Before we talk estate sales, I have to introduce my newest great niece, Sadie Marie; born to my niece Melissa and her hubby Brandon. Very appropriately, Sadie was born on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend, and is so lucky to have two big sisters (Molly and Grace) to look out for her.
My plan wasn't to go to estate sales this morning. Nothing sounded like a "must see" sale. But then, I got up, had my Diet Coke, watched the news on TV and thought about what I should do today.
Somehow, going to estate sales seemed to be the easiest choice to make. Washing the kitchen floor or dusting never really crossed my mind.
As it turned out, I was pretty happy with my time to miles to finds ratio. I was only gone for about 2 1/2 hours, and only drove about 20 miles, but I had to make two trips to carry everything inside.
Really liked this repousse rose picture frame. It's vintage but in great shape.
On the table right next to the frame was this sweet picture of a girl with a BIG bow in her hair, with her mother. I bought the "Nouvelle Bougie" box just because I liked the French label.
These nasty looking candles were inside the box.
A pretty book, gold frames and gold appetizer forks and a little Eiffel Tower. You really can't go wrong buying an Eiffel Tower for resale. I've never had one last more than a couple days.
German curtain clips- these are getting hard to find, but are so cute to use in crafts- or to hang your curtains.
I love red leather books and books with red and gold spines, so these were a no brainer.
Except, the books were all on different shelves in a book case. I was so happy to have gathered five together. I thought I saw a sixth book, but it turned out it was just a cover.
Duh, it was the cover to one of the books I bought. Rookie mistake!
So, that was Estate Sale Friday.
It's probably too late in the day now to think about housework, isn't it?
