The ones I’ve seen in Round Top, TX and other antique places are in excess of $150! Wow, what a steal for $15. I would have hauled it back, too! Good find!

My kids are the same way – a Spiderman lunch box trumps an awesome Bento box any day. Bummer.

What a dream it would be to hit the vide greniers in France! Great finds.

I can totally see it hanging from a doorknob with flowers or from a kitchen cabinet with sweets peeking out the top – so fun! And the dress is going to look great on June!

I would use the wine bottle as a ‘décor’ – element somewhere in the house or outside on the terrace.

Its good for the environment and most baby clothes have barely been worn since they grow so quickly. I ADORE that dress, just beautiful. Perfect finds.

Tue, 28 Jun 2011 03:07:00 +0000 http://www.designmom.com/?p=11980#comment-277514 These are amazing treasures, and the best souvenirs since they all have a story. I still have a sweater I bought 10 years ago in a thrift shop in Switzerland.

My weakness is church rummage sales – just this weekend we bought 40 small classroom chalkboards (for charting graphs I think) for $10! My husband wants to cover a wall with them. We also got a small flat top school desk for our baby boy’s room for $2! And a matching small chair for $5.

ALL OF THEM! But especially that perfect dress that is going to be passed down to your grandchildren as a reminder of the time the whole family lived in France. Brilliant!

I would definitely ship the bottle when you come back stateside. It looks similar to ones on sale at Ballard, Pottery Barn, etc for at least $60.

I packed the pitcher as my carry-on on the plane to make sure it stayed in one piece. You will LOVE your big brown jug when you get it home!! Yea for you!!

I am an avid thrifter, so no way do 2nd hand clothes gross me out. And the story about Betty- that is so my experience with my kids! Also, it reminded me of when I was in high school. My dad and I would go junking together and I found this awesome aluminum lunch box. I covered it with stickers (probably Hello Kitty was in the mix!) and carried it to lunch every day at school! I loved that lunch box…

My sons have the same responses to my “choices” for the accessories.
(This year I tried to get my 1st grade son to choose a hand crafted elephant lunchbox over an IronMan one…I’m good but not that good…I lost)

I used to hide the clock in a drawer at night

Keep those tag sale pics coming! I’m living vicariously through you. This weekend I fell in love with a French metal canister set in orange and thought of you. Going to a French tag sale is now on my bucket list. Meanwhile, I’m working on some paintings featuring those French coffee pots you posted awhile back. Thanks for the inspiration!
