Liberty Antiques Festival, Part II

As promised, here’s what went home with me:

A little gift for Tim.  He loves old matchbooks, and the Pioneer Club is one of our Vegas favorites.

A 1930 Sears catalog.  I love these for dating and for fabric identification:

I had to have these lawn chairs.  I’ve been looking for a pair for a while at a reasonable price:

Super seahorse fabric, soon to be a casual blouse for the beach:

A sports cap, probably late 40s.  You’d be surprised at how hard it is to find items like this:

A super pair of 1960s booties.  I love these so much:

And I rarely buy aprons, but this one I had to have.  The print is of postcards from around the USA.

Plus four 1950s The State magazines (a North Carolina travel and industry magazine)  and a black and lace early 1930s dress.  I spent a total of $106.  So, how did I do?

How’d you do? You done good! Really great finds, Lizzie. I’m having trouble choosing a favorite, but I think the boots are something else!

That haul qualifies for a prize, I reckon, especially at that total expenditure! 

I agree with Holly – everything is a prize item, but those boots are super special. Are you going to wear them or are they destined for the collection?

Sarah, They are for the collection, as they are too large for me. But I’d love to have a pair that fits! Small Earth Vintage had a similar pair on etsy a while back, and I’ve kicked myself a 1000 times for not snapping them up.
