Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! Do you shop antique malls for hidden bargains? I know several bloggers who have booths at antique malls and I bet you know a few, too. I think at times there is a faulty assumption that items will be overpriced but that isn't always the case. This week's fabulous features are bargains scored at an antique mall that I visit occasionally. It's a favorite because some of the vendors offer prices comparable to those of thrift stores--it just takes a little hunting and knowing where to look. I adore vintage postcards and couldn't wait to tuck this pretty floral friendship card into a frame on my gallery wall, plus it's not the only one I found...
...I also brought home a pair of sweet Easter postcards.
My favorite find from the antique mall is this vintage chalkware shepherd. It's very similar to the figures of my heirloom nativity set. I also have a different use in mind, coming soon!
You know I can't pass pretty vintage linens and this crocheted tablecloth is a beauty!
Last, a beautiful vintage children's book published in the Netherlands in 1935. The title is translated Hans the Tower Crow and it is a picture card album.
Most of the card spaces are empty, but the illustrations and cover alone were worth the price.
Until next time, happy hunting!
