A Very Busy Estate Sale Weekend

We had a lot of things to do this weekend so I was happy that I could squeeze in a couple of estate sales in the morning.

My favorite find was a display box filled with little vintage Christmas trees and chenille stick {pipe cleaner} Santa Claus ornaments. There were a lot of trees with Santas in this box.

We found this nice plaid Thermos brand carrying bag with a bottle and box. I'm not sure what the plastic box held but I found several extra cups inside.
I can always use more apothecary jars in various sizes.

I don't believe this is very old but I plan to do a display with this Bingo cage.

I seem to be collecting various glass insulators. I found these two odd sizes marked Hemingray and Brookfield. I love the teal colored glass.

And I have a project in mind using handmade lace doilies so I picked up more of these.
So besides catching a few estate sales in the morning we also attended a birthday party held at the Disney Grand Californian at Disneyland that evening AND watched my son practice competition driving at a race track in the hot California desert the following morning. It was a very fun but exhausting weekend.
