Sneaking in a Sale

This past month has been a blur, I have had one day off in the last 25 days. No time for junking! Friday was my first day off and I planned to spend it putting my neglected house back together and getting it ready for the oldest red headed girl's birthday party today. Of course I had to sneak in an estate sale too! Even though I was sleep deprived and had a billion other things that I needed to be doing I just couldn't resist (the sale just sounded too good). I had to run out to the grocery store anyway, so why not make a quick stop at the sale. I ended up staying at the sale for about an hour and a half and brought home some real beauties. So glad I went!

Lucite Purse


(all but one marked sterling, the black & rhinestone earrings are marked Otis-Sterling)

Old Shaving Mirror
(I have always wanted one of these, couldn't believe I found one)

And a few other goodies

The purse and shaving mirror were a gift to me from me. I think I deserved it after this past month! It felt so good to get to go junking after such a long absence.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and found many treasures!

  10. Oh, I'll bet you are glad you took the time to go to that sale! I love the little basket of pearls and the shaving mirror. How enchanting are they? That purse looks like the perfect flight purse . . . you can't hide anything in there. I'll bet the airlines would get a chuckle from seeing it. The linens are exceptional. I'd say you scored big time, congratulations. Hope your work schedule slows down a little now that we are approaching the yard sale season. Have a great day, your devoted follower, Connie :)
