I mentioned a really fantastic estate sale in my last post and I'm trying to not over blow it but it was the BEST estate sale I've ever been to. The ladies were super nice, the prices were perfect and the stuff was pretty dang good. I could have probably gotten so much more if not for two things: I'm trying to be good and I didn't see it until it's third day. Dangit!
Only a few Christmas goodies were left by the time I got there. That tinsel garland will be used to make a few ornament wreaths. I'm tired of drooling over everyone else's, time to make my own! The Made in Japan stacking Salt and Pepper shakers are totally staying with me, but the rest will go to the booth during the Christmas season.
As I was looking in the basement, a tired lady looked at me and said, "I really don't want to carry all this junk out of here, everything is half off down here!" Well you don't have to tell me twice! These kids toys were all together in one bag. I didn't even realize how many tin plates there were until got home. Does anyone know anything about these? Only the little cup and matching saucer in the front are marked.
Haha...so the only reason I bought the puzzle is because it says "Adult" on the box, but when I looked a bit closer I noticed it was stamped "The Mill" on the front. Probably a mill, not a nudie picture. : /
The Better Homes and Gardens came home with me for the ads. Follow me on Instagram if you want to see some good ones as I come across them. They are so entertaining to look through! The wire basket, paper doilies and Colorful Colorado fan were fun finds too, though they don't yet have a clear future.
This is a bit out of the realm of what I normally buy, but the casters sold me on it, as well as the fact that it was only $1! I would have paid that for the empty coffee tin! What are those neat looking numbered nails used for?
Pyrex! Shut the front door! This was totally one of those, "Melissa, don't let them see you being weird" sales. The mustard color promo item hasn't even been opened and with a little elbow grease the Pressed Flowers looks brand spanking new! It came with a lid, but in a spazz moment I dropped it and watched it shatter into a billion pieces on my sun room floor. Can you imagine what was probably there during the first day of the sale?! Oh, it hurts to think about it!
And again, apparently that wasn't enough for me because after the sale I hit my little senior thrift store and scored these great linens. The yellow one has a big hole in it so it is destined for a craft project. The red flower one is perfect after a good soak, but I'm not quite sure of it's fate yet. I really like it! Same thing with the donkey motif table runner. It's pretty awesome!
The same little shop had these great day of the week kitty flour sack towels waiting for me. They were in really yucky shape, and came out just o.k after a good soak. They are probably destined for the booth so someone can cut them up for a cool sewing project. The Walt Disney souvenir plate is listed on Etsy and the California tin tray is soon to follow. The Whizzle sticks are one of my favorite finds from that day. They make me want to have a party just so I can use them!
And this big guy was watching me photograph my spoils all afternoon! He was probably happy to be relatively sheltered from the rain.
I love me some Queen! Linking up with The Colorado Lady and Junkin Joe.
