First Autumn Estate Sale

We shopped at only one estate sale this week. We had so many other things to do now that it is Autumn.

My absolute favorite find was this old chippy postal scale. It is labeled as a Hanson Model 1509 Postal Scale dated January 1, 1949. It still needs some cleaning but it has a lovely rustic charm.

I found these old post-bound ledgers. Wouldn't these make great vintage scrapbooks!

I enjoy old linens and found this sweet dish towel. The strawberries will go well with the vintage stawberry canisters that I found here.

And the last item I found was a matching yellow canister like the larger one I found here. Now this makes a nice set.

I am busy working on projects for Autumn as well as taking photos of my remodeled bathroom. I love how the season is changing and it is time to redecorate.
