This past Saturday Dave and I went to the big garage sale in Springfield again. I was really looking forward to the mental break from the kids (and the world), but Sam woke up burning up with fever so my trip was rushed a bit to get back to her. (It's a LONG drive and she was crying on the phone about wanting mommy.)
I did pick up a few things I really love:
Those are three candle holders and maybe a napkin holder? The napkin thing is dated 1942. I buy the German stuff from a very german woman named Ilsa. She knows a lot about all of her things and is always happy to talk about them. She said the candle holders were maybe a little earlier, but also black forest things.
This is a French poster. I think it was a school aid? It has wooden things at the top and bottom for hanging in the classroom.
