Weekend Finds!

Good Monday Morning!

It is sunny and HOT here is SW Virginia.  It is supposed to be in the 90's all week.  After the winter we had, I'm not complaining.

This Saturday my sister and I hit the yard sales really early.  The first sale we hit was my favorite of the day.  Actually I had been over to the sale the day before and knew I had to go back because this is what I got!
Look at all this fabric and buttons!
All the fabric was so nice.  Already measured and was .25 a yard!  I am going to have so much fun sewing this up.
The rest of my "loot" 
At the same sale I got this Corning casserole in a great size for .50

A Princess House (Remember Princess House parties?) ornament for .10
I also bought a Princess House ice bucket and depression glass compote that I forgot to take photos of because I used them for our Father's Day dinner.
On to other yard sales I got:
Pretty "Fruit" tablecloth 
I love this tablecloth because it's a Dogwood, Virginia's state flower.

This is a little alarm clock that I think I can fix.  The music box feature still works I just need to get into the back and fix the Ballerina and see if I can fix the clock.  I have had some luck with that in the past.  Isn't this the coolest clock?

Yeah I need another cookbook like a hole in the head.

I guess I am now collecting this pattern.  I have 3 different pieces with this design, that makes a collection, right?

This is part of the vintage Christmas stuff I got.  That cup matches the dishes that I got a month ago at a yard sale.  And look what was hiding in that Santa mug arrangement

A very cute and confuses looking little pixie!

Also a bag of tiny flowers I can use with my crafting.  I have completely run out of little flowers so I am so glad I found these.

I have been wanting one of these for a while.  This vintage one is brand new in box!

I can't wait to play with it!

This is my favorite find of the day.  It's not very vintage but it's a cigar store display case.  It is on a lazy Susan type stand and spins.  All four sides have two openings.

It is so cool.

The graphics of it are beautiful.
Did anyone else find any super deals this weekend?
Hope everyone has a great Monday!

Wow! You did great! I can't believe that you found that cookie press in such perfect condition, for only $1.00!
Love the cigar display too. That would make great craft supply storage!
Fun stuff!

Score, Score, Score! I'm drooling over your Vintage Tablecloths! I have a Hoard of them that no Sane person should own. But I can still never pass one up at a bargain! *LOL* And the Cigar Box Graphics are always so Amazing aren't they... perfect for the Creative Soul to stash all the bits and bobs in!
