Estate Sale, Church Sales and Yard Sales

Mom and I finally had a really good couple of weeks in our junk hunting quest and I really needed it. I have no problem admitting that I am addicted to junk and it has been a long while since we have hit a good sale and both walked away completely satisfied. Last weekend we hit a couple of yard sales, a church sale and an Estate Sale. 

The church sale that we attended is a semi annual event and I haven't found anything there the past couple of times I have attended. I told Mom before we got there I was not expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised. Found a couple of wonderful vintage Christmas items!

Aren't these two guys just adorable!

Lovely Wax Angel!

I also found this cute vintage box of Duck and Chicken Train Set Candle Holders, I just love them! The lead guy is a bobble head!

The estate sale yielded numerous vintage treasures!

Vintage 8" Hat Pins in Original packaging. Late 1800's I am thinking.

Not sure of the age of these cards but I love the Art Deco style.

Lots of little dolls needing to be rescued. The tree topper was found at the Church Sale.

Marked Germany, this little cart holds some circus animals. Haven't really researched it yet so not sure of it's age.

I squealed with delight when I opened a box in the garage and found this sweet couple!

Loved the little doll dresser. The tin picnic basket was found at a garage sale for $1. 

This cake plate is to die for. It is just so gorgeous! I believe it is 1930's Fostoria. I will be keeping this lovely for myself.

This past Wednesday I ran over to an estate sale to get a feel for the prices, they were pretty steep but I did find a couple of things I think were good buys. I had to have the little boy mannequin store display and the Wendt and Kuhn music box was a good buy for resale. It still plays beautifully.

So yeah, we have had a good couple of weeks, hoping the trend continues.

Hope you all are having a great weekend!


  1. Love it all ! For the past 3 months we've been pricing and arranging donations for our church sale. The main one was last weekend, but we did open up a week early and we're still selling, since we have so much left over. Wish you were here !

  2. oh my, you founds some awesome treasures!!
