Weekend Treasure Hunt

I couldn't have asked for better weather to hunt for treasures this weekend.......mild temps and plenty of sunshine.  

I went to several yard sales and visited an antique shop that was closing ......75% off everything in the shop.

Cute kitty cookie jar   ($4 ).......and a plaid European sham that had never been used.

The sham had a suggested retail of $80 .....isn't that crazy???????    $3 sounds much better

The village butter dish......napkin holder and coffee house were at the antique shop going out of business   $20 for all.

Vintage pillow cases......

Victorian lamp shade.....

I have several of these silver pieces.  but none with the glass still in them.     I bought both silver pieces at an estate sale that was 50% off everything since it was the last day.

Here's the other silver tray from the estate sale.....

Opps., photos are out of order!     First I'll share the hanky card   ($2.50)

And now the photo of what was on the silver tray.    Presented to Chuck Floyd in 67 for his bowling score.....

Last is the black and white sign.....

It's the Bee's!

I love ,   I couldn't pass up a Battenburg oval table cloth for $!  and a bedskirt and matching valance for $3.    Usually the yard sales have slowed down by this time of the year,   but the weather has just been gorgeous so there are still quite a few!

Please visit my side bar to see "Where I Party"  and stop by and visit a few of these great blogs!
