SLIM PICKINGS!

It has been pretty slim pickings around here at the yard sales the last couple of weeks. But, I was pleased with what I did find. The blue Windsor Castle plate has an old Johnson Bros. mark, and was $2.00. I paid 50 cents total for both of the etched candle holders - they are quite heavy and appear to be old with nice etching of tulips on all four sides.

I love little, old books especially red ones. The top one is an 1891 dictionary with an inscription to Lewis from a teacher. The bottom book is of mystery short stories from 1927. I paid 25 cents for each book.

Please go by the following link parties to check out the other participants.

You got some great buys at the yard sale. I am not finding much at yard sales around here. I do better at antique stores.
