Are you having spring break where you live? It isn't this week where we live, judging by the massive numbers of cars by the grade school at the end of our street. With the cooler than usual temps, pictures in the paper of kids by the Gulf on Galveston looked more like refugees from eastern Europe than frolickers chasing the sun. The weather was very grim last week, but that didn't stop me from attending the Interfaith Ministries rummage sale, though. Here are some of the things found there:
A couple of books and cards, two reproduction glass refrigerator dishes with yellow and red lids respectively, vintage ornament holders, one holiday tin, a sweater to the right, Talbot's twin set to the left. It's black with a narrow tan stripe. One package of yo yo pompoms, three silk ties and the bag hanging from the chandelier. It attracted me because I like sunflowers, but it was a must buy when it dawned on me that there are tiny tabby cat faces peering between the blooms. Not shown gray Dockers for Mr. B. Trixie came by to check it out, too.
I also stopped at Family Thrift where my new bedskirt was located, but also picked up:
The main reason it came home with me was because the bottom still has remnants of its original price sticker that shows it was sold at W. T. Grant's. You know you're old when you remember Grant, Kresge and Woolworth stores! Oh, and let's not forget Ben Franklin, all but a memory now.
Have a good day, and stay tuned for more birdie cheer soon!
