Garage Sale Score

An early morning supermarket shopping trip came to a screeching of brakes yesterday when I spotted a garage sale glad we stopped ( Mr VL hates them!) I spied a big plastic bag of linen ( I can spot filet crochet from a 100 miles away!) Grabbed it  without looking inside . Lots of serviettes that I don't want, quite a few stained tablecloths which I'll soak and some beautiful pieces like the gorgeous old pillowcase. Cost me $8.... BARGAIN !!!

I have never found a vintage flower frog before, and this was $2....I think these people thought I was a bit demented!!

On Wednesday at the Salvos I picked up a vintage silver case with nice engine turned finish for 5.95
A Royal Albert Old Country Roses dish for 3.99
And from a vintage home ware shop called Ã‰clat Bazzar sale I fell in love with this little darling...he's going under one of my glass domes in the new house. The shop had him in a nest under an expensive Victorian shaped dome...awwww

Anyway I'm off to do heaps of soaking and see what I can retrieve of my linen haul!
