There was only one garage sale in town, an unadvertised special, two blocks away. I didn't find anything that made me all giddy, but that's ok. Not every sale can be a winner, otherwise my house would be overflowing! Here's what I got: Some vintage BLING.
Do you like my fancy backdrop? It's a paper napkin! This next item is vintage perfume samples....
that are in glass vials. It looks like drugs, doesn't it?! You're supposed to snap the end off and rub it on your wrist. I would love to know what White Lilac and Shocking and Evening In Paris smell like, but call me crazy, I don't want to risk slicing my fingers open to do it! Then rubbing that jagged edge on? I don't think so!
I've seen the infomercials for the Dean Martin Roasts so many times, and I've been really tempted to pick up the phone and order, but at $1 a piece, I like these better! I love all the old comedians on here, like Lucy, Bob Hope, Phyllis Diller, and George Burns. Those were the good old days! Oh gosh, I just sounded so old! I can't wait to watch these.
Last but not least, an old Brachs candy jar, for 10 cents, and an old Santa mug, made in Japan, for 25 cents. I've got three so far, so it's officially a collection! I hope you found a few treasures this weekend, amid all the celebrating! It you would like to see more thrifty finds, head over to Southern Hospitality.
