Vintage Finds

I love going to auction sales.  Poking through everything to find a treasure and then hoping you'll go home with it for a decent price.  Even if I don't walk out with very much, it's always a fun night.  I'm generally buying for the store and my friends are adding to their own collections.  Notable purchases this time were an ugly (according to her husband) green glass and pitcher set and a box full of full length white gloves for Julie. Jen walked out with a creepy (according to me) doll, a beautiful quilt and her daughter made out like a bandit with a tray of jewellery.  Good times.

I was lucky this week.  There were a few items I would have loved to have taken home, but they went waaaay higher than I was prepared to spend.  Even so, my car was filled to the brim with vintage goodness for the store.

I love this sweet little school desk.  Solid pine and heavy.
 With a spot for your ink pot and pencil.
 This fella doesn't want me to sell it.
 It also has a great little drawer under the seat.
You can never pass up a dress form.
 A few marks on it, but that comes with the territory.
A great spot to display your scarves and necklaces.
I have a few more items, but we'll save those for another day.
