I finally went to an estate sale. It’s been a hot minute since I went to one, but I got an email that said everything was priced to sell so I figured I may as well check it out. This sometimes means that either I’m still so cheap or they are still so expensive that I walk out with next to nothing. But this email specifically stated that they were pricing stuff so that you could resell… so I figured why not? On Saturday, when I had planned on going, I got an email that said everything was half off, and they were bundling too. So I figured it was a safe bet.
Friday night I felt a cold coming on, but Saturday morning I was still in denial. Hubby went with me and I was in an out pretty quickly. Luckily everything I wanted in the photos was still there, thus proving that most of the things I like… no one else does! Sometimes it’s good to be the oddball!
My most favorite find was this milk glass vase, of which I owned 4 or 5 before giving them all away to move to FL. I can’t believe I didn’t keep even one, and when Hubby started bringing me flowers, I quickly realized I didn’t own a vase. I knew I’d find one.
This one was only a $1.
Some of the other notable finds were this mini cake stand, $2.50
This real painting: $5
This vintage handbag. In rough shape, but I plan to use it in vignettes for decorating. $1.50
And even though I have several, this corningware in my pattern was in such good shape for only $1!
I didn’t have the energy to stage these photographs, as Sunday rolled around I stayed on the couch. I have a long week of teaching ahead and I wanted to get as much rest as possible! I’ve been throwing all kinds of echinacea, and vitamin c at this cold!
I also stopped at a yard sale by my house on the way home from the estate sale and scored this makeup organizer for 50 cents:
Now on to rest up a bit before I have to suspend from silks with a head cold…. argh!
