Sunday night when I posted my thrifty finds from the past weekend I left some out. Not because I didn’t want to share, but because I had put them away and did not what to go get them for pictures…….once it is away I am so done
I am lazy oh so organized like that. However I though about it and really could not let the week pass with out sharing my favorite find of the week.
On Friday my oldest(19 year old) and I headed to a couple of sales with the babies before she had to go to work. There was an estate sale I had to go to about 15 miles away out in the boon docks. I wanted to go just to get one thing… a box of vintage postcards. They had pictures of them online and they looked YUMMY! Well after the longest drive in history
I my kids have no patience, we finally arrive. I had to get the other kids to school and the sale started at 8am, as a result it had already been going strong for over 2 hours. However when we pull up there are tons of people still there. OH NO! I was hoping it was so far out nobody would want to drive out there. Rotten luck! Everything was outside under several tents and in some outbuildings. I searched and searched….then finally right as I was giving up there they were in the last tent….all the way in the back of the tent. Man these people making me work for my treasures. Well then I see the price. $30.00. Thirty dollars. Well I really want them. But $30. So I count them. Each one. I stop at 100 postcards. They are from the turn of the last century through the 1920’s there may be some from a little later that aren’t postmarked, maybe.
Well I still don’t want to pay$30. As if. So I ask the dealer running the sale if he can do better. “The first day.” UM YEA. “The best I can do is $25.” SOLD!
So you may be wondering where is the fabulous find. Well wait no longer here they are.
I would love more info. on this political cartoon.
When I saw these picture postcards of Paris made in France I had to have them!
Well I hope you like my find as much as I do. I can’t wait to go out again this weekend and see what new treasures I will find. Are you looking forward to it too?
