Saturday's Yard Sale Finds

I have a penchant for old suitcases - perhaps it's because I love travelling so much? Who knows, but I simply could not pass up these vintage beauties. Alligator or crocodile I believe - I love the warm brown color.

I grabbed this silver box, which was very tarnished, and asked the price. "One dollar." the crusty man said. "Sold!" I replied. I could not love it more!

I also got this lovely carpet from the 1930's for a whole five bucks.

I hadn't been yard saling in a while so I was pleased with my finds. My sister Melody, who joined me, was looking for a tent. We didn't think we'd find one but at the second-to-last stop, there it was - all set up even! A perfect end to a perfect morning. :)
