Today's finds in the garage sale!

I am just coming back from the garage sale! I found a whole ancient coffee set, I love the colour, a pearly pale blue.
I think it dates back to the 50's, not quite sure.
an old confirmation coffee cup( if i have a look at the dress, must be around50's
another one
A whole set of bone china, about "Molière's plays" the play's title are different on the cups and saucers. I have never seen that before and it was made by the natonal company of bone china.
I think they are valuable because I have the whole set.
This one is "Monsieur de pourceaugnac"
"les femmes savantes"
"L'amour médecin"
" Le tartuffe"
"Les fourberies de Scapin"
These are not valuable, but i like "Millet".This one is from Austria

And that one from Germany
This old little chair
And look at that... these vintage magazines dating back to the 50's
I LOVE that dress!
I am glad i woke up early, it was freezing cold, but i was there before the antique dealers. Well now i must clean all of these and find room! Have a nice day.

Wow Catherine, what great buys. Love all the magazines and they look in pristine condition.
I particularly like the cup and saucer from Germany, I wouldn't want to drink from it but have it on display, the colours look stunning.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, I am sure you will spend some of it reading your vintage magazines. Jackie in Surrey, UK.

Catherine, You did so well at the sale! I love the coffee service in blue! I think those might be from the 40's...very popular. I once had a tea service in a pearly green with black trim. I love the shape of your cups better. The magazines are really great! It is fun to see fashions from that time.
