Happy Last Day of Summer!
Friday, I headed to the one and only sale that looked good for the whole weekend. As I was following my GPS route, I started to realize that I had traveled down these same streets and taken these same turns a couple of weeks ago. As I came to my destination, I found that I had gone to a sale at this very same address a couple of weeks ago. I had pretty good luck the first time so I wondered if they were just trying to sell what was left or if they had brought more stuff in from somewhere else.
The super nice ladies running the sale informed me that there had been a storage unit that wasn't included in the first sale because the family hadn't gone through it yet. Once they did, they hauled what they decided not to keep back to the house to have another sale.
Here is what I found at the original sale...
I cleaned out the linen closet of all the vintage pillow cases!
I also found some awesome vintage towels in some great prints and colors.
And another pink bedspread exactly like the one I found a few months ago. The only difference? I paid $3 for the first one and a whole buck for this one!
Although I didn't need these Pyrex tea and coffee pots, they were complete and only 2 bucks each. I figure someone will want them!
I picked up these nut cups and silver sprinkles for my cake decorating collection. I have got to do a separate post of that shelf for those of you who aren't on Instagram. It's so cute!
I loved the colors and design on these Deka cups. Any idea of the age?
I keep talking about making a thermos into a lamp like Pam over at House of Hawthornes. Now I don't have an excuse not to. Can you believe I found a thermos and a lamp shade for it at the same sale?
So for the second part of the sale, they had everything in boxes out in the garage. The house was closed up this time. There was really no rhyme or reason to the boxes so if you didn't want to miss anything, you had to dig through every, single one. Laurie, this would have been a fun sale for you!
This match box holder has seen better days but I collect them so obviously had to buy it. Old Christmas tins are one of my newer Christmas collections. I may or may not have this one but I wasn't taking a chance.
I love how this old milk jar still has the original lid on it.
I picked up this old sewing box thinking Maddie could use it to store some of her crafting supplies.
It was chock full of some great old sewing notions. Anybody know what that pink thing is on top?
This cookbook is a duplicate for me so I will be selling it in my Instagram shop.
These old seed catalogs are awesome!! They have some amazingly colorful graphics that are perfect for framing.
There was no price on the red tin or pink Melmac serving piece so the nice lady said "Oh, that must mean they are free!". So she gave them to me. How nice was that?
I can never seem to pass up these metal molds and tart tins even though I have yet to find a use for them. I know there are probably a million ideas on Pinterest. I just need to find the time and motivation!
When I can hit a sale or two like these, it makes me sad that the season is coming to an end. But I think this is a pretty good send off!
Heading over to Sir Thrift-A-Lots for Thriftasaurus.
Have a great week!
