And that's the kind of day I had yesterday, a serendipitous one!
I found quite a few fabulous items... this string of vintage mercury glass beads for $2.00.
Two of these vintage mercury glass sprays for $3.00. And they are in pristine condition!
The cutest little box of teeny-tiny mercury glass balls... for $1.00... and I'm not sure which I like more, the little balls or the box!
A slightly bigger box of mini balls... with another fabulous box, also $1.00.
And I couldn't pass up these little deer... a momma and babies. I got 5 or 6 packages for $2.00. Perhaps to use in a mason jar snow globe or two?
Some vintage balls, still wrapped in tissue... made in Japan. And a bargain at $3.00.
Sugar bells... the cutest little ones... also made in Japan (see the label) and both of these were just $.50!
These funky little odds and ends... probably to use as package tie-ons or in corsages... were just $.50 for all three.
This box of small vintage ornaments was $6.00.... some of the ornaments are probably from World War II when the mercury glass/Shiney Brites were not "silvered".
And this matching set, still in it's box with a tree topper and all was just $7.00!
These little mercury glass candles were $2.00 each... my husband wasn't a believer when I showed these off but aren't they fabulous? I can hardly wait to start decorating for Christmas....
And the best find of the day? Why it was serendipitous? While standing in line I meet this fellow blogger (Hi Holly!)!! What a nice and unexpected start to a wonderful day... she even helped me find a couple must haves at the sale... obviously she's checked out Red Gate Farm a time or two because they all had "me" written all over it!
So, a great way to start a day and a short work week... a fun sale full of vintage holiday finds, a day with my mom and FINALLY meeting a blogger friend!
