So I went to my first "wait in line with your name on the door estate sale". I typically just stumble on Estate Sales. I don't really seek them out unless they are local and convenient. I stumbled on one doing errands and waited in line. They even had baskets. There were some really jacked people and some really nice people too. It was obviously a company sale, so I knew it would be spendy, but it was an interesting experience. Everything was expensive and to fancy for my taste, but I did find some treasures in the rough.
This cracker tin was in the garage and had masking tape across the top. For 50 cents, I took it and took the skin off my fingers scrubbing the tape off! I'm weird, I like the thrill of uncovering the "gunk" off treasure.
I thought this 1961 political hankie was an interesting piece of history for $1
This 1948 children's book was in bad shape, but for 50 cents I'm using the graphics for projects.
I got this "Grow up Skipper from 1974 from a yard sale for 25 cents. The furniture was from the same sale. I've wanted to find this doll for my daughter's collection...I loved this thing! You twist it's arm and she grows up and, yes, grows boobs.
This little strainer/sifter was too cute to pass up at a local antique shop.
Here's my bread boxes and picnic basket stacked up for fun.
I love adding color to the kitchen! The more texture, pattern and color, the better!
My cute little grandma just finished these towels. She made the bowls look like Pyrex.
Major score with my husband at a Senior Center shop! The Pyrex Buffet Twins Promo from 1959 for $5.00. It is missing one (I bet I can find it!). It had the ugly duckling Pyrex pattern I can't even think of instead. Also, this cute napkin for .25
Happy Fun in the Sun!
