Last Friday I noticed an ad in the local newspaper for a yard sale in the "not so great" section of town. I hesitated about going because this area is notoriously crime ridden but I did a drive by first and decided it looked fine and boy an I glad I went!
Did I ever tell y'all that I was a majorette? Yep! From about age 6 through high school I twirled the baton and competed in various pageants and baton competitions and also marched with my high school band. One of these days I will pull out some photos and post them. I told you that to tell you this. I collect all things majorette. I have several dolls, figurines, etc.. so when I saw this old majorette hat I practically broke out in a sweat!
When I asked how much and she said $5.00 I almost jumped for joy!
I can't take pictures of me I don't even know why I try!
I also got a few other goodies:
An adorable vintage dress pattern in my size. I love the blue one in the background. It looks so fresh and cool.
This is a corsage! How cute are those little spun head Santas?
I made try and open this package very carefully and take these out to use at Christmas time. Shoot, I might even wear it!
And these next items are soooo cute I could just cry. I wish I had found them before Easter, but they will be fun for next year.
a bunch of vintage Easter picks.
some still in their packaging.
These are my favorite. Little broken eggs with chicks peeking out.
Total cost for this delicious haul??? $8.00!!!!
So glad yard sale season is here!
Hope everyone has a great day!
