Saturdays are garage sale day. Hubby drives and I buy. I encourage him to take a book because I never know what I might find and how long I will be. In the winter we don't have a lot of garage sales. So this Saturday was a nice start for the garage sale season. I got this lovely lace table cloth, it is real heavy lace, and it has a tea dyed look, it also has a few spots but, that really doesn't bother me because we layer a lot and they won't even bee seen.
More sewing supplies, seam binding, it is wonderful for making filler flowers for ribbon work. All of the doilies and finger towels and the crochet corners are from different garage sales. The cocktail forks were just black from oxidation but they cleaned up quite well, I got them and the lovely spoon and 3 of the doilies and some salt cellars ( I forgot to put them in the picture) for $5.
This isn't the best picture but the lace on these pillow cases is knit, it is quite beautiful. You don't see a lot of knit lace, it is mostly crochet. I am going to take it off and use it on something else. The pillow cases themselves are a very rough cotton I don't think I will use them.
Lingerie! Do you remember wearing full length slips? I do, these were at a garage sale, I couldn't pass them up, they are in good shape, just a bit of perspiration stain on the under arms, I think I can get it out with oxy clean. The lace on the one on the left is awesome. The tags say average for the size, so how old does that make them, because they are more like a size 8.
This is the one with the awesome lace. this lady was small and short, I think she had to take up the length a couple of inches. But the lace on the bottom is 6" wide. Well, thats my garage sale week-end, I got a lot of fun things and as usual I really don't need half of it. But then that's what garage sales are all about. TTFN
