Estate Sale!

Today I turned onto our road and there was an 'Estate Sale' sign! My car seemed to have a mind of it's own and followed the signs up the hill and around a corner to a house not half a mile from us. Amazing amount of 'stuff'...someone suggested that they brought more stuff in for the sale so I asked when I paid. No-the house was jammed packed full! Everything was half price so I was determined to find something. Right away I found a metal ice cream chair. Not in great shape but I need a chair as a plant stand at the cottage for $12~but wait-half price-$6! Not much vintage or antique until I went down into the retro basement with red shag carpet and dark panelling. There was a basket of wooden blocks, each with a nursery rhyme on it. The price was high but at half price, I didn't think it was bad. Now I need to wash the blocks to try to get rid of the musty odor. What a find!

  1. Your wooden blocks are very sweet. As much as I love thrifting and visiting my favorite antique stores, I've never been to an estate sale. I told my mom we needed to do that sometime.
