Beautiful day for sale-ing~

Well, I managed to go to two block sales today. This is the start of the sale-ing season for me. Ahhhhhhhh to be looking for treasures... arrgh! Here is my bounty!
I got this antique picture frame with the hand painted photo of a baby in it for... hold onto your hats.... .50cents! What??? I had asked the gal, "How much for the baby picture?" You know, playing it all cool~ She replied, "Fifty cents".... I said, "For that" as I pointed to it. She said yes-- you could sense that she was waiting for me to say a quarter lol... I stuck it into my handy-dandy shopping cart and forked over .50cents! Wow!The wire leaf metal basket was $3. It is super lovely, I got compliments on it while holding it-- thats always a good sign its a good buy! The oblong dish, which is actually a beautiful creamy pink was $4. The elderly lady said she had purchased it in 1952 and had it all these years. The white dish with the roses on it was $1. The gal I bought this from said she bought that in England on a trip for a lot of money. I told her, "Why? you could have picked it up at a yard sale much cheaper. lol I also got a Shabby Chic duvet cover with the matching pillow sham for $10, that is the pink floral fabric under all this stuff~The jewelry that is in the dish was .25cents each! The Disney pins were .50cents each. Those run from $5-$10 at Disneyland, I know because I was looking at some just recently at Disneyland. Ohhhhhhhhhh and the gold filigree oval container was .50cents. Fun, fun day of sale-ing!

Wow! Looks like you're having a wonderful time on your weekend-shopping-excursions, already. =)
You have to know that $1 for that roses plate is a huge steal. =) It's one of the most popular (and my absolute fav) china patterns ever made...particularly sought after if stamped "Made in England" on the bottom. It's called "Old Country Roses" by Royal Doulton/Royal Albert...and if you look closely at decorating magazines, movies, and even a lot of art these days, you'll see their plates and saucers...but especially their teacups and teapots...featured. =) Two movies off the top of my head: Anne of Green Gables and Man from Snowy River.
Great deals on everything, though...congratulations! =) I do love that sweet baby frame especially!
