Since Hanna surprised me (and probably lots of you too) by posting a blog on Friday, I am a little bit behind on sharing my recent estate sale finds with you. There isn't too much to share so I think I can get it all into one post.
Things are definitely picking up around here. I'm at the point where I am really having to be strategic in planning my route so that I don't miss out on what I think may be a good sale. A lot of times, I will bypass the ones given by the big companies to hit ones that are given by homeowners and families. I know that most of the time, 95% of the resellers and collectors in my area will be at the company sales. It's the best way for me to get the good stuff! There is some serious competition out there.
I paid 10 cents apiece for these Gurley Candles. That's also the original price on the tags!
Cute and kitchy kneehugger with his Made in Japan tag still attached.
10 cents for this too! I love the graphics.
This is the cutest little jar ever! Can you believe they gave sample sizes in packaging like this? Plus the bottom is marked HA for Hazel Atlas so I had to have it for sure!
More glassware for my stash.
I have two of these Japan marked bowls in aqua and this lime green one looks really cute in the stack. Although I'm not normally drawn to the green pottery, the 50 cent price tag sucked me in.
I seriously never thought I would find one of these clotheslines in person. I actually had to have one of the workers at the sale detach it from the utility room wall. After finding out that it was in fact for sale and not part of the house, they sold it to me for a dollar!
I stopped at another sale on the way home and picked up this laundry hanger thingie. Not sure how old it is but its pink!
I also found another mug rack to paint.
And this set of tin coasters. I think I'm gonna hang them on my wall along with my metal trays.
I only made it to one garage sale this last Friday but I found a couple good things
These are older Fiesta dishes (I think). They are pretty shallow so I am going to use them as cute cat dishes!
This cake carrier is the only other thing I found at the garage sale but it made me super happy! I have quite the collection of them going. Luckily, I can display them on top of my kitchen cabinets.
Hope you all have a great week!
Linking up with Sir Thrift-A-Lot for Thriftasaurus
Until next time...
