The best find of the day is this vintage, toy cake tin. I just couldn't resist the cheery red and green design.
At the same sale I also found this Ball Mason, Salt and Pepper Set.
I also bought another vintage, leather suitcase. It has a lovely red lining inside.
So that was our adventure at garage sales. Next, we picked up another friend and drove into downtown Los Angeles' Garment District. What a different world that was! There were shops and shops filled with fabric, lace, buttons and so many different types of trim. It was overwhelming. I bought just a handful of buttons. It was a unique experience but almost too much for one day.
The final part of our day found us 55 miles away searching for a thrift store that someone had told us about. It was closed but we explored other thrift stores where I bought some items that I plan to use in future projects.
It has been a long and fun day but now I think I need a nap.
