Estate Sale Finds

There was no shortage of estate sales in Augusta this weekend. I ended up going to one on Thursday morning where you just made a big pile and they gave you a price. I got there a little late and probably missed out on the best stuff but I did end up getting a few good pieces for a very good price. Here are a few of the things that I got at the Thursday sale:

I just really liked this piece and after doing a little research I think it was a really good buy.

I seem to be on a streak with these Angels, I have found several over the past month.

More Swizzle Sticks for my collection!

Really lovely coat in great condition.

I love this old photo, looks like the dog and cat are about to get into a fight!

My brother came over on Friday morning (Mom was unable to join us) and we hit three sales. I was happy to find a lot of vintage holiday stuff. Here are some of the things I bought at the three Friday sales:

Really love this vintage Swiss Dot fabric!

I think I am having buyers remorse on this purchase, but it is really a neat piece. It even come with two boxes of Sparklets refills.

Now if only I can find the shot glasses for this piece!

A vintage blinking tree topper and a box of old ornaments.

I normally don't buy a lot of hankies but this Christmas one was in perfect condition and it's really beautiful!

A vintage box of taper candles.

Angel head picks.

A box of vintage Easter floral picks.

More hankies, again in perfect condition and just too pretty to pass up.

Gurley Turkeys.

These glasses need a little cleaning, but I really like them. Have no idea who the maker is.

Sweet little trio!

I bought the doll for the clothes, unfortunately the doll's head was not salvageable, I did save the body and the eyes to list on Etsy. I can't tell you how gross it was to cut the eyes out of that nasty doll head.

This may have been my favorite find of the day, a honeycomb Santa!

Hope you had a fun weekend of junking and found lots of fabulous things!
