Well, we're going to do that again...but please, keep your anticipiation to a reasonable level. Even though I went to four sales, everything I bought fits in one Longhorn Steakhouse biodegradable plastic bag- with room leftover for a doggy bag of KC strip if I could have found it.
Here's what I got:
A vintage "automatic" address book. Slide the lever to the right letter, press down, and like magic, the address book opens to the correct page.
This is a little more interesting- glittery, party, "take me dancing" shoes with a Hartzfield Department Store label. You know that next to original boxes, one of the things I most like to find at estate sales is anything with a label or price tag from a long ago local store.
Doesn't matter, I needed a place to put my party shoes, and it's perfect for that.
>Old dress patterns. I have no good reason for buying them other than they were only a quarter a piece and they reminded me of a time when you'd put on your hat and gloves before heading out to Hartzfield's Dept store.
(I didn't even put socks on to go out this morning.) Cute flashcards with pictures. M is for Moon and X is for Xylophone.
Good reason for buying jewelry....not.
So, that's this week's edition of Estate Sale Friday. It's probably not going to be the most highly rated show, but sometimes you've just got to take what you get and remember, there's always next Friday.
(Unless it's Thanksgiving week...)
