So phase one of the sale in Stevenson, Washington was a winner. The attic was supposed to be emptied and the second phase was to happen the following weekend. I waited and waited for the ad to come up online for the sale...I was on pins and needles hoping it would happen. The minute I saw it come online I knew where I was headed.
Amy and I left Portland and the ghastly hour of 6:30 a.m. We made it to the estate sale by about 7:45 and ended up being numbers 5 and 6 to enter. The sale started at 9. Amy and I discussed at length what treasures the attic could hold and we both were betting on some vintage Christmas as there had only been a small amount previously. As the clock ticked away these boxes that had been unloaded from the attic taunted us from the yard.
I was very lucky with a box of Christmas that I found.
Vintage Easter including some of those rubber eggs that are hard to find.
Vintage Halloween napkins. I have quite a few of these now. Old playing cards. I love the top row dog where he looks like he is laughing.
I saw this fairy gal in the online photos. There were two of them, but I was happy to snag one.
A risque Hula girl tie that will go to Etsy.
At one point I realized some of the boxes used to gather and store items for the sale were wonderful. I made a point of searching some out.
The cutest Christmas water decals and a ton of old jingle bells.
I bought a bag of these tiny Made in Denmark hats as they looked interesting. I thought they may have been party favors. Later I discovered they had a neat honeycomb feature.
Laundry bag More pipe cleaners and some great bump chenille. The neon pink is kind of fun.
I discovered the Kreiss Santa in a box the estate sale company had not gone through. He will head to Etsy or Ebay.
The little favor cups have the cutest rim detail.
