I decided since I have made some sales on Etsy, thank you to everyone that has bought from me, that I would reward myself and go to an estate sale on Friday morning. Estate sales are my favorite and I thought that this one was being run by the family based on the ad. I am so glad that I did. I was early and figured I would sign in if need be and wait and read a magazine. Well when I pulled up I saw people already going in. Nothing was priced and that is usually a bad thing. Not here. They had fabulous prices and awesome stuff. On my first run through I bought:
I got everything here for $30.00 The basket in the back is full of linens, mostly large tablecloths. I will have to show them off on a future post. The two tins are full of hankies, most of which had never been used and still have the tags on them.
There were 64 hankies in the two tins. My favorite are the ones with the roses.
I also got a little tin filled with buttons and misc. sewing supplies.
Then after paying for that I went back in a found this.
It was in rough shape but it is sturdy and for $2.00 it is just what I needed.
I have already given it a little makeover and I love it.
Then I went back in after lugging everything to the car. On round three I found:
I loooove this!!!! I have already switched it out with another lamp shade in my living room.
ALL OF IT was $5.00!!!!
Then I went into the basement, they thought it was empty(I found that out after the fact), when I did I noticed the curtains(the basement was finished). So I went to ask about them….$3.00
There are six panels this size!
If that was not enough I found a pile of vintage cards and pictures that were being thrown away! They were on the top and it was all just clean garbage sooooo, yea I got those too!!
So what do you prefer yard sales or estate sales?
