Run For Your Life 10/5&6/07

Friday I went to a Sales by Helen, which was held at a gorgeous house on the Main Line. There were antiques from top to bottom. When I opened the door the rooms sang to me! The books I had purchased were all from the '60s and boy were they ever. The pages are filled with orange and vinyl furniture. The find of the day consisted of 4 pairs of toile curtains that fit perfectly in my library, and of course, 5 clocks to add to my collection.

Advice of the Day: Just like we were all taught when were young, Don't ever discuss politics and religion with other people. While waiting in line to enter the sale I was reminded of this lesson. A lady, with a ciggerette hanging from her mouth, was expressing her views on how horrible this country is and almost had to run for her life. Listen to your elders kids and no one will get hurt! lol


1960s Books and 3 of the clocks



Saturday Connie and I met at our usual time and headed out on one of the hottest days. This week there were only about 30 sales, but Connie made out like a bandit. I found a little, glass serving dish with 6 spoons inside. Upon asking the lady how much she proceeded to tell me how they belonged to her great grandmother. Talk about a great find, when I turned them over and discovered they were all sterling silver and for only a buck for the whole thing! I also found 4 hand embroidered hand bags and 2 large mirrors.

I love those '60s decorating books! The Billy Baldwin one used to be a really good seller, like over $100, but I see they only go for about $15 on eBay these days. Sigh.

Looks like you had a great weekend sale-wise. Love the clocks.

Love all your finds. We have nice street fairs but not as many neat places as you...I'm collecting little clocks too. Most of mine are the creamy colored ones and I always hope they work....one of mine has an alarm that goes of at 2, can't stop it from ringing so I just don't wind it.
Happy treaure hunting...Linda
