There were at least a couple of estate sales every weekend in February, and four this past weekend. I've not found a lot, but thought I'd best share a few things since that's what this blog is all about!
Last weekend we went to one of the oddest sales we've ever attended. There was no sign in the yard or on the house, but people were going in and so did I. The sale was apparently conducted by the family, as they were in the kitchen making signs to put outside. At 1 PM. The sale started at 9 AM. There was a strange mix of items and hardly anything was priced. Lots of smalls had been thrown together in big boxes with no rhyme or reason, and though I bravely dug through the mess in search of treasure, there was none to be found. As I was about to leave empty handed, I spotted a plastic bag of buttons. Many looked newer but if the price was right, I was willing to take a chance. $3. Sold! In addition to about twenty cards of pretty high-quality 1960s-1980s buttons on cards, there were all of these lovelies. Click on any of the photos for a better view.
Etsy shop, along with a few other nice things from the same sale.
After recently trashing our two local thrift stores because they never seem to have anything but "new junk," I found the doily above and these two pieces. The little McCoy pot and the Oven Serve dish are both cracked so they'll be staying with me, but at around a dollar each, cracks don't bother me. They'll still hold buttons or pencils and look lovely doing it.
Thanks for reading!
