I was off to the nursery this weekend to pick out colorful succulents for my vintage pots, but I ended up stopping at four different yard sales along the way. My favorite two were held at historic homes shaded by gigantic trees dripping with Spanish moss. One sale was hosted by a mod collector and another by a reseller. I stayed too long and spent too much, but I love the mostly 1960s scores I came home with:
First witness a find that was on my wish list, a matching set of mod lamps. I'd love any information on these lamps if you have them. You can use them three ways, with just the base lit, with both the base and the top lit, or just the to lit.
I love how they illuminate my bedroom, but I'm selling them for $32.00 for the pair if anyone's interested. I've never seen anything like them.
Next stunning score, this gorgeous large ship artwork on velvet! It fits right in with my decor. So tempted to keep the beautiful thing (about 18" x 24") but it's for sale for $60.00 in Southern Crossing, get it now before the price goes up for Etsy!
On the less-vintage side, look, a beautiful Ugly Doll! An impulse purchase that I paid way more than I should have for. I just love them and have good luck selling them. It's $12.00 for anyone who's interested.
Another impulse purchase (too, damn, many this weekend!), some lovely vintage fabric calendars and a tea towel from 1967, 1959, and 1979. ----> On Etsy here and here.
Yuko thinks they're her bed when I try to photograph them. She's so cute.
I don't usually buy vintage clothes but this handmade tiny paisley number called out to me. I found a hat and white cat eye sunglasses to pair with it and have it hanging in Southern Crossing, trying to sell the whole outfit for $30.
The outfit reminds me of Megan Draper at the beach in the season opener for Mad Men.
I loved these "Tan" magazines from 1969, I'd never heard of the publication and love to see faces I can relate to in 60s media! ---->> See inside on Etsy
I also scooped up Ingenue, a teen magazine from the 1960s with Twiggie on the cover. It's on Etsy but I may end up selling the pages individually. --->> See inside on Etsy
And then we have a beautiful barware set and a cool wall-mounted mirrror, it flips to reveal a magnified size. Selling the mirror for $8 and the barware set for $25.00 for some slight damage on the handle of the pitcher. ---->> On Etsy
For my only flea market find this weekend, we have this beautiful, colorful owl wall hanging. It's HUGE! Had to pose with it so you could get a better idea of scale on the piece.
Selling it for $19 if anyone's interested, it'll be more once my big background comes in the mail and it hits Etsy!
Time for me to rush back to work! Some odd glitch happened where I had to resize all the photos for these posts again this morning, ah! Tea, need lots of tea. Remember, everything in my haul posts is for sale. Furthermore, I've been making lots of of deals/group deals with my Etsy shop items for with frequent-shoppers and blog readers, so let me know if you wanna make a deal on anything. I'm still clearing things out to make room for the new!
