Mother Daughter Day

We interrupt your regular planned vacation posts to inform you of awesome deals that I found this weekend with my mom while yard sale-ing. Now, while the rest of the finds were great, the last one was really the jackpot! Driving past the townhouse there were a few chairs and a bakers rack sitting outside. I told mom it was her call to go in or not (I'm so glad we did!) It took a little bit to take in the variety of stuff they had. Eventually more things I liked kept popping up. We ended up spending a good bit of time there. The sisters running it were all very sweet, making us a little (and by the end very large) pile so we could keep looking.

This 3-piece luggage set was the first thing I saw. I passed by it a few times without thinking much of it. When finally, the bag in the front really stood out. Since not being a winner in a recent Jo-Totes giveaway, and not having that much money to get the beautiful Gracie Mustard camera bag, to be able to find something pure vintage and in great condition, I couldn't resist. The sisters all gathered around to watch as I opened each piece, I just kept falling in love. They made me a great offer so I could get all 3 and keep them together. 

This is the key. Adorable right? 

 On the floor next to the luggage was a medium-sized box filled with cameras. While sifting through them (and knowing me) I couldn't not get all of them, even though I have a few of these models already. You can never have too many vintage cameras! Some have already found permanent places in the house, while the others were placed with the rest of my collection.
