We are in the last full week of Summer vacation here. School clothes and supplies have been purchased and the kids have both been registered. I can't believe how fast Summer went by! I don't know about you, but when I was younger, time seemed to move a lot slower.
Between cleaning the garage and starting the redecorating process of Maddie's room (goodbye shabby chic, hello vintage cowgirl), I was able to hit two sales relatively close to my house. One was an advertised estate sale and one I just so happened to stop at because the little old lady that lives there has lived there for the past 40 years so I figured she had to have some great stuff.
The estate sale was actually a moving sale given by a young family relocating to California. They were about my age and although they had nice stuff, it wasn't old enough for my taste. However, the garage had a bunch of "old stuff" that had belonged to the husband's grandmother. She had passed away a few years ago and they had been storing the remaining items that the family didn't want. You can guess where I headed after hearing that!
The best part about this sale was that the newer stuff was priced way higher than the old stuff. I guess they just assumed that the old stuff wasn't worth anything. The Ball jar and cocktail shaker were 75 cents apiece.
The Fire King Tulip bowl is the 7" size. I now have three in the set. I have seen where there are 4 bowls and 5. Does anybody know exactly how many are in the full set. Oh, and the price on this? 2 bucks.
I am not sure what I am going to do with this fabric but it was too pretty to leave behind.
These cute embroidered pillowcases are currently soaking in my laundry room sink. I can't wait to use them!
So that was it for that sale. I expected there to be a lot more vintage stuff but mostly all that was left after I picked through it was Tupperware, clothing, and pill separators. Definitely not my thing.
Then it was on to the next sale.
Quarter apiece Swanky Swigs! I had been on a swig dry spell lately but with my Plucky finds and this score, I'd say the dry spell is over!
How pretty are the turquoise, red, and yellow colors in this tablecloth? I'd say it's the perfect combination.
When I first got to the sale, a lady was asking if there were any more of these clam shell chairs in the back yard. When she was told that there was only one, she decided she didn't want this chair because she wanted a pair. Crazy lady! Buy this one and them someday you will find another one then you will have a pair! As soon as she was out of arms reach, I grabbed it. I didn't want to seem too eager..HA!
The Pyrex loaf pan and two 502 refrigerator dishes aren't patterns I collect but would you leave them behind for $1.25 for all three? I didn't think so.
Hopefully I can hit up some sales before we leave town on Friday. Brian and I are taking the kids up to Portland to see Taylor Swift. Upholding this Parents of the Year title is hard work!
As many of you know, today is Hanna's Golden Birthday! 27 on the 27th!
By the way....that would totally be Hanna hovering with the ice cream before the cake is even ready.
