Wow...another great day at an auction. This bowl was the last thing I bought from a kind of grimy shelf in a kind of dingy basement. It's kind of a mess, but I know that at one time it was BEAUTIOUS- and it was only $2.
Two dollars is what I paid for a Diet Limemade at Sonic on the way home and then spilled before I could drink it - so, easy come, easy go. The bowl is soaking now- we'll see how it turns out.
Another pink goodie- this vintage vinyl billfold with ballerinas- and inside-- a 1950's calendar and...
...a coupon for an Arthur Murray Dance Lesson.
Maybe I'll wear my lace "glove-ettes" to my dance lesson. I don't really know what these are called- they're like gloves that only cover from wrist to elbow. Remember those fake turtleneck- dickeys? These are kind of like a glove dickey.
Anyway, they'll also be lovely to wear as I eat caviar with my "new" old mother of pearl caviar spoon.
I'll be sure and let you know if the caviar tastes better when you use the correct utensil.
(But don't hold your breathe waiting to find out.)
Some old sewing packaging with great graphics.
When I go to the moon, I want to ride a needle.
Another fun thing- a sales sample Knox hatbox.
With a tiny little hat inside.
A tiny little hat that your dogs will only wear for about 3 seconds.
This box says "Stag- fine writing paper...for Men". I wonder what will happen if I try to use it?
I got a box lot of smalls, too. I haven't really looked through them yet- I'm "saving" rummaging through them as a reward for getting some other work done around here.
Thanks for all the comments on the last post- it's nice to hear from so many people. Comments on this post count towards the drawing for the Victorian scrap, too. I'll pick a winner on Sunday night.
