I had all intentions of staying home this weekend and doing some sewing but that is not the way things turned out. There were two estate sales in our area today and the pull was just to much to resist. So I headed over to mom's this morning and off we went. The first sale did not render much but I did get a set of vintage canisters and some old silverware.
The next sale was in Aiken SC, so we had a little ride ahead of us and decided to break out the GPS. Upon arriving at the sale I noticed from the sign that this was the second day of the sale (could be a good thing or a bad thing). I do think it might have been a bad thing in this case. Most everything was picked over and there really wasn't that much left (and it was advertised as a HUGE sale). So either it wasn't that huge or they really had some action on Friday. Anyway we rummaged through what was left and I was pleasantly surprised to find a set of vintage cocktail napkins (which I collect). They are so adorable with the cherries on them and are in great condition. I also found a few other goodies:
On the way home we thought we would hit a couple of thrift stores in Aiken but they were a bust. So we stopped at our Goodwill once we got back to Augusta and I am so glad that we did because I found a vintage "NOEL" candle set.
So we had a pretty successful day and I'm glad I went out however I hope that there is some sewing going on here tomorrow. I have a couple of projects that I am ready to get started.
Hope you all have had a great weekend and found many treasures.
