It pays to pick while the picking’s good, because the holidays usually mean the end of yard sales for the season. Yes, there are thrift stores, but I often get sticker shock at the price of vintage items there. I even sell some of the same items for less than the thrifts!
I did save a couple of items to show you that I picked up a couple of weeks ago. My best recent find was this awesome crocheted apron that I found on a table piled with old clothes.
I usually look past the clothes, but I guess that red edging caught my eye. I’m just now showing it to you because I had to soak it for a week to remove some stubborn stains; however, she’s a cutie now!!!
I’ll always pick up an old dishcloth made from a flour sack, especially one that has been embellished with some sweet embroidery.
The milk glass salt and pepper shakers were made by Westinghouse and are “go-alongs” with Corning Ware’s Cornflower Blue pattern.
I’m grateful that I have taken my own advice and “picked while the picking's good,” because keeping the booth replenished this month has kept me busy. But reworking and “fluffing” the booth has given me the opportunity to visit with some of my faithful customers and meet new ones. Thanks to those of you that have shopped with me and those that have taken the time to introduce yourself….It’s been a thrill to visit with you!!!
