Girls gone shopping ... and can you identify these items?

I had the best time last week with my aunt and my sister-in-law.
We shopped from Houston to Austin, stopping at as many antique stores and malls we could find. What a blast! I even learned that shopping at thrift stores can be an adventure that almost matches fancy antique stores. Who knew??
It was fun.

I picked up a few items that I may or may not keep. You know the saying...
"One (wo)man's treasure...."

Here are just a few of my purchases. Let's see if you can identify them... and maybe I'll find out that I am correct!

I bought this only because it reminded me of seeing two young girls in a local
antique store shopping for vintage clothing and purses. Their bright tattoos did
not actually speak to my impression of girls liking this sort of attire, but
I have no experience with young girls' preferences.
A little elbow grease should help with this purse.

Okay... now the jury is still out as to whether or not this is the real stuff.
During the period this pattern of glass was made
some years later it was reproduced.
What say you?

FYI: I do plan to unpack the china and punch bowl soon and when I do
I will feature it on my blog.
It's a promise!

Pop over to My Romantic Home to enjoy
more Show and Tell Fridays!

I really don't know about any of it but to me the best part would have been to be with an aunt and and laughing and eating out and having a great day! Come say hi :D

I hope you get your purchases identified by some blogger here. Shopping with your family sounds like a hoot.
