slammed on my brakes when I saw this sign......
It wasn't your usual farm sale with galvanized stuff, old chairs and other junk. But she had alot of cool stuff inside a cute little out-building of sorts.
When I walked up this is what greeted me~~~

and I decided it needed to come home with me!

She had alot of collections too that she was thinning, such as linens, crocheted doilies and potholders, sewing stuff, ephemera, and tons of old photographs and cabinet cards.

These are the ones that came home with me!!

I also bought these hat stands and ironstone pitchers.

The last sale was this morning... and I walked away with some glassware, pretty china pieces and these amazing pieces of slate!!!

They will be incredible chalkboards in someone's kitchen or office space~~~LOVE THEM!!!

She also had a table full of gorgeous old post cards at 25 cents each!! So I grabbed these!!

I LOVE the Victorian lady one on the bottom~so lovely~ and the pastel hand-colored ones!

So, needless to say I had an excellent weekend of junkin'!!! I'll admit I had a ball!!

Hope you all found some great stuff too!!
