I took along a friend to this sale who had never been to an estate sale before and she was such a trooper. We waited outside for an hour and she got to experience the full affect, from the socializing with everyone, to the peeking in the windows. The sale opened a little early, I turned to her and said, "See you later!" and I was off.
I had noticed some Christmas in the first room and headed straight there. I got about half of the goodies that I wanted but I was just so happy to finally find some holiday goodness.
Next I ran off to the bedrooms that were jam packed with people and goodies. One room had piles of vintage jewelery. I knew I didn't have a chance and was much more interested in kitchenware, so I grabbed this beauty and headed out of the chaos.
At this point my hands were full and I decided I would have to drop a load off before running back inside. In all the excitement I realized I had broke my #1 rule and did not go to the kitchen first. I was really excited about what I found so I forgave myself and struggled my way back in for round two.
When I finally got to the kitchen the sale had been going for a good 10 minutes. With the number of people and that being said, I could not believe my eyes.
This was my blind buy of the sale. I bought this huge box of cards for a pretty great price. I had no idea what was in the box, but figured I would take the risk.
At this point I went to drop off another load and found my friend. She looked like a kid in a candy shop and her hands were full of vintage jewelery. I'm pretty sure I created a monster. I went back in and managed to get a few items myself.
I'm hoping to figure out how to turn all the earrings from clip-ons to posts. The jewelery box is in great shape on the inside and I think will be my very first decoupage project this summer.
It was great to finally go to a sale worth my time. I think I may still have a little rush from it all. I'm off tomorrow morning to another, so send me some good luck please!
