When I went to the auction where I bought my antique quilt, I also bought this…
Linens had been selling and I had bid on a couple bundles but didn’t get any. The linens had sold before the furniture I was waiting for. I was trying to be conservative with my money making sure I had enough money to buy the furniture Hubby wanted. As the linens sold, I was keeping my eye out for this piece. All of the linens had sold then the auctioneer brought up this piece all by itself. I bid immediately because I wanted it….I ended up getting it for $2. No one else bid on it. I was happy.
I need to get some type of string to hang it with and I need to find somewhere in the house to hang it. I really like it as it a perpetual calendar.
Shortly after I bought the calendar, a lot of items came up. An old army bag, a purse and these mittens. I didn’t want the purse or the army bag..but the mittens I liked. I just love hand made things and it make me sad to see them go for little to no money. I ended up purchasing the lot, gloves included for $3.
Once I got to really check the gloves out, they have a little bit of an old smell to them. Does anyone know how to properly launder them? I love them but I would love them more laundered.
The purse went to Goodwill and army bag is going to be put to use transporting quilts for when I am out and about talking to guilds. I think the $5 I spent was a good thing.
Today I am hooking up with the Colorado Lady’s Vintage Thursday.
