Pickin' the Weekend Away!

We thought yesterday was going to be a wash but it was the perfect day to go yard saleing. We started out early in the morning and by 1pm we has made it to eight sales. Since we have sold through most of our inventory at Brimfield we have to start pickin' for the September show.

We had a different strategy this time when planning our route. Instead of staying around our suburban neighborhood we decided to go a little more rural to Rehoboth, Ma. Let me tell you what a difference in what they were selling. 

My score of the day was 106 glass bottles that this man had found buried in his backyard! Some of the bottles date back to 1920 and possibly even earlier!

Overall yesterday I bought a total of 118 glass bottles. I think I have enough vintage glass. I have to keep this in mind over the next couple of months when pickin' or we are going to end up with a booth of just vintage glass.

With these bottles being buried for a few decades...needless to say they needed a good bath!

I thought this would take an hour or so but it actually took most of the afternoon.

Some of the bottles need to soak a little longer than others. I think I may leave them in the sun for a few days with a water and vinegar solution.

Now here comes the fun part! I get to start researching the bottles to see what I have found and how to price them.  Here are a few of my favorites! Feel to reach out if you know anything about these bottles.
