Estate sale listing descriptions can be very deceiving. For example, I read a description that said "Saturday only. Family run estate sale. Everything must go." Sounded great so we drove quite far and quite early to be at this sale. It appeared that the family had already taken everything and what was left were a few pieces of furniture. :(
The next sale was described as "Friday and Saturday. Lots of vintage items." Usually most things that I like are gone on the second day so my expectations were low. We were surprised to find lots of fun stuff (probably because their prices were high and there was no bargaining).
There are several items that are my favorite finds this week. Suitcases are always tops on my list and these are smaller than my other ones. These were from a garage sale where the owner said that they had once belonged to her grandmother.
I rarely find any old Halloween items so these are special. The seller had a lot more but he was asking a lot of money for each piece.
This doll suitcase isn't in perfect condition but it is so adorable and I love the pattern on the inside as well. It was filled with bits of doll clothing and lots of mis-matched doll shoes.
I don't usually pick up aprons but the fabric caught my eye and I fell in love with these.
I like finding board games and was fascinated when I found this cardboard version of Chinese Checkers. The copyright on the board is 1937.
We drove far and wide and had a lot of fun. Finding good treasures at estate sales is such a hit-or-miss adventure. There is just so much to discover.
Don't forget to check out my Stuff to Treasure Shop. I add new items regularly.
