Rainy Day Treasure



There was more to be found in addition to the cigar box treasures at this rainy weekend sale...



I love this pair of opera glasses...bought for a fraction of their value...



Always attracted to these Cornishware bowls...I had to bring them home with me...



Great books at only fifty cents a piece...



I was happy to find some gardening titles for my collection...



Two old brass keys, a pair of change purses and a black Victorian bow...



A bit of pretty blue bling... earrings for 25 cents...



Another bargain book which is as interesting on the inside as the cover appears...



Crochet hooks and thread in brilliant blues and green...

Despite the rain...it was a successful treasure hunting weekend...
I was able to find some bargains, catch up and visit with my girlfriend and bring home a few goodies to add to my collections and art supplies...
Thanks for coming along!
:) Laura

Hello Laura, such wonderful treasures! I have a pair of opera glasses that I love, mine are Chevalier from Paris and I got them at a fraction of the cost these days too... I have had mine for some time, I see the price is skyrocketing now! I wish I could shop where you do! Bisous... Julie Marie

Hello Laura

I can't believe what wonderful bargains you have found! My Aunt had a very similar pair of opera glasses. The book covers are so detailed and beautiful! Your house must be such a joy to live in, full of treasures!
