I vowed to stay home this weekend and work on my ever growing inventory and I did, however I did cheat a little and went to a couple of Estate Sales before work yesterday. I didn't really load up like I usually do, but I did find a few special items. At sale #1 I picked up the following items:

This lovely box (the wood is gorgeous) with a great old lock attached.

And my favorite of the day, this little chick creamer, I did some research and think it is from the 1940's, I found another online that looks very similar except that chick had on a different hat. Anyway, I think she is adorable.

Isn't she sweet!

I was really excited about sale #2, however it did not turn out to be what I had dreamed up in my head. It happened to be located across the street from where I work and is an older house. The ad said they were selling everything inside and out to include light fixtures. So I was looking for some good vintage salvage. That was not the case, I saw one light fixture and it was to pricey for me. So I wandered on through the house and managed to find various small items. Here is what I came away with:

These bird prints were to good to pass up for $1 each, they are really beautiful.

I fell in love with this picture!

Very dainty silver plate napkin rings.

A little bling, love the pin.

A little vintage Christmas, they plugged it in and it works!

So yesterday's finds were enough to satisfy me so that I could stay home today and work on my inventory. I wanted to go out this morning but fought the urge, wonder what I missed!

I would like to thank Cap Creations for featuring me on her "Thrifty Goodness Link Up". Please check out her blog and join the party.
I did get a few more items yesterday, you can go here to see all the goods! And we would love it if you would like us on Facebook!


  1. Your box is stunning. I love old wood, and after looking at the lock, I might start checking out vintage padlocks. The creamer is indeed sweet, but she looks like a duck to me. This coming from a person who thought shoe clips were earrings. Great finds as always thanks for sharing.❤

  2. Love the vintage Christmas piece!

  3. What a great box! All of your finds are wonderful. Love the Christmas Candelabra too, it must look so cute lit up! :)
