Mom and I mapped out our Friday morning excursion. We decided that first we would go to an estate sale way out in the country and then come back by the only yard sale that sounded interesting. As we passed country homes, old barns, horses and cows, Mom asked out loud, “I wonder what we are going to find today?” I silently knew we would find something, but I wondered if our trip would be worth the gas it was taking to get there.
The country estate sale was not professionally staged which is both good and bad. The items were not displayed well and most were not priced, but at least those prices turned out to be a little lower.
After a bit of digging, we found a mirrored dresser tray, an old spool of green seam binding (love the graphics) and a small Floragold bowl.
This pretty plate with pink roses from
was Mom’s pick. Germany
I also found a
souvenir plate and 2 blue fridgies, but only one lid. *sad face* Mississippi
On our way back into town we passed by an old junk market, so we decided to stop. We had good luck there before, so why not!
This set of 6 vintage jelly glasses called out to me.
Also saying “take me home” was this pretty bowl and dessert plates in the “Petal” pattern.
But nothing could have prepared me for what I found next…..elegant glassware at a junk shop.....a set of Candlewick salt and pepper shakers!!!
And that old crate I mentioned in the title?
I found it at the yard sale.
It was hiding in the garage under a table of miscellaneous Christmas stuff. I asked the guy if it was for sale. He said, “Sure” and dug it out. It turned out to be a old Peters Ammunition Box.
Did you go to any sales this weekend?
