Garage Sale Find

During good weather, my mum and I make a weekly excursion to neighborhood garage sales. Most times we come home empty handed, but every once in a while we find something nice. Now, pair that with my love of linens (OK, I also like china, crystal, books, jewelry...) and I feel really good at the end of the day.

Today, we came across a lady who had some doilies her grandmother had crocheted and of course I bought them all. Pictured below are three light yellow doilies.
A 24" square crocheted (?) scarf which will look terrific on a small table.
Three green and gold crocheted scarves...
( a close-up of the small one.)
Matching pieces with raised flowers and...
another close-up view.
I also bought a round white crocheted scarf, a long white brocade tablecloth in excellent condition (no stains) and 10 off-white brocade napkins.

And what do I like most? The price tag - $4.60!

What a deal! And some of those are very unusual doilies! Very nice.
