I was waiting in line at an estate sale early Friday morning. I had taken a book with me since I was about 30 minutes early and knew this particular estate sale company never opens the sale early. Directly in line in front of me was an older couple. Late 60s/early 70s. While we're waiting, the gentlemen tells his wife that he'd like to read the news - she reaches into her large bag and instead of pulling out the newspaper, which is what I expected, she pulls out an iPad and hands it over. I look at the gentleman and tell him that I feel old fashioned! He waggles a finger at me and exclaims, "Nothing can ever replace a good book, young lady!" As if he had to tell ME! I'm the one reading a book that I checked out from the library! We had a good laugh and started chatting. I really love the characters I meet at estate sales =)
The sale turned out to be a good one! Here are some picks from Friday and earlier in the week. Larger Butterprint fridgie! *swoon* This is only my second piece of Butterprint. (The first one was a gift from my hetero life partner, Jay) I can't wait to add more to my collection.
I picked up this small Terra casserole at the same sale. I love black Pyrex. Snowflakes? Circles? Gimme!
I found this great vintage beaded clutch too. My boyfriend told me that it's "hideous" but I dig it. It's loud and it's proud!
I picked up this Kodak Instant Camera Tote earlier in the week. I decided to list it, but it was a hard decision! It's a perfect size for a purse and it oozes retro cool.
Fire King dessert bowls! I have no idea why there were three yellows and just one blue - but I kinda like it. Even tho the temp here has been in the 80s all week - these bowls got me in the mood for spring.
I'm going to finish up with a little project I worked on this weekend. I picked up a set of vintage stoppered spice jars with the intent to list them as a set. I got the gardening bug this weekend tho and turned five of them into terrariums.
I love how they turned out. They're only four inches tall, but they make a great vessel for a little mini garden.
I'm going to list a few of these in my shop and see how they do. I was very successful with the vintage thimble garden I listed last week so I have high hopes =)
I hope everyone was as successful! I'm off to check the Thrift Share Monday posts now and see how everyone made out this weekend!
