My dear father-in-law and I were on our way to do some grocery shopping about 3:ooPM. Yes, most of the time he helps with this chore. Actually I enjoy going shopping with him. On our way we spotted a sign that read "Estate Sale." My car STOPPED and would go no further unless we turned in the drive-way and checked out the sale. I have a smart car!
It was an experience. The place had stuff all over, the carport was full of tables and boxes. There were 2 sheds with stuff and then the small 2-bedroom house. I was going through the house and came to a bedroom with a man was blocking the door. There was a lady rifling through everything the drawers, closet and boxes. I politely asked the man if I could get by. The lady said she was in there and I could come in when she was finished... WOW. That sure caught me by surprise. I just went on to the next room and came back to the bedroom later. Check out what we found!
We will be putting a lot of these items in our new antique mall spot.
It was late in the day and much of the stuff was picked over.
We still came a way with a few treasures.There is a cute story behind the cat salt & pepper shakers. I found one cat in the car port in a box and the other in a shed behind the house. I think if they are cleaned up they will be going to a good new home in the future.
Lots of wooden bobbins of thread!
A couple of pieces of silver!
My mother had star candle holders like those when I was small.
I picked up all the heart jewelry I could find.
All in all I think we had a good day.
What do you think of our finds?
