Estate Sale - Antique Store Liquidation

The Antique Store that I purchased all the Storybook Dolls at is going out of business (maybe why I got the dolls so cheap). They advertised a liquidation sale in the paper this week so I ran down yesterday at lunch to check it out. I was a little disappointed as most of the prices were the same as the last time I was there. I didn't buy very much but did find a few things.

This was my best buy I think ($15), I am not sure exactly what it is (if you know help me out). It was tagged as a vintage oak picture frame but I don't think it is a picture frame. I think it is some kind of menu board or bulletin board. It looks like it was made to change things out frequently judging by the hinged back.

I am not sure what I am going to do with it yet but I think this piece has lots of potential. I love it!!

Here are the rest of my meager findings:

I love this vintage fabric and got a good bit for $5. I often pick up vintage picture frames, they just have such charm. Two vintage beaded purses (I don't even know why I bought these?? I guess they just looked like they needed rescuing). A small camel cigarette tin that will be used for storage.

On Friday night, I bought tickets to take the Red Headed Girls to see Peter Pan presented by the Greater Augusta Youth Theatre. We ate at the Boll Weevil Cafe downtown before the show. They loved the play and we had a wonderful time. Their mother and I have decided that this will be a tradition going forward. I love making memories with these sweet girls!

The Strawberry Cake was Delicious!!

Had to get a photo in front of the Theatre.

It's been a wonderful Weekend! Hope you are having a good one too!


  1. The "frame" looks like the thing that churches post the song titles and scripture numbers so that the congregation can Participate easier. There would have been an insert for it to be able to do that. I don't know what those things are called of even if this is one of them. It does look like it has some age to it. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

  2. Love your finds. It sounds like a great tradition to start.
