Estate sale season is slowly coming to an end around here. Sure, we will still have them now and again but not every weekend and nowhere near as many. I've done really good this summer. So good, that it's been hard to keep up with sharing with you guys on the blog. Here are some of my finds from the last few weeks...
I went to a sale at a house that I had previously been to a sale at. When I mentioned it to the homeowner, she said that it must have been the previous renters. What are the odds that both renters had garage sales with vintage stuff? I got this big 'ol jar that is just begging for a vintage decal and two Hazel Atlas creamers.
I picked up what appears to be an old locker basket with a handle from another sale. When the lady saw that I was buying it, she said "Oh do you like old baskets because I have so many more that I just know you will want!". I was super excited until she lead me to a pile of crushed and broken Dollar Store Easter baskets that she swore were from the 50's. I politely declined with the excuse that I already had some like them and was running out of room.
I saw these shakers in the ad for an estate sale about 30 minutes from my house. It started at 7 and I wasn't able to get there until about 9:30. Luckily they were still there!
I got the sweet Holt Howard angels from the same sale. There were so many HH collectibles, I felt like I was in a museum! But most of the prices were really, really high. I would have bought so much more if I could have afforded it. My plan was to go back on Saturday afternoon when they would start discounting things. They discounted alright.....on purchases totaling over $500! I am not kidding. That should give you a better idea of the pricing.
I got this sweet mug for a dollar because of the obvious chip in the front. But I couldn't leave it. Miss Smarty Pants Maddie figured out that the bird on the handle is a whistle. Hence the "Whistle for Milk" on the front. The smaller bird has a clamp on it so that you can attach it to something.
These Jadeite and Delphite Fire King mugs and bowls were front and center in another garage sale ad photo. They were still there when I showed up about an hour after opening. I am so lucky to have gotten to them before anybody else, especially since they were a dollar apiece!
Hope you guys don't get sick of seeing vintage linens because I find a lot of them! They are the only kind of sheets I use on my bed.
