I have been away for a few days visiting family in North Alabama. Sisters # 5 and # 3 went with me to an estate sale on Saturday. There were four in that general area and we had every intention of stopping by all of them. We spent all of our time and energy at the first house. There were so many pretty old linens there. That is all we bought...lots and lots of linens. I am still washing and pressing my new inventory of old linens so I am not quite ready to share yet.
On the way back home, I stopped at a thrift store where sister #5 has become pals with the manager. He is so much fun to work with. If he isn't busy, he will take me around and show me things that he thinks I might be interested in - love that!
So here is what I bought from him. He told me that a lady had come in with all of these vintage tiaras. He didn't get the story about them or why she had so many, some duplicates. Maybe she was a judge in a beauty pageant or maybe she was a little beauty queen in her childhood.
This are just a few of this tiara collection. There are over twenty in all. At first I was going to purchase three and when I turned around and saw all of that bling on the counter, I couldn't leave them behind. I bought every single one - even a pink broken one. They were just too sweet to pass up.
I will be listing them at my Etsy shop soon.
My adorable model is one of Caroline's dolls. It was the last doll she got before she thought she was too grown up to be getting dolls from Santa. I miss those doll days!
