I also picked up this pair of beautiful pheasants.
So great finds at sale #1. On to the second sale. I found quite a bit of little stuff and only spent $15. For my $15 dollars I took home 2 Vera Scarfs, 10 vintage linen tea towels, a beautiful vintage tablecloth, 2 juice glasses made in Italy, about 12 old small locks, a rosary, and an old sock darner.
Today I was able to spend some time with 2 of my most favorite people in the world, my Mom and my Brother. We set out early to an Estate Sale in Louisville GA. This sale advertised some stuff that is right up my alley, barrister book cases, metal cabinets and some really paint challenged furniture. I was really disappointed that most of these items were really damaged, already purchased or overpriced. So no big items purchased here. I did find one paint challenged item that me and my brother (my mom - not so much) thought was pretty cool. I think it's a bird perch. I can picture a bird taking a break on this and getting his second wind and flying away again. I can also picture this in my house with tea towels hanging on it. I also found a cute old planter/pot. My brother bought a big box of vintage prints and magazines. He was kind enough to give me a few. Mom bought a really great lamp.

One last item I found at this sale was a 1960's Catalina Bathing Suit.
What a wonderful weekend. Hope you are having a great weekend and have found some lovely treasures.
I took quite a few pictures of ads from the old magazines my brother gave me (late 40's New York Times Magazine, 1922 Party Book, 1960's needlecraft & knitting). If you would like to see the ads, you can go here.
If you would like to see some photos from our road trip you can find them here.
