Yard sales are always in short supply on a holiday weekend. There was one advertised and it was literally up the street from me - but they never said an exact date. I drove up every day starting Wednesday through Saturday and they were never having it. Maybe it will be next week, I don't know. But, it sure bugged me BIG TIME. Luckily, a friend called to say that she had a plethora of things that she didn't want to deal with anymore. Things she was over, but knew still had value or use - so would I like to come pick a bit? WOULD I?
So, I did.
She had tubs and tubs and tubs and TUBS of linens. Good golly, Miss Molly. Barkcloth, vintage, feedsacks, tablecloths, chenille, lace, quilts and more. I pulled out anything that looked bright and happy and old. Kind of like me. :D She didn't really have an idea of individual prices, so I just made a pile of what I wished I could buy. In the end, the price was really, really good so I was able to bring it all home! Yay, me!
I made myself go home and do all my chores before I took the time to sit down and look through it all. I like to make myself work for the pleasure of going through my junk. I'm weird that way.
There were 13 tablecloths - nearly all were perfect without stains or holes.
Love the flowers on this one.
This one is a bold all over print - really great.
Wilendur Red Roses. Fabulous!
Wilendur PINK Roses. I am not a rose person - but this is fabulously beautiful. Sadly, someone had cut a big chunk off one corner. WHY would anyone do that???? I was able to cut the end off evenly so it still works on a smaller table (it was HUGE). But, still....*sniff!
Smaller Wilendur Red Roses.
Bad photo - but a gorgeous heavy big tablecloth with perfect colors.
Lots of PINKS!
Geraniums on this one - I think I have one like this with the red and aquas reversed.
Strawberries, blueberries and flowers.
And a small print PINK rose cloth.
THIRTEEN tablecloths all at one time.
BUT WAIT! There's MORE!
Several pretty bright tea towels.
And feedsacks! Uncut feedsacks.
Nice red with flowers.
This is totally NOT my color scheme - but it is the prettiest one I have ever seen.
Aquas and pinks.
GINGHAM with periwinkle flowers.
Pinks, reds and flowers.
And, happy bows with flowers.
There's more, but I imagine half of you are in a linen comma right now.
But, think hankies, fabrics, napkins and more.
SO MUCH MORE.
It was a really, really good day.
