Don't Judge a Sale by its Description

In my search for interesting sales this weekend, I overlooked a sale that was advertised as "Plants Yard Decoration". I wasn't interested in those items so I didn't look at the photos. It wasn't until I ran a search using keywords on Craigslist that I found a much more intriguing list of items at this sale.

The moral of this lesson is that it is always a good idea to check out the listing of all sales that are in your area and within the timeframe of your day.

My favorite find were these vintage Christmas pieces. I love the Empire Plastic Santa but the oddly shaped Mercury glass ornaments in the front are interesting as well. I have never seen this shape before.
We don't usually buy purses at estate sales but this one was in such good condition and unique. It is made from strips of metal in a basket weave pattern. 
I thought this copper enamel bowl was such a unique shape and I liked the bright sunflower design. It is made by Bovano from the 1960s.
Found a Fenton Hobnail turquoise blue small vase. So petite and pretty.
I like these accordion style sewing boxes. This one is in such great condition and it has these rounded knobs on top that look so 50s. Wouldn't it be fun to fill it with all kinds of Tim Holtz's inks and embellishments to have handy for crafting? 
I hope everyone has a great weekend of thrifting. Check out my Stuff to Treasure store for many of these and other treasured finds.
