I noticed this dresser and the price was great so I got it. I hated dragging it up to my third floor condo. However, through the sweat and bitching it made it and it looks good. Also an old BINGO card popped out! So I guess that was the dressers consilation prize for carrying it up flights of stairs in Florida...

This is a cute butterfly brooch I have decided to sell.
This butterfly brooch is almost 2 inches from wing tip to wing tip across. From antenna to wing in length is also about 2 inches. It is in great to very good condition.

I haven't been on the tea tin collecting scene so I know not to much about them. I know this one was made in New York, NY by the Seeman Brothers Inc. It can date back as early as 1901 so I am holding on tight to this one until I know for sure. I'm hoping it is very old, plus I got it for $2.00! Another bargin!!! :)
So I finally caved and got my first punch bowl. I researched it and found out it is a Vintage Graped Anchor Hocking Punch Bowl. It is from the 50's and it was only $7.99! I took it home knowing nothing about it, figuring it was new, but I always wanted one for get together's and just said what the hell!! So, i'm happy!

There movie selection was huge. It was neatly organized which was a suprised to me, even in alphabetacle order!
They had some cute shoes but way over priced.
So, today I went to a Goodwill I never been to before. There secletions were big but nothing really vintage. It was mostly new things and many copies of one item. There prices were high especially for what item was being sold. So I pretty much left empty handed. :(

Today's ad will be 7up.
*Out with the new, in with the old is something I will post from time to time. It is products or company's that are still around today but I prefferably love the ads from then rather that the ones of today.
Booklet - I bought this booklet in a local thift store for 15 cents. Published in 1945 it talks about the different types of aprons from men to women and has there patterns drawn in the booklet. There are so many types and different ways to tie them. It looks very handy.
So today will be my first post on my new blog! I went thrifting yesturday and the day before so instead of posting what I bought all at once I thought I would break it up. I will also be posting little articles and pictures from my vintage books and mags here and there. :)
