I wish I would've taken some pictures of them with their finds before we parted ways, but I think there will be some repeat performances, so next time. Until then, here's what I was able to dig up. I had actually found time to go to an early sale on Friday where (if you can believe it) it was the first time I stood in line and got a number to go in (gasp!). I'm very familiar with the process, but can usually never bring myself to get there when the initial rush happens, because usually that's when all the (for lack of a better word) jerks show up and you have to wrangle things from their sticky fingers. But this sale was a small house and really packed, so they only let 15 people in to start, and then 1 for 1 once somebody left. It was quite nice, actually, not having a ton of people in the house at the same time, and I felt less pressure to scramble around quickly. The woman whose house it had been was a serious sewer, so I walked out with some amazing fabric and such...
A couple shots of some of my favorites...
The one below is several yards, and still in new condition. The lady at the estate sale said the name of the designer, and now I've completely forgotten. Anyone know?
Below is a patchwork quilt top that is all sewn together. Just needs some batting and a bottom layer. It's nice and big and has so much amazing fabrics in it. Can't wait to finish it and turn it into a bedspread!
They had put some stuff outside to make room, and I was crossing my fingers that no one would buy this before I got to go in and put my name on it. It has a little water damage, but I'm so love in with it for my craft room to store all kinds of things. I'll most likely repaint it, and then add a rod in the space above the cubbies to string my spools of ribbon.
Here's what I found on Saturday...
These Butterfly Gold Cinderella bowls were the hubs's spot. He was so proud, and so was I. :)
The hubs is also space nut, so when he was this ash tray from the moon landing, it had to be his.
