UPDATE: Sold for $49.99 plus s/h, which is not shabby. Much better than they would have received at a rummage sale, but I believe there are pieces that go for a lot more.

I will probably keep this piece since it is damaged. However, vintage cookie jars sell well via Ebay. Try a search on Ebay for Vintage Cookie Jar and choose the completed listings - next choose Price & Shipping: Highest to Lowest and see what I mean. May you find some big sellers our there... or some you would love to keep for yourself! :)

Found this site today... http://www.videojug.com/film/how-to-make-homemade-face-cream
Think I might try out this recipe... been trying to find a more frugal way for skin care.
(Sorry, for some reason the link was not working, but is fixed now. Enjoy!)
UPDATE: Made this using shea butter in place of carnuba wax and my own aloe vera gel - expressed from a leaf. Also, used the Rose Otto oil (it is less expensive). Have to say my face felt more hydrated than it has in a long time. Will report back after I have used it for a bit.

Close-up of the cute dog pin cushion from the same sale.
Found this sweet wood thread rack full of wooden spools at a yard sale.
Believe it or not the below are considered vintage as well - they are from the 70's and are Ethnic Folkwear patterns. These are three of five I picked up at a thrift store in Jax, FL. They were $1.00 each. The envelopes have some wear, but the patterns are uncut and factory folded. They are listed on Ebay now from $9.99 to $12.99 each. I was not tempted to keep them as I do not plan on tackling such sewing projects. :)

I may use some of these hankies as pockets on the aprons I make from other vintage linens. Any other ideas of uses for vintage linens?
