A Little French and Hawaiian Spring Fever Sale

With this being the Easter holiday weekend, there weren't a lot of garage sales to choose from. We planned on going to only one estate sale. It was the third day of the sale so it had been pretty much picked over. We did manage to find a few treasures.

My favorite find was this group of Anysetiers Du Roy French Provence spice jars. They are probably from the 60s or 70s. They are still manufactured today but the newer ones have printed words, UPC codes and hang tags instead of the paper and wax seals on these older crockery jars. I love the mellow color of the crockery and the hand-written French words.

We also found a vintage Hawaiian board game that was made in Hawai'i. The box just looked so retro.
I also found more buttons and this scrimshaw bead with a picture of a baby seal carved on it.
We were done with this sale quite early and the day was so beautiful that one of our errands was to get new plants for the garden. We discovered an independent nursery nearby and I just had to share this photo of the colors of Spring.
I hope everyone had a nice day of thrifting. Happy Easter!

  4. It's hard to believe that those treasures were STILL there by the third day! Guess they were meant to be yours, Lynda. ;)
