Okay here are some more amazing finds I bought at the Store:
1. I got around 50 vintage greeting cards from the 20's, 30's, 40's and 50's. They are the cutest and more detailed cards, some are fuzzy, like the chick, some are on a removeable stick which can double as a wand, some have feathers, some have foil, fabric and trimmings, ribbon, and embossed, the insides of each card have illustrations too. I love them, especially the circus style ones which I photographed together and then photographed the sweet cupcake chic ones together.

2. I also discovered some beautiful cabinet cards and photographs on this trip, One had a girl sitting in a make believe garden in the photographers studio, the other has 2 children dressed in flapper style clothes, the others look like communion gowns and wedding gowns. I also picked up old Ginny doll ads, raggedy ann print from 1930, 1982doll magazine, Mozart music book (for my vintage book classes) and ephemera.

3. My hunt wasn't over yet, picked up a large tarnished silver plated bowl

Plus the foll0wing items, which I haven't had a chance to photograph yet:

4. Sterling silver, not plated, incomplete silverware in wooden, velvet lined box
5. World War 2 extra large clothing/supply trunk
6. Clemente wooden baseball bat (That one was for Glenn)
7. Vintage woman in costume print in old frame
8. Huge, no enormous box of old/vintage shine bright and other Christmas bulbs, glass ornaments, tinsel garland, paper garland, cards, ads and more! Dating between the 20s-50's

My Mother had some great finds as well:
Old hankerchiefs, 2 Kewpie dolls (she got to them before I did, I'm still working on her for the other one, LOL), 3 vintage woman in costume prints-Victorian, an old sewing iron from 1900's, a small tea set and doll house miniatures, a lamp, fireplace set from England, jewelry, 2 mammy dolls, campbell kids dolls and an old vitorian poem book.

Let's just say it was a day filled with vintage and cupcake bliss, not to mention the scrumptious chocolate mousse cupcake we each picked up on the ride home with a large coffee, and her tea, we needed to re-fuel after that excursion.

What fun! You found some great things! I went to a faire yesterday with my SIL and picked up a long-coveted dolly for only $20! I love treasure hunting!
