Estate Sales - Washington GA

Mom and I took a little road trip to Washington GA last weekend for an Estate Sale. I think both our jaws hit the floor at first sight of the lovely old home.

We attended the sale on a Saturday and everything was 50% off. That can be a good thing or a bad thing I guess, great prices but less to pick from. I would have loved to have been able to go on the first day to see what all was there. It was somewhat cleaned out when we got there so I had to really dig to find some good junk.

I didn't walk away with as much as I would have liked but I did get a few good pieces (at least I think they are good pieces, Mom always looks at what I pick up and I swear she gives me an eye roll when I am not looking).

Sweet little Ohio Art Co watering can, it is tiny and so adorable!

I don't know why, but I love these old paperweights, this one is dated 1949.

My photo doesn't do this beautiful small pint justice, it is lovely in a Italian Florentine frame.

Salvage usually sells well for me. Love this old water faucet.

Well what can I say, I had to save this. It is a partial piece of a 1930's movie poster, really in delicate condition but I loved the graphics and colors, just look at those two!

This is an old blueprint for a house in Atlanta, 1939. Would be a great piece to frame and hang on the wall.

I'm going to be honest, I did not know what these were when I picked them up but I just loved the look of them. Once I got home I found out they are surveyor's measuring sticks. There would have been three pieces I believe, so not a complete set, but I still love them. No idea what I am going to do with them yet.

After we left the sale we drove down to the square in Washington and looked through a few shops and Art Galleries. I stumbled across a good find in one of the antique shops. I picked up a framed vintage cardboard catalog page and really fell in love with it, when I asked the shop lady about it she said she thought she still had the catalog it came out of. She dug it out and I ended up buying it too (it had two more good pages in it).

We stopped by Antique and Uncle Junk's in Thomson GA on our way home, but not much luck there. Just bought an old stamp for $2.

It was a fun day spent with my best friend - my wonderful mother!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!


  1. Love the old faucet! Junking is so much fun.

  2. Quite a nice haul at the estate sale considering it was the last day. I think we always wonder what got away without us seeing it or having a chance to purchase it. lol

  3. I collect the crocheted crosses and watering cans, so I would have picked up those two items also. I need a junk fix, I'm gonna have to find somewhere to go this week !
