I usually find a treasure or two to bring home, but even if I don't,
estate sales are so unique. I find it very interesting to wander
around the house and peek into that person's life through their
possessions. It also saddens me to know someone has passed
away or had to give up their home due to health or other reasons,
but such is life.......for all of us.
On the other hand, it makes me happy to believe that
if we buy something, we are giving their special or
everyday possession another go-around.
I think that would make the person smile.
on to the Estate Sale.........
Vintage Made in Japan honeycomb turkey centerpiece, a 2nd day find
so he was 75 cents. How did I miss him the first day?
Vintage threads and thread box with "Tidee Maids Thread Box" on the lid.
Who can resist vintage buttons, especially when they're black and glittery.
Couldn't resist the shamrock pin either.
Remember those cotton gloves your Mom or Grandmother wore to church?
Well, mine wore boring white, no cool green!
Christmas runners. The elves runner is untagged, made of Jute.
Likely made in Sweden.
The sweet angel runner is also made of Jute, tagged
Walterscheid, Made in West Germany.
Pashmina type scarf, nice doilies for a dollar each, and check out those pink gloves!
What am I going to do with the 2 pairs of 60 year old cotton gloves?
I have no idea!
Maybe I'll wear them when I walk Doyle since it's not too cold yet.
Give the neighbors something to talk about, LOL!
Ah, some mid-century mod!
Ernest Sohn Creations ~ enamel on copper. $3 for the set, what???
Tis the season to find Christmas. Love these vintage napkin rings.
Labels still inside, Made in Hong Kong by REED. Just a dollar.
A holiday vintage apron, and a newer embellished one also.
Love ephemera, so picked up a few of these Christmas Carol booklets.
Probably the "Piece de resistance", (is that how you spell it?)
a very vintage squirrel cookie jar, by Brush!!!
Can you believe $3.00??? He is so stinkin' cute!
His head (the lid) is damaged, but I bought him to sit atop
kitchen cabinets, and you can't see the damage.
I know I've kept you too long, but this is too funny not to share.
As we shopped and gathered, they took our goods to package up and made piles
by the check out desk. There was already a shopper named "Pam" who had started
a pile, so they used "Pam Marie" for me. It wasn't until I got home
that I found a stack of calendar towels with cat decor that I hadn't chosen, but
certainly paid for! Guess that first "Pam" was disappointed when she got home
and couldn't find her cat towels! Most aren't even vintage, but newer.
Lucky for me they were cheap.
Well, that's it for today. Have a good week!
Did you find anything fun this past week-end?
