Glass Telephone Pole Insulator; Vintage Blue Evening Bag; Vintage Camera Bag; Vintage Napkins; All: Estate Sale 5-16-10
You may be curious about the unusual blue glass insulator. I know I was the first time I saw one! Apparently, they used to be placed on top of telephone poles to keep the wires insulated from the wooden poles. I like them because they're so pretty :) We have a little collection going on our windowsill. (Here is some more info on them if you're interested from collectorsweekly.com.)
Now onto the cute things! I love this little evening bag, and when the checkout lady rang it up at 75 percent off, it was less than a dollar :) She said she was jealous! The camera bag is neat because the strap is detachable, and there's a longer one inside for over-the-shoulder carrying. And finally, the little tea towels were an irresistible 25 cents!
Whew! That's finally all that I got from the estate sale last Sunday. The total for everything, plus two things for the hubby, was a mere $5. Now that's a deal, my friends.
