Happy Monday, Everyone!
I made it back from my long weekend in San Francisco. Brian and I were trying to uphold our self-proclaimed title of Parents of the Year by taking Alex and two of his best friends to see Justin Timberlake & Jay Z at Candlestick Park. 18 total hours in a car with three teenage boys? I think I deserve the title just for that!
Before we left, I was able to hit one pretty good estate sale that started on Wednesday night. Weird, huh? But it was given by a reputable company so I figured that I didn't have anything to lose. Plus, I knew I wasn't going to get in any thrifting while in San Fran so I needed to try and get some sort of fix before leaving town. I wasn't disappointed.
They had us go through the garage to enter the house so on my way to the kitchen, I grabbed this Squirt crate. It's my first Squirt one. The Pyrex Pixies were my only Pyrex buy. There was a whole set of Homestead Cinderella bowls for $5 bucks but I hate Homestead and wouldn't feel right about trying to pawn them off on someone else. Maddie just had to have the Golden book. Can you guess why?
I never set out to collect Thermos' but how in the world do you expect me to walk away from such great graphics? And I can't ever have enough donkeys, especially pink ones! The Hazel Atlas shot glass is the first souvenir shot glass I have found. Uh oh....another collection may be brewing.
One of the cashiers is the sweetest little old man. I believe he is the father of the owner of the estate sale company. He was so concerned about getting paper to wrap these deer in. He told me that his wife had them years ago and he remembered that the antlers could snap off pretty easily.
The Lefton bell girl is missing her bell thingie so I need to try and fix that. The Japan Santa will be right at home with all of his Santa friends at Christmas. The bulbs now bring my total to three which I believe means a collection :-)
So not a bad little haul for a random Wednesday evening estate sale. I even managed to get it all put away before I left town!

Have a great week!
