It was a good weekend in estate sale land. I hit two sales yesterday and two today. I am breaking this post into two. Here are the finds from the first three sales I hit.
A big beveled round mirror and a plastic ornate frame. I like to spray paint the frames and use them to display vintage crepe paper. I hit the garage at one sale and scored some old coffee tins. I dumped out the nails and screws (into another container) and then asked the fellow how much the tins were. He gave them to me for free. That always makes me happy!
A bunch of boxes of these Merry Christmas cake decorations..perfect for holiday crafting! I also found some satin covered thread balls in green. Good timing for St. Patty's day!
Playing cards with shells for crafting summer mermaids, ribbon spools and a turquoise jewelery box.
Love the basket weave look on this old Dixie Plug tin.
I bought two boxes of Christmas ornaments. I am trying to only buy smaller ornaments this year, but the chartreuse green color is one I don't see often. A valentine hankie.
An old morning glory motif jar with lid and some plastic light switch plates.
Pretty good finds for three sales. After hitting the one sale this morning, I intended to head across town to a second one. Then I ran into a friend who told me about a sale with tons of vintage craft stuff. It was on my radar for Friday, but it was an hour drive and I wasn't sure about the TYPE of craft stuff. After hearing my friend tell me I must hit it, I took a chance and decided a plan B was in order. It was the second day, but I was crossing my fingers.
This is my loot from plan B.
