Less than $2.00 for all these rulers and the yardstick.
A huge bag of old sewing notions for only $10.00. I almost passed it up, but it was in a clear bag and I could see glitter, ribbon, needles, snaps, scissors, thimbles, velcro, lace, etc.
Ah, yes. Butterick's Art of Dressmaking. Copyright, 1927. I love the graphics and some of the chapters are good for a few laughs.

We used to have a Holly Sugar plant here in town.
The prices were a little high on their jewelry table, so I only bought three pieces.
I don't buy a lot of glass, but this blue milk glass egg plate spoke to me. I couldn't pass up the string of chandelier crystals, pink gloves, and the tissue holder.
I should have cleaned these abalone shells before I took the picture; they're actually real colorful with all the grime washed off. Now they're waiting to be dressed up with sparkling jewels. I had to have those old molds and the tarnished silver bowl.
I didn't even notice that this 10" wide bowl was was sterling until I got home. It was only a few dollars and I had to grab it....fast! It says Wallace Sterling 4207 and stamped Grand Baroque on the other end. A quick internet search turned up some amazing results.
Bad girl Monique! Why did you have to autograph the bowl?
Personally, I like a little
tarnish patina, but since I usually buy to resell,
I'm not sure what to do with this. It would look a little better if I tried
to polish it, but might make any flaws stand out too much.
Would you polish it, or keep the patina?
