A couple of weeks ago, I went to a sale given by a local auction house. Holy moly the prices were super high! I love these guys and Hanna and I had a blast attending one of their auctions last summer but I will most likely steer clear of their estate sales. Example? What I think was a Spring Blossom 402 bowl (so badly dishwashered it was hard to tell) for $14.
Needless to say, I left that sale defeated and empty handed. As I headed back toward home, I saw another sign for an estate sale. I hadn't seen any advertising for this one. It also started the day prior. Since I didn't have anything else to do, I figured it wouldn't hurt to see what was left.
I found this awesome pink laundry hamper in the backyard (?). It was filthy and I'm pretty sure wasn't ever used to hold actual laundry.
This unfinished apron is so dang cute! Just needs the ties. I think I should be able to handle that. Okay, probably not. But I bet I can talk my mother-in-law to doing it for me.
Some pretty linens. Loving the Jadeite color on the pillowcase.
Another pretty tablecloth. Do you all see the photobombing German Shepherd?
I picked up this old soldering kit just for the case. Obviously I am not going to be soldering anything.
There has got to be some sort of support group for jar addicts.
I found all of this pottery in the shed out back. Just goes to show that you should always check every room and building at an estate sale. I have found Pyrex in garages and outbuildings before!
Not bad for the second day of a sale plus it was all half off. I asked the people running the sale if it was advertised and they said no, they just put up signs because that was the way they had always advertised and it always worked for them. Well it worked out good for me too!

Have a great day & stay cool!
