Why is it that the really good sales are all scheduled at once? Last weekend we had to choose between the City-Wide Rummage Sale held at our large multi-purpose center and a 14-mile yard sale held in a neighboring community. Actually we were able to attend both, but we went to the City-Wide Sale first. By the time we made it to the 14-mile sale, most sellers had packed up; however, we did find some goodies at both venues……
I found a pretty hand-painted plate dated 1954 as well as a sweet figurine of two birds on a branch…..
I picked up two more pretty plates by Myott in the Forget-Me-Not pattern. I also bought a bell jar/cloche with no top handle but if you look closely you can see a hole in the top so it will be easy to add an interesting knob…..
A vintage planter featuring an old-fashioned water pump called out to me….
And three cute kittens called out as well….
I broke my rule of not buying partial china sets (again), but English transferware is hard to pass up. This pattern is Rosedale by Wood & Sons.
Pyrex is always on my focus list….
And I couldn’t pass up this Sunbeam Vacuum Coffeepot. I love its art deco styling but I’m not very familiar with the way it works.
Do any of you have experience with a vacpot?
