holy crap

i kind of skipped work tonight because of the weather i knew it would be slow
and this morning i went in an hour and a half late
because i was meant to go to the most insanely amazing estate sale ever
and it was two blocks from me on the way to work see?
meant to be
i was meant to spend the money i decided not to make or use for moving out of my house this week
i'm still kind of dizzy
or maybe it's all the must lingering in the air
oh but look what i got!!!



see! insane i tell you!

1.cozy hand crochet cardigan
i thought made me look like charlie brown and i almost didn't get it
huh?? the nice lady talked me out of that one thank goodness
2.three candy color wool lace scarves made in japan

3. this dress is a silky poly cowl on top and the same pattern in wool on the bottom and reminds me of my grandmother
it's mr blackwell ha! it would actually look pretty sassy if i took the skirt in a little
4. acrylic navy cardigan with little flower applique's and scallop trim

5. these two amazing coats, look at lining on the black one!
i clipped the fur off the plaid one but i think it's too big for me
i'll probably stitch it back on and sell it next fall
6. this poly strawberry blouse is gathered at the cuff and waist and fits perfectly
the polka dot jacket i figured i'd sell because it's so red!
but it fits so nice! so we'll see gingham and patent pumps!
8.woven gold sandals

9. the true scores
a perfect burgundy wool peacoat that makes me wish it was still cold
and this dress!! $5 !! net and tulle and lace and satin heaven, oh my!
i snatched it up just in time before the vintage shop girl made it to the second house, whew.
i still can't believe my luck

there's a bunch more stuff i didn't photograph
some cropped 50's blouses and fabric remnants, a blue lace shrug, a crochet skirt, some silk hankies and a couple more dresses
and i made friends with my favorite local vintage booth's seller!
what a day
time to rest me and my pocketbook for a while now
