I've noticed, now that we're almost into summer, that a lot of estate sales are happening Fridays and Saturdays instead of Saturdays and Sundays (and some still go all three days). I hardly ever go to the Friday ones because I'm never off work in time, but there were a couple this past weekend that started at noon or 1 p.m. and went until 6 p.m. or 7 p.m. So once the clock hit 5:30 p.m., I dashed out the door to try and make it.
The first was a church rummage sale in the city, and it's another one of my favorites. They have it several times a year and always have good stuff at great prices. The second was a packed estate sale in Affton, and even though it was the first day, the prices were extremely reasonable. By the time I got downstairs I was searching for a box to put all my goodies in, and I went home with some great finds. Want to see?
|A lovely burnt orange Hawaiian maxi dress, for sale.|
|A black metal plant stand that will be getting a new color.|
|Remember when I found that crane on the left? Well I found it again, this time with its mate.|
|A really lovely telephone stand (complete with pen/pencil holder in the upper left corner).|
And no, it didn't come from Urban Outfitters.
|A cute little handmade Teddy bear with a felt heart.|
|A vintage handmade dress with a pretty lace design on it. It fits me really well, so I think it|
will be the subject of my first outfit post?
|A beautiful vintage Dessy maxi dress, for sale. Would be great for a bridesmaid! Love the lace collar.|
|A set of four mod mugs, for sale.|
|A set of retro candle holders with walnut on top and gold/metal stands, for sale.|
|Two rolls of really wide vintage velvet ribbon, for sale.|
And, because I always do this, I saved my favorite find for last:
|A beautiful, pristine Sears/Kenmore blender, complete with the glass upper|
and shiny chrome on the bottom.
|And the label matches the teal in my kitchen perfectly, so it was meant to be.|
Smoothies will never be the same. :)
I also just remembered I neglected to photograph a vintage Pyrex glass baking dish, and two outdoor candles for the back porch. So just picture those in your mind, too. :)
Now it's your turn! Did you find any goodies this weekend?
