Style Spots: Estates Sales in St. Louis

What? A Style Spots post?? I know, it's been forever since I've done one, mostly because I've been on a thrifting freeze for a while. And to have a blog that tries to focus on secondhand stuff...well, you can imagine how difficult it has been!

Yesterday the ice broke as I dragged the hubs to three different estate sales and, let me tell you, this is perhaps what I am looking most forward to about moving back to St. Louis. The prices here compared to California are ridiculously low, but what you can get is just as good. And if you go on Sundays, like we did, everything is 50% off. I ended up finding a great combination of stuff for my future new home and for my Etsy store, such as...

A vintage (and beautifully avocado green) train case...

Headed to Etsy

A quirky little embroidered frog pillow

Two beautiful brass candlesticks

Two rolls of vintage wallpaper (that I've been hoping to come across for a long time now)

Some more Pyrex appetizer plates in the Butterfly Gold pattern to add to the set I'm collecting

One of the books from the Blaze series that the hubs reading as a kid and is now collecting

A vintage General Electric hand mixer...

Headed to Etsy (Love the avocado color, yet again)

Set of six vintage cups & saucers

With a beautiful mustard pattern on the plate (also headed to Etsy)


Have you come across any great (& thrifted) finds lately?! I'd love to hear all about them!
