The show was over by 2 p.m., and I played around in my head with the idea of going to some estate sales, and then remembered I had only slept about four hours, so the hubs and I grabbed lunch at Schlafly after dropping Holly off, then crashed at home, taking a four-hour nap and waking up around 8:30 p.m. (whoops!).
But it actually turned out well, because I got up early on Sunday, which means my sleeping schedule was still intact, and I headed to a couple estate sales before running some errands. Both were in South City off Hampton, and the first one turned up these little gems...
|Vintage patent black purse.|
|Some '60s appetizer forks.|
|Set of cut-glass appetizer plates that will be replacing a set of Anthropologie ones |
I got a few years ago.
|A handmade crochet poncho, for sale.|
|A vintage blue pencil skirt, vintage size 14, for sale.|
I realized when taking these pictures that Esmeralda is in the trailer, so until I remember to take things there over the weekend to photograph them, you're stuck looking at hanger pics. :)
The second sale was a bit more picked over, but I did walk out with two things...
|Another Flameware double boiler (yay!). This one is even bigger than I one I picked up some months ago.|
|And some silverplate salad tongs...|
|With a really pretty pattern pressed into it.|
Earlier last week, I did some post-work thrifting at Value Village and a Goodwill. I found lots of cute vintage linens to sell in the trailer, but unfortunately that's where they are, so no pictures. But I did still have some of the vintage baby clothes I've been picking up (all for sale, by the way).
|Love the red polka dots in this one.|
|A vintage Diane von Furstenberg girls dress (what??).|
|I tried to research it, but couldn't find anything about children's clothes made by|
her except the recent line she did for Gap. Anyone know anything about this one?
|Little romper set with yellow gingham.|
I also found these pillows...
And a new coffee table!
|A wonderfully '60s rattan one, with four triangle seats that pull out.|
|And the fabric is in gorgeous condition!|
All this means that our old coffee table set is for sale. It's a three-piece vintage Lane set, the Acclaim line, that we picked up last year.
|The stuff that looks like discoloration is actually dust....I'm not a good housekeeper (haha).|
It's in good condition, but has some minor wear on the edges and a glass ring on one end table (all from the previous owners), so we're pricing it as such, at $250. If you're in the area and you're interested, just shoot me an email! I'll be putting it on Craigslist later today.
What about you? Find any goodies this past week?
