*name that movie quote…”
Here are some of the things that I found at the garage sales in the mountains. All of these (and some that aren’t pictured) were acquired while shopping with my brother for about an hour.
*A book of photos by Norman Mailer (the father of the contemporary narrative) , on the life of Marilyn Monroe. Photos by some famous photographers Also found the musical score from My Fair Lady.
*Robin Hood LP’s from the 1940’s. I also found the score from Oklahoma (Thanks Jonathan), The Sound of Music and some jaunty tunes from Piccadilly.
*Vintage Opera glasses by Debutante in Boston. Made in France and heavy. Leather cuffing. I would love to know if anyone has additional info on a piece like this. They interest me so much and I adore the color. 1 buck!
*On my way to the mountains, there was a garage sale in my neighboorhood. With the car packed, I found a huge box of about 60 Mason Jars. All perfect condition. The lady acted like I was doing her a SERIOUS favor for paying the two bucks for all of them. I have about 10 ideas for them. Do you have any?
Currently they are taking a “bath” to clean them out:
*An entire family of Raggady Ann and Andy’s. Waiting for a home.
*Late 1950’s, plaid picnic bag with two matching THERMOS containers.
*Four, 1960’s Lenontex, plastic cups in turquoise.
*A sweet, German made, wool sweater with leather cased buttons. Needs a good dry-cleaning, but I can’t wait for Miss K to wear it. It will fit a 2-3 year old.
One of my favorite finds of the weekend was this box of 6, vintage Christmas ornaments. I’m learning it is hard to find them unscratched and in good condition, without paying an arm and leg. Lovely pink and peach colors. These will be on the tree this year:
The thrill of finding truly good vintage makes my heart pound. My garage is filling with treasures….
