As I love anything vintage, I am always excited to find things like I found yesterday at an estate sale.
The coffee service is silverplated, and I love it just as is~ tarnish and all. It will stay that way. The plate under the creamer may be real silver, and that only cost me $1.00! We need to look into that a bit further. Arent the 2 wicker trays so pretty?? I love to get my hands on old wicker, especially when its not broken. I think Im all ready for a tea party~
The sticker below, was on this beautiful compote, and it was only $5.00! Again, in perfect condition. Its pretty heavy also.
This is a shot of the whole compote. It will look very nice in my dining room filled with seasonal bits of nature~ shells, gourds, pine cones, little robins eggs, etc.
There were also a couple of postcards from the fifties, One is of some older ladies selling flowers on a street in Raleigh, NC. The others are the same- all from a motel of the the same time period, but in Florida.
After our yardsaleing was done, my husband and I snuck off to our favorite little breakfast place in town. I love Saturday mornings!!!
Many thanks for stopping by...
