Vintage Plates

Yesterday was milk glass day.  Today was vintage plate day.  I just love when I find multiples of an item on the same day.  I went to the church rummage sale on Walkup today in Crystal Lake and found some cute things.  I got a small wooden box for $3 (which Ethan took), a cute vintage dog that is a pincushion for 50 cents, 2 necklaces for $1 each and some purses for $1 each to use the handles. 

I went around to many garage sales today and found a few treasures:  vintage doilies and tablecloth for $2-$3 each, and then I stumbled upon my treasures for the day.  I always go to this garage sale on Ridgeland Ave in Woodstock.  They had so many great items.  I found those vintage plates for 75 cents to $1 each, an aluminum pitcher by Rodney Kent for 50 cents (Wow!  What a find!), a mirrored tray for 75 cents (I had always wanted one and now I own 3), a vintage shell pottery piece for 50 cents, a milk glass miniature cup for 25 cents and a turtle for 25 cents.  That sale was so much fun!  I am really getting into those vintage dishes and I look for them everywhere now.  I look for floral patterns in mostly pinks or yellow or whatever catches my eye.  I hope I'm not starting a new collection.  Collections just seem to happen.

I'm really looking forward to the Elkhorn Flea Market on Sunday.  The weather is supposed to be beautiful.  Last year it rained a few times so I'm looking forward to the nice weather that is promised so far.  Keep your fingers crossed for sun.
