I hit a really good yard sale a couple of weeks ago, and scored some great buys. I knew when I looked at these plates that they were something nice, but I almost passed them by anyway. However, I just couldn't and besides they were $2 for all 10! I came home and looked them up online. I could only find one site that had a cup and saucer of the same pattern. It was listed at $80, so I'm thinking I got the deal of the day.
Another find at the same sale was this pretty little biscuit barrel for $1. I bought four pieces of fabric for 10 cents a piece, and two wall pockets at $8 for the two along with a few other small things. There were several other really good buys, so I really did practice self-control and not buy things just because they were bargains. I'm trying to decide if I should start an Etsy shop. I love the hunt of vintage bargains, but I don't want to end up on the Hoarders tv show. Anyone know how much record keeping for taxes and such is involved in an Etsy shop. I wonder if it would be worth the time it would take.
