Friday Estate Sale!
& I could actually go!
I don't know what they do in your neck of the woods, but around here
the estate sales are always Friday & Saturday.
I miss the first day with all the choice items because I'm at work.
(On the flip side, everything is half price the second day, Saturday.)
I was lucky to be off work today and got to the estate sale when it opened.
I stopped to look at a some cute knick knacks, when my husband
came back into the room calling my name excitedly to come.
I followed him to the back room and saw two large tables piled high with linens!
I'm sorry I didn't get a photo, but the women were on that table like a dog on
a bone, so I had to start digging through myself.
Here I scored 2 aprons, 2 hankies and and 3 towels.
A nice bright Simtex-Stevens in great shape.
Three pretty Christmas tablecloths, which I will be very
thankful I bought when November rolls around.
How cute is this little Santa guy,
which is really 6 dish towels. So vintage!
Lots of lovely embroidered pieces.
Did I mention lots of embroidered pieces?
I can't resist them. So pretty...and I'm enthralled with the patience
and time that went into stitching these beauties.
These are all pillowcases. I love the feel of a good
quality pillowcase, and these are so soft and wonderful.
The "His" & "Hers" sets make me smile. Actually, maybe not a bad idea,
because I think after Mr. Retro smashes his pillow flat, he steals mine!
After a good washing these are going on the bed so I can catch him in the act.
I'll end this with a few close-ups of the embroidered pieces.
Did I mention all the linens were $1.00 each?
Oh, except the hankies, pillowcases and aprons,
which were 2 for a dollar.
I did go back for a few of those knick-knacks, which I'll show in
a later post. Thanks for dropping in.
