I DID end up going back to the estate sale that I had some luck at this past Friday. I would have blogged about it sooner, but I was without my laptop, and trying to post from my Nook is for the birds!
The first thing I grabbed were these patches for a project that I am going to get started on soon. If anyone knows what these mean, please let me know!
Then I bee lined to the kitchen to see if the corningware was still there. Yup, sure was! I ended up grabbing this large one that I had never seen before for $6, and the saucepan size that was only $1.
I also got some trinkets like this dish for holding jewelry, and a key for another future project. I also grabbed those flour sack material kitchen towels to embroider. I LOVE to embroider but I only know a few stitches, so I just do my own thang!
I got some boring trivets, and this cute change purse, and these quirky breakfast cloth napkins. I think they would be great for displaying muffins, or rolls in a basket for a brunch!
And I bought more “trash.” Most people would think it is anyway, but for 10 cents I bought a PINK old Comet cleanser. I had never seen this one, but I did some quick research and its apparently from the 1960’s.
I usually don’t have much luck at yard sales, and for the most part this past weekend was no different. But I hit a few close to home, and I was thrilled to have found this little treasure.
It was a bag of these napkin rings, 12 in total. Without missing a beat, I bought the bag for a dollar. I walked away half skipping because I knew that they would perfectly match this pyrex pattern from home:
When I researched these it turns out they are pyrex compatible napkin rings! I never knew there was such a thing, but I love learning something new, while finding a good deal!
The last good deal of the day was this non vintage find, but one that completed our patio a bit:
Finally found a small table for drinks, books, candles, etc. At $3 I didn’t even haggle.
This weekend, I’m hoping to go to a vintage and junk wonderland estate sale and hit a church rummage sale, and if I do I’m sure I will have much more to show!
**Can anyone tell me about these patches, or those napkin rings? I always love to hear about the history of my finds.
You can do everything else online? Why not get help designing an event… ammiright? A small spark of this started years back in my head. Cue the wavy dream sequence filter… It was 2008-ish when I started Peachy Keen Party Queen, a children’s event planning business. I loved putting together creative parties, and planning […]
I know, I know. Fashionably late. I have a good excuse though and that’s because I rolled out a new service… which I’ll talk about in next week’s posting. You’ll notice that I’m moving away from the blog a bit and moving towards more services I can offer to make a difference in people’s lives. […]
