Don't You Just Love .......

the last day of an estate sale?

I have had a little mantra that I have been saying to myself the past few weeks.....that I did not need to bring anything else into the house, and I didn't need to spend any money.

Well, that thought went out the window when I saw the estate sale sign. I couldn't help's like the car had a mind of it's own. You all know the feeling.
The first thing the gentleman watching the door said to me when I walked in was all prices negotiable....

Music to my ears!!!

Not too much left, but I did manage to find a few things that I couldn't live without.

A vintage nursery planter, not will look great holding pens and pencils on my desk
Originally, $15.00! Sunday price....$1.00
A little choir girl
Who could pass up those long lashes, and rosey checks?
Originally $20.00 Sunday price....$2.00
An ottoman..once recovered perfect for the living room
Would you have ever paid $40.00 for this? Never!
Sunday price....$8.00

Well, so much for my mantra!



  1. No complaints about those Sunday prices!

  2. Fun finds! That little vintage baby planter will always make you smile! A little upholstery project on the ottoman? welt cord is easy to do and will dress that right up if you do it yourself.

  3. Love the bargain prices you got. How nice that there was still some things left for you to find.
