Rummage Sale Goodness Pt. 2

Today's post is part II of the Thursday Rummage Sale loot. 

I always find some vintage clothes. As a matter of fact, two of the best outfits I own came from this rummage sale. The mustard sweater is for me, I love that color and don't have enough of it in my wardrobe. The sweater vest is ostensibly for my husband, but who am I kidding, it'll most likely end up in my Etsy store. He's just not a sweater vest kind of guy, no matter how dapper it is. 

The feedsack dress is for my daughter. I find a couple of these every year at this sale. I'm sure they were made by the same lady. They are not new, but appear never worn- I wonder why she only donates one or two at a time? Nevertheless, I always grab them. My daughter loves them- she literally wore the others to pieces. They are the perfect vintage dresses- cotton, cute details (love that scalloped collar!), hand made, and just zip up the back. I wish I had a couple for me!

I have been falling big time lately for hand-painted glassware. (I'm talking to you, Fire King Orchard Blossom!) I actually have a set of frosted tumblers that are similar to this pattern but green.  The pitcher and cup are quite small- about a quart- so probably for orange juice. I can just see them on the nightstand in a guestroom. They were only $1 for the pair. The wood plaque was for my son who didn't get to go since he was in school. He's my sidekick when we go shopping and I'm sure he would have found some cool stuff I missed if he was along!

I actually missed these the first time around and found them with a little help from sidekick #2 (aka my daughter, who loves anything girly). She was digging through the purses looking for pink or purple ones- she just turned 4- and came up with these. I love them! They're from the 50s or 60s and have that fake plastic beading on them. Totally worth the $2 each for the kitsch factor alone.

This might be my favorite find of the day. I've been looking for a 50s barbeque apron for some time. They are just so graphic and funny! I love how the guy has his martini and then the ghost of the steer appears and says "Now don't louse it up!"

It was only 75 cents, and perfect for my husband, who is a butcher, if I let him wear it. ;)

I'm heading out to another rummage sale today, hopefully I'll have more goodies to post soon!


  1. Great finds! I especially love the apron for your husband. He should definitely get to wear it. :)

  2. That pitcher set is lovely, although I usually go for the brighter colored stuff! I have been seeing a lot of Earth toned items lately, and they are fun in the Fall!

  3. I loved the plastic beaded purses and wallets when I was little - still do! And the graphic and joke in the apron is great. Lucky finds!

  4. I LOVE that apron! If you decide to ever sell it please let me know!
