Wow... time is really flying this week. How can it already be THURSDAY? YIKES. :-)
As I've said--- probably a hundred times or so by now--- I'm really behind on my posting... and these pictures are from a couple of months ago, but what the heck, I'm still going to share them...... 'cuz I'm like that.
My daughter thought this would be a grand estate sale, and whenever there's shopping for fun vintage finds, I'm in...... And, as they say, don't judge a "book" by it's cover.
That is one decrepit house, isn't it?
But, on the inside??
YOWZA!!! It was the home of an antique dealer........she'd given up her business many years before, but nearly EVERYTHING in that house was OLD! She had some wonderful things...... The only thing I saw that was new was the Samsung cherry RED washer and dryer that I've had my eye on for several years. It looked so out of place. :-)
One of the gentlemen, in charge of running the sale, told us that the ex-husband of this woman had gotten there before their estate sale company and had thrown tons of things into a dumpster he had had delivered. OH MY. The neighbor kept telling him he'd buy the stuff, but this ex just kept chucking the stuff in the the garbage. So, so sad. I have been known to do a bit of dumpster diving, but going to search through the dump? HECK NO. :-) Ewwwwwwwwww.
We didn't get there until about eleven and the sale started about eight, I think, so we didn't get the very best spoils, but we had a wonderful time and found some great things.
LOVED that bed. It was still there, but I don't have a spot for it. Did you know you can get mattresses custom made for odd sized beds?
I've wanted one of these little carts FOR.EVER, but unfortunately it was long gone. We did buy a LOT of potholders though. :-)
Whenever I antique/thrift/estate sale I rush home, fire up the washer and fill the sink with water and wash everything up so it's all pretty and nice. Yeah, well, that means I always forget to take pictures of what I find. Darn it all. And, half the time I don't even remember what I bought once everything's all nicely tucked away.
This picture reminds me of Texas.........not that I've ever BEEN to Texas, but the first thing I thought when I saw it was "Fredricksburg".... LOVE it....
Tons of wirework... I got one little piece, not shown in this photo.. I've never thought of collecting it, but it does look cute, doesn't it?
I'm just going to have to start taking the pictures when I get home so I can share my "finds" with you, even if they aren't all sparkly yet.
It's going to be sunny here today.......WHOOOPPPEEEE..... and I'm going to take a jewelry class with my daughter. I will remember to take pictures this time... :-) I've wanted to make this bracelet forever and haven't found a class before so I'm really excited. It's a birthday present to myself. ;-)
Huggies and Lovies too!
