Today was another auction in Osage County. . . Missouri that is.
Let me show you a few things that were there.A double wedding ring quilt top.
A double wedding ring quilt. (It had a few stains.)
A nice hand quilted churn dash quilt. It had a really neat big flower printed back.
A complete featherweight, including original grease tube and oil can. It sold for $225.
A lonely featherweight in a card board box. It sold for $175.
Tons of vintage 36 inch fabric.
Feed sacks, now these knocked my socks off. They were divided into 5 stacks and sold per stack. They brought right at $500 for all 5 stacks.
Some of this vintage fabric came home with me. However it's not for me. It's for my friend Mara.
Trading stamp books, most were full ones too!
I drooled. I'm sure it cleans better than my HE washer that is agitator free!
Crocks, crocks, and more crocks.
The one he's holding went for $135.
This one sold for $170.
This Western 15 gallon sold for $165. There was an 8 gallon Western with fruit markings. It sold for $135. A 12 gallon Western with the mother in law tongue markings sold for $150. A 12 gallon Western with complete handles sold for $110.
The blacksmith bought this knife. His dad worked for Eagan Tire company in the 50's and 60's. It was a knife just like the blacksmith was given one Christmas. He lost it years ago, but now he has a brand new one!
I saw the thimbles and since they were also an advertisement for Eagan, I bought them too. Inside of each holder is thread, needles, and safety pins.
This is what I came home with for Mara.
These 3 pieces I pulled out to show you their sales tag. The first one was from F. W. Woolworth Co. 2 yards at .39 cents. The middle one was from J.J. Newberry Co 5-10-25 cent stores for .35 cents a yard. The striped one is also from Woolworth's for .39 cents per yard.
The next 3 pictures are of fabric I did bid on for myself, mainly for the tags. However sadly, I didn't win these.
South Side Dry goods is the store where I bought the fabric for my wedding dress. However, not in 1945 as this ticket indicates.
I am now the owner of sewing machine #11. This is a Singer 301. I thought that would complete my set. I have now been told by my sewing machine man Phil, that I really need a Singer 201-2.
Oh well, there is always the sale tomorrow!
