The glasses below were discovered at Hospice. They are old but I don't know how old. The glass is delicate and the etching is beautiful. They were an incredible deal to begin with but Hospice Resale was having an 50% off sale on glasses that day. I got 32 vintage pieces for less than $16! I love using them for tea parties.
This next find was unbelievable to me. Someone in the last 40 years (the fabric is polycotton, more cotton than poly) spent untold hours stitching scenes from Bambi on a crib sheet and pillowcase, probably as a gift, and the recipient didn't keep it! I first saw this in the window of an antique store here in St. Petersburg and agonized over the fact that I had spent more than I wanted to that day already and really couldn't get it. I told the dealer that it shouldn't be left in the window to get sun damaged and left. It was still there (but not in the window) over a month later and had a reduced price on it so it came home with me to go in my grandmother's hope chest. Both my teenagers thought it was cute so I know my future grands will use it.
Have a wonderful day!
