Peach Tree 23 Yard Sale

Mom and I started out early yesterday to attend the Peach Tree 23 Yard Sale through SC. I think this is like the 5th or 6th time that we have attended. We usually go on Saturday but since I was off this past week we decided to go on Friday. The good thing about going on Friday is that I didn't think the traffic was as bad but the bad thing about going on Friday was that I didn't think as many people were set up. However, we still found some really great stuff.

I love this little doll, marked Germany. She even has a full wardrobe. I still need to do a little research on her but think I got her at a great price. She will be going to my Etsy shop soon.





I love this little Powder Puff Wand, there were two but I only bought one. After researching I now wish I would have bought them both. It belonged to the lady's mother that I bought it from. From the 1920's or 30's. This will be going to our Etsy shop soon.





What a steal these cocktail napkins were. They are Madeira cocktail napkins and in new unused condition. Aren't those frogs so cute! Also found some old Rooster Cocktail Napkins. Coming to our  Etsy Shop soon.




A few vintage Christmas rescues. The Bank is in poor condition but for 25 cents I thought  he should come home with me. The Christmas Carol/Coloring Book is in perfect condition. These will go in my vintage Christmas collection.



I collect these Bailey's Cups, was happy to find another to add to the collection.



Lovely Sterling Puffed Heart Necklace.



And a few other odds and ends. An old Bicycle License Plate from Augusta (yes I will keep this), a Ginger Doll Dress, a lovely old frame and some book marks.







We really had a great time. If you live in the area I would recommend you try out the Peach Tree 23, I always find great stuff! 


Hope you are having a great weekend!!

Estate Sale - Henry Street

Well Mom and I seem to be on a roll, another great estate sale this weekend. I was really excited to get to step inside this fabulous old house and poke around.


It was certainly one of the most crowded sales I have been to in a while. People everywhere! We got there about 25 minutes early but sill were way back in line. I think we were there for two and a half hours total between the waiting, digging and standing in line to pay (that was the worst part!).

Anyway, here is what I brought home:


The Red Cross Nurse Picture is just gorgeous, not sure if I will be able to let go of her, she may end up on my wall. She is illustrated by Alberto Vargas, who I think was better known for his pin ups.



I also found a few silhouettes, I love the Nurse one. 



And lots of other miscellaneous odds and ends, Art Deco Tray, 1930's First Communion Certificate,
dresser jar, feather duster, quilted Red Cross pillow, spice holder, Turkey planter, Catholic candle holders, sweet baby diaper shirt and an old suit case!











We were planning on going to another sale after this one but we were both worn out after we finally checked out and got our junk loaded in the car. It was almost 80 degrees here yesterday (crazy for February) and so hot in that house. We took our loot and went home.

Hoping our streak continues!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Estate Sales

It's been a couple of months since mom and I have been out junking. Usually December and January are slow months for us. We were really ready to get back to it so I took off on Friday and we hit a couple of estate sales.

The first sale was in North Augusta and was advertised as a tour through Germany. It was a small house packed with lots of interesting stuff. Here are the things I brought home from the North Augusta sale:

We bought a ton of Wendt and Kuhn pieces.




There were also a couple of other Erzgebirge pieces, a shepherd, sheep and teeny tiny deer.




This German Sampler was two lovely to pass up.


I loved these old photograph cases.




And a few other odds and ends.





The second sale was in the Hill Area of Augusta. I was really disappointed at first, I went from room to room and didn't see anything that spoke to me. The very last room I walked into (last bedroom upstairs) held all the treasure - well for me at least. Dolls, Dolls and more Dolls.



















I had a lot of fun digging through all the doll stuff when I got home. Looks like I will be busy in my Etsy shop for a while!

Hope  you are having a wonderful weekend!
