How about I show you a few things I picked up at a rummage sale last week instead?
While we were out a few weeks ago, we passed a sign that a church was having a rummage sale the following week. (It was never listed in the newspaper, which surprised me. That teaches me to keep my eyes open more often.)
Anyway, I had not been to a church rummage sale in say, what, uh, 20 years. Seriously. And that was one that our youth group had at our church to raise money for a trip to Kings Dominion. I just don't see rummage sales advertised often, so when I saw "the sign," I knew I had to go.
Let's just say it was an experience to be remembered. I had Spenser and Sawyer with me and they were excellent. I couldn't ask for better thrifting partners. Sawyer was in his stroller and, when my arms were too full, Spenser pushed him for me. The rummage sale was a little stinky. Literally. I had to breathe through my mouth most of the time, which made my nose and ears clog up.
Anyway, I found some fun things, like the produce apron and the blue polka-dotted sheet. I also found the above vintage punch bowl set. Ladle included. The set has twelve cups, with one handle being broken off (but included). Sadly, I have broken off another handle since then. The set was a mere $4.
And then I found these "ovenwares." The one in the back in an unmarked casserole dish/mixing bowl thing with the coolest trees on it. The front one looks like a vase, but it is by Fire King and says "ovenware" on the bottom. I have no clue what it could be used for. Any ideas?
Oh, and the strawberry tablecloth underneath? Found in a pile of linens. I think it was a sheet in its former life. I bought a ton of stuff and my total bill was $10.
