Hope you all had a fun weekend. We are on about our 14th day in a row of mid 60 degree weather and clear, blue skies. We normally don't get rain here until November but we also never get this many consistent days of sunny weather. I'm not complaining because there are still lots of sales going on. People are definitely taking advantage of the dry weather which is a win for me!
On Friday, I only went to two sales. The first one was an estate sale but the house was about 90% empty and at first glance it looked like the family had gotten ahold of all the good stuff. But I was able to dig out a few treasures.
I was just saying the other day how I rarely find any vintage Halloween at the sales or thrifts. This sale had two tables full of holiday decorations but most of it was pretty new. I found a single shoebox with these honeycombs and Gurley candles mixed in with some newer stuff. They were really out of place with all of the new stuff.
These items were the only vintage Christmas that there was. The little angle has a broken wing but I am going to use her on an ornament wreath so I will be able to cover it up. I got all of the Halloween & Christmas stuff for a dollar!
I always check out the garage area at estate sales. You never know what some people will use to store things in! These canisters were in pretty bad shape but for $1.50, it was worth a shot to try and clean them up.
Plus they were full of nails and I figured Brian could always use more nails!
A little elbow grease and a Mr. Clean Sponge and they are good as new! Pretty, huh? I only wish that the fourth one in the set didn't have a big ol' crack down the front. I had to leave it behind.
After I paid, I was walking out and noticed a door in the kitchen that was shut. When I asked the guy if there was anything in there, he said that it was the walk in pantry and was full of kitchen stuff. He had forgotten to open it!
There was lots of aluminum bakeware and this single Pyrex Snowflake divided dish for a dollar! I mostly just bought it for the divided lid. When I went back up to pay, I noticed these cuties sitting on a window sill
Yay! Another set of donkey shakers for my collection. Aren't they silly? I'm not sure how in the world I overlooked these, especially with the lack of stuff in the house. It's a good thing I noticed
that closed pantry door!
I wasn't planning on going to the next sale until Saturday. The Craigslist ad and the ad in the paper said it didn't start until then so imagine my surprise when on my way to Home Goods, I drove by the sign for the sale. I got there about 15 minutes before the start time and was #16 in line. Normally, I would have been # 50+ getting there at that time.
Pink & turquoise vintage sheets & pillowcases!! These are by far my most favorite ones I've found.
Since I already have the complete Butterprint Cinderella bowl set plus a backup, I obviously didn't need this #442. But this is the same estate sale company that I got my 3 pink bowls at for ten bucks and they price their Pyrex really low so for $2, this had to come home with me. I love this pink tray. It is perfect for my shabby bedroom.
I still don't know how to sew but that doesn't stop me from buying pretty vintage fabric. In the middle is a table runner made from a vintage tablecloth. I love the yellow & purple colors on it!
How pretty is the pile of mercury glass garland? I found it on my way out to pay. I just don't understand how something like this gets overlooked!
Not a lot of ornaments but enough to make me happy!
This little tin is about the size of a sand dollar and was in the free box.
I only wanted this galvanized bucket and not the horseshoes but they wouldn't split them up.
I see a horseshoe pit project in Brian's future.
Only two sales but enough good junk to make me happy! Hope you all had some good treasure hunting luck over the weekend too!
