Susan asked me if I wanted to go to an estate sale with her last Saturday. I haven’t been to one in years. I was a little nervous knowing how excited I get with thrifting these days, but the prices pretty much held me back.
With prices being a tad more at the first day of an estate sale vs. Thrift Shops, I had to settle myself down right away. The ad in the paper described this Chippendale desk which I would have LOVED, but at around $900, I passed. It was probably worth that much however. It was gorgeous.
Of course there were sets of china…
A Full set of brown transferware…with every serving piece made!
I was able to pass since I already have brown transferware.
Loving silver, these cups really appealed to me. I thought they were quite unusual. With the dog base, they would have been so cute in my Hunt Club family room. I considered coming back the last day of the sale to see if they were still there and marked down, but I didn’t return. Seeing them again, I wish I had. :(
Shown below were my only two purchases at this Estate Sale, a linen table cloth and some sweet little napkins that will look cute in an upcoming tablescape.
We moved on to a second estate sale. This one was in an old home. I found this little bunny, pulling a cart. It seems quite old. The little frog will look cute in a potted plant this summer. I found two pampered chef pie pans with some little scoops, and this sweet little glass to go on my guest’s nightside table. My oldest grandson is learning to read so I couldn’t pass up the reading cards for a quarter or so. Perfect to keep him quiet in church. ;)
My mother loves cobalt blue, so these bowls will go with her Mother’s Day present. Custard cups for my daughters and more embroidered napkins.
We then moved on to a couple of thrift stores where I found this silver plated hand mirror.
The next store had this beautiful brown footed stemware (Look at that price!) and a milk glass vase.
Back at the Goodwill I found a set of six twig placemats for $3.00. I think they have possibilities.
At another thrift store this set of OLD mixing bowls was $2.00!! My daughter said she can always use another mixing bowl.
Not pictured, but made my grandsons super excited was a huge bag of Star War figures for $1.50! Angie told me that brand new those figurines went for around $7.00 a piece! She thought I got a great bargain.
Last of all was a set of eleven silver (of some sort…they are slightly tarnished) chargers for $2.00~ I think I got a fabulous price on these! Hey, since there were only eleven, I must keep thrifting to see if I can find a twelve one!
