The first estate sale was expensive and had nothing that I wanted or could afford. The best part was that while we were standing in line we started talking with a woman who wants to hire me to design her logo. A nice perk for standing in line and meeting people.
I dropped off Dear Handyman to work and went on to the next sale. This is where I not only found some good treasures but also got everything at a really great price.
My favorite find was a bag full of vintage plastic reindeer. They need to be cleaned up a bit because they have a little glitter on them.
So happy to find some old buttons and these old cupcake tins. I like these tins because they are so ornate and they are steel so magnets will stick. These make great altered art pieces.
I found several more old rulers. My two favorites were the wooden architect's ruler and the blue folding yardstick.
I also found these three little items. The magnifying glass is only 5" long and will make a nice altered art piece. The screwdriver has a unique wooden handle. And I think the yellow bird thing is a plant watering device but I'm not sure. It was just something that might end up in a Springtime project.
I hope everyone had a great day of thrifting. I'm off to finish some art projects in preparation for the Designers Craft Connection Blog Hop on Monday. Please check back to see what I create with some old vintage school supplies.
