Rummage Sale Finds

Today was the fall Rummage Sale at the Parkdale United Church. I really enjoy this sale because it is always packed with vintage finds and neat collectibles at exceptional prices. I had $10 in loose change and here are some of my fab finds!

I scored these 2 vintage table clothes for $3 a piece! I was in the market for a fall themed tablecloth so I was very pleased when I found this one. I love the pop of orange and green!

I'm always on the hunt for unusual kitchen gadgets and when I found this vintage metal cherry pitter I couldn't help but snatch it up! It was a real bargain at 10 cents!! I threw a retro-inspired Bridal shower  (details on my sister's blog) for my BFF and her aunt had one of these that belonged to her mother. I believe they date from the 1950s. Can't wait for cherry season to try it out.

I have just started to collect vintage christmas decor and this rummage sale had plenty! I found this interesting Christmas Countdown Candle or in Swedish "Jules kalender Lys" made by the Asp-Holmbald company for 50 cents. Looks vintage so it may not be lit but admired for years to come!

I also managed to find some sweet Christmas ornaments and a package of lace paper doilies with a poinsettia motif all for 50 cents. I was super excited to find a NAPCO CHRISTMAS TREE KNEE HUGGER ELF!! I already have a larger one so now he has a friend. A mini hand knitted stocking, a little wooden angel from Sweden and nothing says Canadian like a bonhomme de neige carnaval! Eh! 
Did you find any fab and thrifty finds this weekend? If so, do tell...
