Sunday Yard Sale Bounty

I had the good fortune to drive past a sign advertising a Sunday Yard Sale at a time when I didn't have any family members in the car with me to moan and groan about having to stop. This is what I found:
This is an announcement about two women attorneys joining a Washington, D.C. law firm. They are the Misses Emma E. Harris and Alice M. Perazzi. I would love to know what year this was. The photo below was in the same envelope. I wonder if this could be Miss Emma or Miss Alice, or if they just happened to live in the same envelope together. The woman who sold them to me didn't know.
I also found all of this gorgeous tatted lace. The smallest round doilies will be used to make some of my tiny tea jewelry. The tiny perfume bottles will be individually wrapped and tucked into my daughter's Christmas stocking. She loves tiny things as much as I do.
Now this is the part that will make you wish you had been with me: I got everything for $7. I've already had seven dollars' worth of fun photographing it!
