Estate Sale Pickup! Vintage 1950's 1960s and 1980s Dresses, Vintage Earrings and Aluminum Cups!

Wow, I went to 2 separate Estate Sales this past Weekend and picked up 6 dresses, 3 blouses, Earrings and a set of 8 Aluminum Cups.  Funny, they were both in the same town but wound up going on 2 separate days because they had different start dates. Both Houses were Loaded with vintage Dishes, glass, vases, some very cool lamps and home decor but I try to stick to clothing and jewelry because I get so overwhelmed, I want to buy almost everything!   That is why I don't go to the mall much.   I always got overwhelmed with too many choices and want it all or don't want anything due to quality or price.  So, back to the Estate Sales Pickup!  As for the Dresses: 

A lovely 1950s Royal Blue Taffeta Cocktail Dress with a Metal Zipper and a Rhinestone Brooch that is shaped like a pair of wings.

I do not think the Brooch is original to the dress as it is pinned on at the end of the faux waist sash.  I will be doing some research on that.  This is a Tobie New York Dress and it will be sent to the cleaners for a good cleaning.

I also picked a up a Password game, a la 1967 that I will be keeping and playing with Friends and Family. 

I remember watching the game show on TV with Betty White and her husband was the MC, Al Ludden.  If  you remember the Odd Couple TV Show, Felix and Oscar played a game on the famous game show and Felix was a complete Ninni as usual...this had to be one of my favorite Odd Couple Episodes ever...Here is a clip if you are interested.
The Password Is...... Side Tracked!
