estate sale finds
My sister came upon an amazing estate sale today. She rushed home as quick as she could to pick my mom and me up to join her. I bought the lovely milk glass server with vinaigrette bottle, salt and pepper shakers and little salad dressing dishes. (At quite a bargain price, $5!)The table cloth is an original from the 1950's and has retained a lovely cedar smell. My mom said, "I think I have a tablecloth just like that." After searching through her linen closet, she produced one exactly like it, still in the original package with the original price tag, $3.49. I got it 50 years later for only $3.00. What a sale! Now I have two fabulous old tableclothes...maybe curtains, or some dresses, or a lovely tea party, spread with charming old dishes and cozy tea sandwiches and some chamomile.
