I got the following items
for a total cost of $10
the biscotti jar was 3.50
and you'll see the chair price in a min
so everything else all together
was 3.50

I found the sizing 
on the back of the pattern

Size 12
Bust 30 in
waist 25

I forgot the bowl

This chair was

I plan to shabby chic it
which will come to a huge surprise
to everyone who
knows me
however the chair

  3. Jo you found some great bargains but I must admit the chair is my favorite! Can't wait to see it in all it's shabby chic glory!

  4. That chair is amazing!! Only three dollars?! That's a steal. :) Good bargain hunting! Visiting from Rhoda's party! :)

  5. Great scoop on those bingo cards and the chair. I can never find great chairs like that.

  6. Love the bingo cards!!!!! Awesome finds!

  8. Wow, You did really well! That pattern sizing is too funny! I think the bingo cards are my favorite, but the chair is pretty awesome as well :-)

  9. Jo, Where in the heck did you get the chair? Certainly not our GW!!! It should turn out great. :-) Sue

  10. Love the biscotti jar and that chair will look great! Nice finds!

  11. Fun finds! Can't wait to see the chair redone!

  12. Ohhh great bargains. That chair is awesome. Very pretty bowl and LOVE those bingo cards. About that pattern...I think all those women must have bound themselves to have waists like that. Or could be the girdles that everyone wore!

  13. I can't wait to see the chair redone. Be sure to post it.

  14. What great finds! Every week is an adventure as we head out to the garage sales and then to a couple of thrift shops. Breakfast ends the morning..what fun. Your chair will be lovely. What a great find!

  15. Great items, love the detail in the bowl!

  16. Wow...great finds...LOVE the chair and it will look great "shabbied up"

  17. Wow, wonderful finds! The size on that pattern is hysterical. There was a vintage blouse pattern in the sewing maching I posted last week for VTT and it was the same thing- a size 12 but HARDLY today's size 12! Ha! Happy VTT!

  18. You had a very successful day when you found all these goodies. I enjoy bingo, and I really like the old fashion way of playing with cards. It's not done that way anymore - computers.

  19. Great it when that happens. The chair is a great find. Have a great VTT!

  20. Incredible finds, I have to come check out the Goodwill in Ohio :)!!

  21. Oh, I never find that kind of stuff at my Goodwill. Maybe I need to venture out further. That bowl is gorgeous!

  22. You did awesome! $3.00 for the chair...that is the best :)

  23. That is a really interesting chair. I might have the same or almost in my basement...

    Happy VTT!

  24. Sizes 11 and 12 are a lot bigger than that now!
