Day Filled With Treasures

What a beautiful day it was!  Not only was the weather perfect, but there were sooooooo many sales.  I was out all day and must have stopped at over 50 sales.  Many were in subdivisions.  I found a few treasures along the way.  It was interesting to see that many of the sales did not have many items for sale. 

I took the kids after school to the rummage sale at Grace Lutheran Church in Woodstock.  I didn't think that there would be anything good left since we got there one hour after it started.  How wrong I was!  There was a table filled with milk glass for $2 to $4 each.  I bought so many to add to my collection.  I was so excited.  I also bought a tri fold vintage frame for $2, a mirrored tray for $1, some toys for the kids,  a vase for $2, vintage napkins for 25 cents, and jewelry.  Those items must have come from an estate sale that I went to a few weeks ago.  There were lots of vintage dishes there also.  I saw a cameo bracelet at the estate sale for $18 and didn't want to spend that much.  It was there at the rummage sale for 25 cents so of course I had to buy it.  I was surprised that no one had bought it yet.  I got a few other jewelry pieces that were priced from 25 cents to $1.  I just love rummage sales because of the treasures that you can find for good prices.  I now have to work on where I am going to put all of this milk glass.  I also found a milk glass cake plate for $2 at a garage sale today.  Other items I found were a lamb planter for $2, a giant white pottery turtle for $3, a vintage pyrex bowl with lid for 50 cents, two vintage plates for $2 each, and a sunflower cake plate.  After spending all day treasure hunting, I found the most and best treasures at the rummage sale.

Tomorrow is a rummage sale on Walkup in Crystal Lake (not far from Crystal Springs Road going towards Crystal Lake),  two estate sales and lots of garage sales.  I hope I can fit it all in.  I am sure going to try hard.  I hate to miss a sale.
