California Treasures

The other day, I shared some photos of our fun weekend in California. Now for the treasures I found junking!

On the way to Old Towne Orange, I spotted a sign for a church lot sale, so we pulled in. For $2, I walked away with a vintage floral pillowcase and a stack of old books. Then we spent most of the day in the antique malls in Old Towne Orange. Here is what I found:

Vintage poodle wrapping paper, sequins, millinery, and bird pin.


Assorted ephemera:


We left Orange and drove to Fullerton to Gilding the Lily. What a FABULOUS store. Here are a few pics from the store:





And this is some of what I brought home - millinery, dresden foil, metal charms, ribbon, and mercury glass buttons.


But my favorite find of the day was vintage wallpaper!! Check out this fabulous poinsettia print.




 
I hope I get back soon. Gilding the Lily also offers classes. The projects look amazing!

Wonderful finds. And I love that store. I try to go junking or antiquing wherever I go. Even if it is just hitting a couple of yard sales. I will post some amazing finds tomorrow that I found at yard sales last week.
