Rummaging 6/17, Part 1

Here are some more finds from my expedition last Thursday! (The raccoons made an appearance because I was cleaning them at the same time I was cleaning everything else and I just couldn't resist.)

l to r: Another Richard Scarry book, my babies!, a coral picture frame from St. Vinnie's, a wooden wall hanging clip with strawberries on it, and a really pathetic picture of the classic doe-eyed kitty.

l to r: Four vintage Avon bottles (the milk can, the rooster, the ice cream cone, and the other yellow canister thingy), a fuzzy bunny bank, a tiny yellow-capped jar, and an Apple Dumplin' mug that actually came from a rummage sale being held by one of my old preschool teachers. She's moving from this giant house in a subdivision on a golf course full of other giant houses to be up north, closer to her kids. The entire golf course used to be her farm and they'd take us there to visit when we were in preschool! It's kind of a total bummer seeing it populated by regulated lamp posts instead of happy cows.

I (still) have more things to post from that day of thrifting, but I saved the two largest items for last. Also, I actually went to the same rummage where I got 3 of the 4 Avon bottles again today with both my parents and picked up (gasp) another vintage Avon perfume bottle. I swear it wasn't there last time! ...although, admittedly, this guy has three plus garages chocked full of cluttered dirty old stuff, so it's likely I might have missed an object or two.

  1. Oh wow, I wish I could have seen the look on your face when you found that Richard Scarry book.
