MY WEEKEND FINDS

Thanks for tuning in to another episode of My Weekend Finds, the continuing saga of one girl's quest for more junk!
Before I get started, I'd just like to take a moment to remember and honor the men and women who lost their lives while in service to our country.
OK, so let the junk extravaganza begin! This is my first purple vintage quilt ever. I'm not a big purple fan, so I didn't even really want it. It was marked $5, which is a great price, but I walked away because I'm running out of room to display them. When the seller said "Well how about $2?" I really had no choice, did I?
Apparently I now collect vintage Lady Sunbeam personal care products. I found this little pink Lady Sunbeam electric razor and it looks pretty darn cute sitting next to the Lady Sunbeam hair/nail dryer I found last week.
I hate to cook, but I sure do like vintage pink hand mixers and recipe boxes!
I would have loved to take a picture of these two pottery deer where they're really going to go, but that would have involved dusting all of the white pottery on the shelf. It just seemed too exhausting!
I found that dark blue globe bank in the middle at the flea market a couple of weeks ago.
I didn't want to be the only person in blogland to not have the Donkey Party game, so I grabbed this one because finally there was one in my price range!
I will never ever pass up Halloween stuff. It's right up there with Christmas for me!
More vintage gardening tools. It's amazing how once you decide to seriously collect something, it seems to pop up everywhere.
And last but not least is my favorite find this week. It's an old record from the 50s, and in case you haven't noticed, I do like to have vintage pin ups on my blog, if they're not too risque. I wanted this record real bad, but first I had to mentally will the guy that had it in his hand to put it down, so that I could buy it. Then I had to do some serious haggling to get it into my price range. It was a very satisfying win for me! So, did you haggle your way to any treasures over the weekend?

Oh Carol, you found some good stuff this weekend! I love the Calendar Girl record and the quilt (I'm not a big purple fan either) for $2.00! I also like pin-ups and saw a Varga coffee table book yesterday but it wasn't in my price range. I'm getting ready to post my finds from Saturday. You have inspired me to try and do it on a regular basis.

Happy Memorial Day! Great finds! I love Halloween stuff too! Hard to find here at sales, though. Everyone is wise to it! BTW Julie London, the lady on the record, was married to Jack Webb of Dragnet---Sgt Joe Friday!Just a little trivia for ya!

Such cute things! It was raining all weekend in our neck of the woods, so I didn't get to go to either flea markets! I'm glad to see that someone found some treasures!
